The impressive Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute which broke ground at The University of Utah got some love at ArchDaily this week. A collaboration between EDA Architects, Yazdani Studio of Cannon Design, and Arup, "Slated as a space to live, work, and create, the building supports the mission to make the Lassonde Institute an international destination for student entrepreneurs, innovators and “makers.” The Studios will open for students in fall of 2016." – Archdaily

ABOUT SALT LAKE DESIGN WEEK
The purpose of Design Week is to raise the public awareness of the impact that all design—graphic, product, fashion, architecture, advertising, etc.—has in Utah. Design Week brings together a diverse community of design professionals as well as local businesses, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, students and more. The goal of helping local designers interact, collaborate, educated and inspire each other in order to build a stronger creative community.
Design Week is hosted by the Salt Lake City chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design, in partnership with AAF, AIA, ASID, ISDA, IIDA, IxDA, SEGD, Utah Center for Architecture, Utah Film Center and other design groups, museums, businesses and schools.

The techno pioneer’s composition will premiere alongside 3 other musical adaptations of the short film, at Centre Pompidou in Paris on 19th September
“What would we see differently if the music was different?”
Press Release – This was the question posed by Bertrand Bonello for his latest artistic project based around Dimitri Kirsanoff’s 1928 film Brumes d’automne. The French film director invited Richie Hawtin and Diana Soh to create an original score for the film to be shown as part of a special exhibition at Centre Pompidou in Paris.
“Twelve minutes in black and white, dating from 1928. Some leaves in the sky, reflections in the water of a lake, a letter burning in a fireplace, a few drops of rain, Nadia Sibirskaya’s eyes full of tears. This film is a breathtaking beauty, an emotion that few words can explain. The original music is by Paul Devred. What would we see differently if the music was different?” –BertrandBonello
As well as creating his own composition for the film, inspired by his classical music background, Bonello invited Richie Hawtin (Plastikman) and Diana Soh to each create a twelve-minute composition to showcase their own interpretation of the same images. The result is a program of four musical compositions on one screen – Paul Devred, Richie Hawtin, Diana Soh and Bertrand Bonello.
It’s not the first time electronic music pioneer Hawtin has been involved in artistic endeavors outside of the electronic music sphere. In 2011 Anish Kapoor invited Hawtin to activate his sculpture Leviathan with a performance at Paris’s Grand Palais for the annual public art festival Monumenta and just last year he was invited to perform live as Plastikman at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, by invitation of Dior Artistic Director Raf Simons. Naturally, Hawtin was delighted at the opportunity to join Bonello in this exploration of sound and create his debut film score for silent movie Brumes d’automne.
The opening of the exhibition will take place 19th September at the Centre Pompidou in Paris with special performances from Bonello, Ingrid Caven and Richie Hawtin.

Get an eyeful of the new, bright and bushy tailed Provisions Restaurant in East Millcreek which is housed in the former Lugäno space on 3364 S 2300 E. Still in transformation but looking great at the preview dinner we attended this past Tuesday.
I was happy to assist chef/owner Tyler Stokes with the branding, menu and web design of Provisions which took cues from the interior touches designer Rachel Hodson brought to the project ...like, that amazing wallpaper. The punch of modern coral orange is kept at bay by classic, clean white moulding and a slick grey cement floor throughout. Orange continues into the kitchen, cladding the wood-fired oven in a warm inviting glow.
Stokes was associated with two restaurants prior in Sun Valley, Idaho, (Owner of Dashi and Executive Chef of Globus which was featured on Rachel Ray) opened Provisions to highlight "regional, organic and sustainable ingredients... using new and old world technique’s to create exciting flavor profiles, textures and visual enjoyment." What's also inspiring is that he'll be serving house made pasta, wood fire pizzas, seafood, local meats and vegetables from the same kitchen he worked in as a teenager growing up in nearby Park City. An impressive third act from a young and talented chef.

Have you heard about the iPhone app by local Utah gallerists turned entrepreneurs that can "Instantly Frame" photos from your phone to your doorstep? I gave it a try last week and the resulting piece turned out beautifully.
Just upload any photo (or file) from your phone to the Instantly Framed app. From there, I.F. prints it on photo luster paper using archival inks and frame it in a beautiful USA made FSC certified black walnut frame with recycled backing materials. The whole process takes less than 5 business days. Pretty cool no?
NCM Readers can use the discount code "CINEWCITY10" to get $10 off one frame and $20 off 2 frames from now until Monday Oct. 6th. Learn more and download the app over at www.instantlyframed.com.
What's awesome about The Rose Establishment, apart from their talent for coffee (now available in nitro form) and tea is their near perfect seasonal menus. Deceptively simple food that's so frikken' good it's occasionally becoming an issue getting a cup of their 'Utah corn soup' or that last sea salted chocolate chunk cookie before lunch has even started. Not to fear though, everything The Rose offers is worthy of your tastebuds. I feel like the avocado toast craze caught on here first (in Utah) and is understandably every hipster/foodie/farmers-market-goers trusty standby. But it's the heirloom carrot salad that has been my go-to this summer. Shown above with the daily special in-house canned peaches and goat cheese toast, all as delicious as it looks. Visit early and often. www.theroseestb.com
