Boutique Design - June 2018 - 4

Designers' Day jobs (OK their day-to-night jobs)
are about making the world more beautiful. But, there's a
lot of "ugly" outside of the experiential bubbles of hospitality spaces that can't be prettied up with great art or
the right chair. This issue celebrates the creatives who
put as much effort into designing a better life for people
in need as they do into crafting a built environment that
is healthy, inspirational and aspirational.
You can, too. The seven Heroes and Mavericks
featured in the story that starts on page 28 share insights
on how and why they make doing well and doing good
essential parts of their lives. Though their titles, companies and causes are diverse, they all share the idea that
everybody can do something. Maybe that just means
writing out a check or taking a donation to the local
food pantry. OK, so that's not going to have the impact
of building a hospital or school in Africa or working to
improve the plight of a Downtown Los Angeles' homeless community, but it will bring meaningful change to a
fellow human who doesn't have enough-whether that's
food, shelter or hope.
These thought-and-action leaders are all about
change. They don't just put that in the box of their philanthropic work; they take it into the workplace as well.
Mavericks one and all, even the most introverted and
soft-spoken, found a powerful voice when they had to
stand up for design concepts clients didn't like or fight
against management processes that favored fawning,
complacency and speak-when-spoken-to constraints.
Their conscience-driven approach to their life- and
workstyles is also effecting a sea change in office culture.

Expect more hospitality design and corporate ownership/operations design departments to integrate kinder
work/balance programs and social responsibility initiatives into their pitch to get and retain the most talented
teams. As the features on new trends in fitness and wellness design, which starts on page 20, and Chicago's Hotel
Zachary, which opens on page 42, demonstrate, every
project can be an opportunity to improve one person's
life-or at least his or her momentary mood. Whether
that means providing cool, functional destinations that
make health-conscious guests want to post a personal
best or amping up neighborhood pride with a hotel
that's a second home for travelers and locals, design can
do a lot to move the life/lifestyle needle.
What's good for business can also be "good" generally. Just ask this month's Exit Interview, Miriam Torres,
cofounder of Parker-Torres Design with Barbara Parker.
In her comments in the story on page 84, she talks about
her hopes to open a new office in her native Puerto Rico
to stimulate economic growth and provide jobs in the
lingering aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
