Zoe Bios Creative was founded in Silver Lake, California in 2011.

Zoe Bios Creative has coined the term ‘ArtEntouré’ to express a full circle cross-pollination of the art world with the design world. “Our fusion of art and design inspires a vitality of meaning in the everyday, hopefully provoking a higher consciousness in the way we live with, and make use of objects.”

ZBC’s is also a traverse across cultures, understanding how the relativity of meaning thrives along side the persistent universality of beauty. “We focus on the visual organization of new forms—chance arrangements and purposeful compositions. We want to inspire unconventional thinking, and creative design solutions while maintaining a mindful attention to beauty and contentment in every object that we offer…we are artists, curators, and collaborators.”

Reemerging Women: Mid-century Modern + Industrial Design

ZBC House Collection

By: DG

Last week the New York Times featured an article on a curated series by fashion designer Rachel Comey and artist Leanne Shapton, who together decided to open a dialog focusing on women who’ve made a huge impact in the field of mid-century modern and industrial design but are otherwise not exactly household names (with the exception of Florence Knoll). This spurred from the very challenge Comey experienced immediately upon her search for women-designed furnishings in her new LA boutique a couple of years ago. Now the two have created a small exhibition at the Rachel Comey’s SOHO boutique titled SEATS: Studies of Furniture Designed by Women. The show includes over 100 sketches by Shapton, depicting abstracted versions of each showcased designer's work. Included are names such as Gae Aulenti, who is most known for impressively converting a Parisian train station into the Musée d’Orsay; Florence Knoll of Knoll Design, Greta Magnusson Grossman, an industrial designer most known for her groundbreaking lamps for Barker Brothers; Anna Castelli Ferrieri who was also the first woman to graduate from Milan Polytechnic; Cini Boeri, another iconic Italian architect and industrial designer; and Eileen Gray who became a lead designer during the Art Deco era. It’s worth checking out the show to further inform oneself on the history of these women and their successes, and to see the playful variations on each design, giving a new light to each piece.
