Teknion NeoCon Showroom by Michael Vanderbyl, Chicago, 2012

"My high school guidance counselor told me I wasn't smart enough to be an architect," Michael Vanderbyl said, wryly, as he handed me the program produced last fall on the occasion of his induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame. Given the multidisciplinary course of his extraordinary career, perhaps the counselor meant to say something more like, "Vanderbyl is too intelligent to be limited to just one pursuit."

The Hall of Fame award is reserved for individuals who have made a significant contribution to the prominence of the design industry. Other inductees over the years have included such legendary figures as Frank Gehry, Antonio Citterio, and Massimo and Lella Vignelli.

"It's very flattering to be counted among such company," Vanderbyl says. "I had attended the Hall of Fame event in the past -- it's held at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan -- and it was fantastic to be recognized there myself."

It’s not uncommon for jewelers to draw inspiration from architecture, but Christopher Baas actually was a modeler of buildings before segueing into jewelry.

As an architecture student at California College of the Arts, he began experimenting with the digital software typically employed to design steel building frameworks, using it to create miniature edifices in the form of sculptural geometric cuffs. He teamed up with CCA interior design student Carleigh Wamberg to found Fathom and Form, and in May the Outer Richmond–based pair introduced their first full collection.
