We’re celebrating springtime holidays and traditions with two new colors this week: Cherry Blossom and Peeps Yellow Fiberglass Shell Chairs. The soft colors complement the season perfectly, as cherry trees burst into life and children anticipate baskets filled with goodies. If the blooming wildlife all around us isn’t enough to bring you out of the winter blues, then just imagine the soft squishy delight of marshmallow Peeps! Bring springtime into your space with Cherry Blossom and Peeps Yellow.

Covering thirty acres in the Borders area of Scotland, the Garden of Cosmic Speculation uses nature to celebrate science, both intellectually and through the senses, including the sense of humor. A water cascade of steps recounts the story of the universe, a terrace shows the distortion of space and time caused by a black hole, a “Quark Walk” takes the visitor on a journey to the smallest building blocks of matter, and a series of landforms and lakes recall fractal geometry.
From 1989 until 1995, Landscape architect Charles Jencks and his wife Maggie Keswick, an expert on Chinese gardens, met with horticulturists and scientists in order to design a landscape that would bridge the worlds of art, nature and science. Jencks continued work on the garden through 2007. Today, it is open to the public one day a year through the Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and helps to raise money for Maggie’s Centres, a cancer care foundation named after Jenck’s late wife.

The first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States, this multidisciplinary exhibition examines the historical sweep of the movement from its inception with F. T. Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II.
Presenting over 300 works executed between 1909 and 1944, the chronological exhibition encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography, advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater, and performance. Catch it at the Guggenheim from now until September 1, 2014. If you’re not in New York between now and then, see a sample below and read more on the official exhibit website.
