The Grid challenges Drake One Fifty chef Jonathan Pong to create a dish based on a Canadian Heritage Moment.
In our first design icon post, we decided to begin with one of the most prolific and important North American mid-century modern design duos of all time, Charles and Ray Eames. Known for their celebrated furniture designed for the Michigan-based manufacturer Herman Miller, the husband and wife team believed that design is not for the elite, but for the masses.
“There are no absolutes. For every rule there is, it’s made to be broken and if you have style you can wear anything you want.” – Nick Wooster
That’s easy for ‘The Woost’ to say. This fashion week fixture + previous Men’s Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman embodies impeccable taste. With his handlebar moustache, tattoo sleeves + dandy style, Nick Wooster has been dubbed the “street style demi-god”, making photogs rush to capture his every (amazing!) look. What makes Wooster’s style so inspirational + ionic you ask? It comes down to his ability to mash prints, colours + proportions with the utmost of restraint. The result is always an undeniably cool look, which frankly would leave the average person walking around looking like a fool.
