Art-Infused Interior Décor

Max Strang's Resysta Lake House
Resysta is the future—ecologically friendly, sustainable and with the look and feel of real wood, it’s the “greenest” new material you’ve never heard of. Thanks to Miami architect Max Strang, you’ll be able to see it in use at the Lake House—a sleek new home in Winter Haven, Florida—which, upon completion, will feature the largest residential application of the material in the US.
Artist Brian Donnelly (aka KAWS) has been compared to Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring: All straddle the divide between street and institutional art. “I only like to work with operations that are part of my life already,” he reveals, and clearly The Standard Spa is one of them. His newest collaboration is the KAWS/Standard light bulbs, a limited-edition set of three bulbs with red, purple and green filaments in KAWS’ signature XX mark. The perfect addition to any art collection, they’ll be part of a major installation at The Standard New York in April. The Standard Spa, 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach;
