W O R L D B Y D E S I G N Western Europe N Small Towns, Exploring Western Europe: Part II B Y K E L L Y H U S H I N HERE’S WHERE WORLD BY DESIGN MAY BE HEADING IN THE NEXT ISSUE: n the third installation of our World by DESIGN (WBD) series, BD takes international inspiration seekers to one of the world’s most artistically-ripe locales. There are few places as brimming with ancient art history as the famous cities of Western Europe — Rome, Paris, Madrid — to name a few. But it isn’t just such major hubs that foster fresh hospitality development. For the Arts & Culture issue WBD travels again to Italy and Switzerland; this time to unassumingly remote towns that prove a place need not be a main metropolitan zone to attract innovative, forward thinkers in hospitality design. I Simone Micheli has grown into one of Italy’s foremost contemporary designers; a professor of architecture in Florence and Milan, and founder of Simone Micheli Architectural Hero — an impressive claim of a name with an explanation to suit. Heinz Julen, a Swiss-artist, who was raised in the mountainous Penine Alps region, taught himself architecture and product design and established himself as a wellreceived architect and designer in the region, not without a fair share of controversy along the way. Watch out for the sidebar, where even more Western European locales and designers are exposed. 32 • boutique DESIGN march/april 2010 > Big Ideas The Caribbean South Africa South America The Middle East Western Europe Eastern Europe Far East Australia Scandinavia North America India W > > E > S
