Ian Schrager: Design
By

Rating
Known for being an owner of the mythical Studio 54, as well as a creator of the "boutique" hotel, Ian Schrager has done much more than create, design, curate, and manage hotels, restaurants, clubs, residential buildings, and various real estate developments throughout the world: he has challenged and redefined the idea of luxury and glamour. These spaces not only become known as celebrations in design and concept, but also as destinations for evening social spaces and fabulous parties. Ian Schrager: Design is not only a survey of the beautiful and luxurious spaces and places that Ian Schrager and his various collaborators have transformed, but also showcases the fabulous parties that have been held there. This gorgeous full-color volume presents both archival and new photography throughout Schrager's career, including hotels such as the Morgans, Paramount, Delano, Mondrian, and the famed Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City that he worked on with the painter Julian Schnabel; residential properties including 40 Bond Street and 50 Gramercy Park North; and the legendary club Studio 54. This volume celebrates Schrager as one of the biggest design visionaries in the world of design. With over 250 photographs and texts from the most important designers of our generation-including Philippe Starck, John Pawson, and Jacques Herzog, all who also happened to have designed for Schrager-Ian Schrager: Design reveals some of the highest and most successful expressions of environmental curation to date, and will have an enduring impact on entrepreneurs, interior designers, industrial designers, and cultural communities alike.

About the Author

Ian Schrager is an American entrepreneur, hotelier and real estate developer who originally gained fame as co-owner and co-founder of Studio 54. In 2005, Schrager sold Morgans Hotel Group, a company he founded, to create Ian Schrager Company which owns, develops, and manages hotels, residential, and mixed-use projects. Since then, he has collaborated to transform the fabled Gramercy Park Hotel in NYC. Schrager has also created two groundbreaking residential properties: 40 Bond and 50 Gramercy Park North. With 50 Gramercy Park North, Schrager introduced the idea of "effortless living". The project, designed by John Pawson, offered all the benefits of owning a home, the services of a 5-Star hotel, plus the concept of "executive lifestyle management" that provides a completely staffed household without the hassles and inconveniences of ownership. Philippe Starck is a French product designer and interior designer. John Pawson is a British architect known for his minimalist aesthetic. An exhibition of Pawson's work was held at the Design Museum in London in September 2010 Jacques Herzog is one of the main partners of the Swiss-based architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron.
