Pierre Bergé, the co-founder of French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent, patron of the arts and passionate AIDS campaigner, has died at the age of 86. Bergé passed away this morning at his home in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence after a long illness.
Bergé was the longtime companion of Yves Saint Laurent, and the financial figurehead behind the maison he co-founded with the renowned fashion designer in 1961. The creation of the ‘Rive Gauche’ label in 1966 heralded the revolutionary concept of ready-to-wear – Yves Saint Laurent became renowned for democratising the stiff and elitist world of haute couture.
From Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Mondrian’ dress to the androgynous ‘Le Smoking’ tuxedo suit, the brand’s designs were a pioneering force behind the Parisian fashion landscape during the sixties and seventies. It was a business that continually expanded into new territories, including fragrance and Paloma Picasso-designed accessories, and catered to the sartorial needs of figures including Marie-H..
There isn’t a catch-all response to the question posed by the Wellcome Collection’s new exhibition, ‘Can Graphic Design Save Your Life?’ The answer, as curator Lucienne Roberts has discovered after several years of sifting through the archives, is contradictory to say the least. As co-founder, with Rebecca Wright, of GraphicDesign&, a publishing house that explores graphic design’s social role, Roberts has long been interested in ‘demonstrating the value’ of the discipline. ‘There are very few subjects that are as essential as health,’ she says. ‘We knew the pharmaceutical industry was a really rich area to explore. It lends itself to quite a minimal, abstract approach.’
Drawing on Wellcome’s own massive collection, as well as loans from companies and individuals, Roberts worked with Jason Holley and Satoshi Isono of Universal Design Studio to shape the exhibition. ‘We looked at it as a graphic space,’ says Holley, ‘using composition, architecture, colour and iconography.’ From the (f..
Photo by Christine Roy According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, the number of people in the global labor force will reach 3.5 billion by 2030 — and yet there will still be a shortage of skilled workers. The result is likely to be intensified global competition for talent. Rather than assuming we’ll work in one location, in our native culture, we will need new skills, attitudes, and behaviors that help us work across cultures. Our ways of thinking about careers, colleagues, and collaboration will need to become more flexible and adaptable. My five-year study of the global workforce at Rakuten, the Japan-based e-commerce powerhouse, gave me a close-up look at what will drive success for this new type of global worker.
Prior to 2010, Rakuten had been a multilingual global company. The Japanese employees in the Tokyo headquarters communicated in Japanese, the Americans in the U.S. subsidiary spoke English, and the workers in Asia, Europe, and South America spoke a mixture o..
Based in the Ribera del Duero region of northern Spain, Danish winemaker Peter Sisseck is known for the delicately crafted wines he produces under the Pingus label. The same description could be applied to his new home and farmstead, recently completed to a design by Copenhagen’s Henning Larsen Architects. Set in an isolated and picturesque spot in Castilla y León, the farm is around ten kilometres away from the main Pingus vineyards, and now forms part of a symbiotic production system in which every element is carefully considered.
‘We cultivate our grapes biodynamically and in order to do that we need compost for the vineyards,’ explains Sisseck. ‘Most people now use artificial fertilisers, but it’s really important for the vineyards that we stimulate them in an organic way because you need a lot of micro-organisms in the soil. So it’s been an ambition to create a farm for quite some time now. It’s up and running and already proving to be one of the best decisions that we ever took...
“There’s no team without trust,” says Paul Santagata, Head of Industry at Google. He knows the results of the tech giant’s massive two-year study on team performance, which revealed that the highest-performing teams have one thing in common: psychological safety, the belief that you won’t be punished when you make a mistake. Studies show that psychological safety allows for moderate risk-taking, speaking your mind, creativity, and sticking your neck out without fear of having it cut off — just the types of behavior that lead to market breakthroughs.
Ancient evolutionary adaptations explain why psychological safety is both fragile and vital to success in uncertain, interdependent environments. The brain processes a provocation by a boss, competitive coworker, or dismissive subordinate as a life-or-death threat. The amygdala, the alarm bell in the brain, ignites the fight-or-flight response, hijacking higher brain centers. This “act first, think later” brain structure shuts down perspec..
It’s a challenge to work with people — peers, junior colleagues, or even bosses — who just don’t listen. Whether your colleagues interrupt you, ramble on, seem distracted, or are always waiting for their turn to talk, the impact is the same: You don’t feel heard, and the chances for misunderstandings — and mistakes — rise. Are there tactics you can use to encourage your colleagues to listen better? Should you talk to them about their poor listening skills? What’s the best way to deliver the message?
What the Experts Say
“Dealing with colleagues who don’t listen is both hard and frustrating,” says Sabina Nawaz, a global CEO and executive coach. “When someone is not fully present, it erodes the quality of what you say.” The experience might, for instance, “cause you to lose your train of thought” or “suppress what you originally planned to communicate.” It’s also possible that “you could get derailed into the drama of why it’s happening,” she adds. “You might take it personally and thin..
L’utilisation de bases de données en entreprise est aussi vieille que l’informatique, par contre la destination et l’usage de ces données change ce qui force les entreprises à faire face à leurs négligences.
L’intérêt premier d’une base de donnée est le stockage et la facilité d’accès aux données. Nul besoin de démontrer comment, par exemple, une base de donnée produit est infiniment plus efficace à manipuler qu’un catalogue papier de milliers de références, chacune disponible en de multiples versions ou comment un annuaire d’entreprise vaut mieux que l’annuaire papier rarement exhaustif et à jour qu’il a remplacé.
La fin de l’autoconsommation des bases de données Mais pendant longtemps les données ont largement été autoconsommées. Comprenez qu’elles avaient vocation être utilisées par ceux qui les renseignaient. Leur qualité dépendant donc principalement de la capacité d’une personne à connaitre suffisamment son sujet pour se satisfaire de données imparfaites ou inexactes.
Fetishised in the new book Ornament is Crime: Modernist Architecture, the modern house has never felt so iconic. Editors Matt Gibberd and Albert Hill have curated a visually-led book of black-and-white photographs showing detached modern houses. Modernist architects of the world – from Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe and Eileen Gray, to Sean Godsell and Arne Jacobsen and many more – unite across double page spreads, where houses are organised by formal similarities, regardless of chronology or location.
‘The purpose of this book is to identify its key aesthetic characteristics and show how this most trailblazing of architectural styles is still thriving in the twenty-first century,’ writes Gibberd in the introduction. Here he visualises the great modernist architects as a family tree, with Smiljan Radic, Tadao Ando and John Pawson on the lower branches, and the greats at the top – Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. Yet beyond the introduction, which draws connections betwee..
The current U.S. presidential administration and congressional leadership have spent months talking about tax reform. The next several months will determine whether such a reform will materialize and what it might include. Unfortunately, the prospects for reform are not promising. Instead of reform, we may see a tax cut — and that is not the same thing.
The two central questions in tax policy are how much revenue to raise and how to allocate the tax burden among income groups. The answer to the first question determines how much of the nation’s resources will be devoted to public purchases — such as defense, infrastructure, public health, education, and social safety net programs — and how much to private uses.
These are political choices, not just economic ones, though economists can help educate policy makers about the trade-offs they face. We can estimate the budgetary and distributional effects of various tax changes. We can offer our views, sometimes conflicting, on how the leve..
