    Innovative Designer Joseph Ben Joseph

    Blog Inspiring Jewish Faces:

    If you’ve been to New York, you’ve likely stopped for a falafel at Maoz, an internationally famous vegetarian joint with world class interior design that makes people stop for just a minute and think, “Am I really eating a cheap sandwich right now? Because this place is gorgeous!”

    And if you’ve had that feeling, it’s because Joseph Ben Joseph poured his heart into the modern design. Ben Joseph, a 44 year old Israeli immigrant now living and working in Manhattan, has been designing some of New York’s most iconic restaurant spaces for years and his story is just as rich and vibrant as the dining spaces he creates.

    He’s a transplant from the fashion world in Israel, only studying interior design well into adulthood at Sapir College in the early 2000s. He moved to New York shortly after finishing design school to move onto a less expected course of study— Yeshiva. He had already developed the technical skill set for beautiful design, but knew that his studying would never be complete without having a deep set of spiritual roots.

    “I’m very happy that I’ve combined my artistic life and spiritual life together,” says Ben Joseph of his study path. “Today I’m a cantor in the Sephardic Synagogue within the 5th Avenue Synagogue. I have been for four years already. My goal is to improve people’s lives, and I like to think I do that by creating beautiful spaces but also by sharing spiritual wisdom from the Torah. To improve our way our thinking with the belief in something that is bigger than us is the beginning of improving everything. We are not alone.”

    He is also the creative design mind behind popular Midtown spots like Soomsoom, Filicori, Wrapido, and Pitopia— a list that puts him ahead as the top sandwich spot designer in a city of 8 million lunch eaters.

    “I don’t stop my work at restaurants. I design business identities and total brands, and I do it from a place of wanting to a create a better world inside and out. Our connection to something bigger inspires our material work, and I love that Judaism teaches action, understanding, and education because these are the ways to achieve every goal.”

    When meeting Joseph Ben Joseph, sure, you find a creative man— but within minutes of knowing him you see that his every action is carefully measured, his speech is gentle and encouraging, but firm enough to let you know when you’re missing the mark. “People don’t really have time for anything these days. My dream is that every Jewish person can make the time for one day a week at synagogue to listen, read Kabbalistic wisdom, or just go out and make the world much better.”

    Lin Mao Sen tea shop by Ahead Concept

    The traditional tea ceremony is used from concept and vision to design, structure and atmosphere, creating a beautiful and delicate presentation. The perspective along the ceiling border to the pillar structure conveys dynamic interaction. The large wooden plaque in the hall implies Eastern Heritage and thus extends the continuity of cultural connotation. Listed in a symmetrical order, the value principal is derived from a metaphor for the spatial texture of oriental residence.

    A return to natural convergence is subtly weaved into the ceiling line for a sense of relaxation and release. The materials are reflected with an ecological perspective, integrating old concepts with new to generate a sense of freedom and coexistence with the urban environment. Peacock blue, lake green, and mustard yellow saturation, fusion lines and staggered surface relationship, and a background with subtle oriental heritage all extend the continuity of space and connotation.

    The interpretation of the contemplation of environmental heritage blends old and new concepts and matches them to the pattern of ritualistic attempt. In the process of the interactions between the products and consumers, human implications are highlighted. Aesthetic implications are used to show functions, routes and displays, restoring the original entrepreneurial spirit.

    Coast store by Checkland Kindleysides,

     

    Everyday glamour: no longer defined by just occasion wear, Coast’s new store concept celebrates beautiful, versatile product that seamlessly transitions from day to night. This is about redefining the rules of dressing up and giving women an excuse to feel glamorous every day, no matter the occasion.

    Sophisticated Product Backdrop: inspired by the idea of “getting ready”, the design concept takes cues from a domestic dressing room. A neutral, calm colour palette is communicated through a blend of textured materials that transform the store into a sophisticated product backdrop. This is a soft take on the subtle contrast of light and dark, channelling the transition from day to night, and the versatility of their product.

    The Dressing Room: as the go to destination within the store, the “Dressing Room” is bigger than a typical high-street changing room; this is a space designed to empower women and allow groups of friends to try out new pieces together in a lounge-like environment. Shoppers are no longer restricted by the boundaries of the physical store, as they have access to the entire Coast collection, including exclusive online pieces via iPads that are integrated into the space.

     

    A timeless retail signature: this concept establishes a timeless retail signature for Coast that is adaptable across different formats. The concept was launched the Metrocentre, Newcastle and will be applied to all stores and concessions both in the UK and internationally over the next 2 years.

  • Lussa Gin packaging

    Lussa Gin packaging

    [/themeone_side_section]Lussa Gin was founded in 2015 by three women from the Isle of Jura, off Scotland’s west coast. The gin is made in Ardlussa, on the north end of Jura, where the terrain is tough and the weather is unforgiving – but that’s where the adventure begins! The botanicals in Lussa Gin are found locally, either foraged from the wilderness or home grown by Lussa’s founders.
    This wilderness and location directly informed the design of the Lussa bottle, from the traditional, hand drawn pen and ink-style illustration of the local Ardlussa hills, to the bronze colour palette inspired by the heather and deer found on the island, and its bespoke tartan ‘drip catcher’.

    The ultra condensed Univers of the Lussa Gin logotype and accompanying lock-up mirrors the slender bottle. We also wanted to highlight the gender of the founders without appearing gimmicky, and achieved this by adopting the device of the distillers’ signatures – more commonly found in whisky labellin
