Our October issue explores two design provinces that arguably represent the points separated by the greatest distance in our industry's geography. We begin by walking through a rich anthology of residential environments, where designers and architects have worked intimately with their patrons to create visions—at times from the ground up, as in our Indianapolis project—intended to last a lifetime. Traveling to the opposite end of the creative map, reaching places as far afield as Phuket, Thailand, we survey a series of lavish hospitality projects. Here, designers completely take over the responsibilities and risks—as well as the rewards. Unlike residential interiors, these installations are intended for anonymous users to experience only during finite stays.
Also in this issue, we've expanded the traditional reach of interior-design coverage into another dimension, visiting the sets of Zoolander, Ben Stiller's zany new comedy. Often overlooked, film design lasts only briefly in real time but packs a powerful emotional charge. And we get to experience it wearing only our imagination.
