Each year in February, Palm Springs hosts Modernism Week — a festival to celebrate mid-century modern design, art, architecture, fashion, and culture. This year, Monogram co-hosted an event at the Kirk Douglas Estate, one of the homes on the mid-century modern architecture tour.
The event kicked off the home remodeling project, which includes a new kitchen featuring Monogram products. The remodel will be revealed on the tour in February of 2020. Conversation and cocktails were offered along with a discussion panel moderated by Michela Abram, former CEO of Dwell and current CEO for MOCA+. The panel featured Diane Bald, owner of the Kirk Douglas Estate, architect Joel Turkel, fashion designer Trina Turk, architectural designer Barton Jahncke, and James Tyler, award-winning architect who worked with California modernist Craig Ellwood in the 1960s-1970s.
