Editor’s Miscellany: Convenient Conjunction

September 15, 2011

I posted here four weeks ago about the winners of this year’s 5 Under 40 awards. Well, as it happens, this week sees a fortuitous coincidence in that regard.

First, the much-anticipated 5 Under 40 awards party is TONIGHT (Thursday, September 15, 2011) from 6:30–9:30 p.m., at the Galleria at 333 Stuart Street in Boston. (For you Boston style intimates, that’s the tall glass atrium near Park Square, bounded on its four corners by Davio’s, Landry & Arcari, Montage, and Marcoz Antiques.)

Please join us for drinks, small plates, a charity auction of rugs designed by this year’s honorees, and lots of fun hobnobbing with the cream of New England’s design community. Advance $35 tickets are available until noon at (800) 609-5154, ext. 703. After noon, tickets will be $45 at the door, cash only.

Second, this week–yesterday, to be precise–saw the opening of Oficio, a brand-new project by one of our 5 Under 40 winners for 2011, Nima Yadollahpour of ONY Architecture.

Billed as “Boston’s first boutique shared office space,†Oficio is located on the third floor at 30 Newbury Street in Boston. The concept, developed by Yadollahpour and co-founder Charlie Weisman, is to offer a stylish, efficient, fully equipped alternative for remote workers torn between the isolation of laboring at home and the chaos of a more public wi-fi hotspot like Starbucks.

The new space’s clean, light-filled loft aesthetic promises, to my eye, a pleasant atmosphere in which to undertake your chosen toil. To find out more, visit www.myoficio.com.

And please do drop by tonight to celebrate Nima and our other four equally talented honorees: Debra Folz, Jinhee Park, Rachel Reider, and Kelly Smith.
