May 6, 2021 - Kristine Hansen

You may not be able to eat in Gwyneth Paltrow’s dining room or hang on Oprah's Montecito patio, but with more A-list decorators branching into restaurant interior design, you can tap into the style of the stars. Many designers best known for the celebrity projects in their portfolios have recently expanded to projects at eateries around the world. It’s an opportunity to showcase to a wider audience their prowess in pattern mixing, furniture and art sourcing, and creating a mood where you want to linger long after the final course. Because restaurants, of course, are about more than just design. These spaces also serve as places to gather for cocktails or enjoy delicious food. Below, we gather some examples of spaces where you can indulge in style.

Jane Manus: Florida Weekly

August 12, 2020

By Nancy Stetson

When Jane Manus can't sleep, she puts together shapes in various combinations in her head: straight lines, squares, rectangles. Never circles. Never anything with curves. The West Palm Beach sculptor is attracted to geometric shapes and angles and strong lines that may jut out straight or bend sharply. And her work reflects that.

“I don’t do circles,” she says. “I don’t have anything against them. It’s just not me.”

When she first began creating her abstract sculpture, she originally worked in steel.

“Over the years, I found my own signature,” she says. “When people look at the work, or have seen a number of my sculptures, they can tell a piece of mine from someone else’s.

“I was working with these different pieces of metal and I was able to do what I wanted to do with them, to express what how I wanted the works to look with these materials. The more I worked with them, there seemed to be more shapes I could create.”

Even after almost 45 years of being a professional artist, she hasn’t run out of different ways to juxtapose these elements.

Jane Manus News: Jane Manus Installation at the Bristol, Palm Beach, August  5, 2019

Jane Manus Installation at the Bristol, Palm Beach

August 5, 2019

SPONDER GALLERY is pleased to announce the installation of a monumental sculpture by Jane Manus at The Bristol, Palm Beach’s most expensive luxury condominium. The namesake work stands 23 feet tall, and weighs over 1,000 lbs. 

Jane Manus has been continuously developing her oeuvre of forceful geometric sculptures since the 1970s, when as a young artist at the Art Institute of Boston she learned to weld metal into sculpture, an experience Manus describes as a breakthrough in her artistic career. Manus’ work has indeed evolved, and today she works exclusively in aluminum. Her vibrant sculptures seamlessly integrate disparate elements of geometry, thereby truly transforming the spaces that they inhabit. Dynamic shapes and massive forms penetrate the viewer’s space, and seem to move and change in appearance due to their extreme three-dimensionality. Abstract though they are, Manus’ sculptures also retain an unyielding expressive character that gives each work a life and spirit of its own. Jane Manus was born in New York in 1951, and is based in West Palm Beach, Florida. Her work is found in many important collections, including The Harn Museum of Art, Gainesville, FL; The Lincoln Center/List Collection, New York; the Georgia Museum of Art; Syracuse University; Herbert F Johnson Museum at Cornell University, NY; Cornell Museum of Art, Winter Park, FL.

 The Bristol is a 610,000 square-foot luxury condominium in the heart of West Palm Beach, Florida. The 25-story building is located on the Intracoastal Waterway overlooking Palm Beach Island, and includes 67 units, 12 guest suites, two parking levels, and several amenity areas. Units range from $7 to $14 million, although prices have gone higher for penthouse levels. Construction began three years ago on the site of the former Chapel-by-the-Lake.

Kips Bay Showhouse: Palm Beach Edition

January 26, 2019

January 26 - February 20, 2019 | 6215 South Flagler, West Palm Beach, FL

Sponder Gallery participated in the 2019 edition of the Kips Bay Showhouse in West Palm Beach, Florida. Works by Dan Christensen, Jane Manus, Donald Martiny, Ernest Trova and Larry Zox are in view in spaces designed by Leanne Yarn, Andres Paradelo and Amy Meier.

Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home and a Palm Beach residence into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This all began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world. The Show House receives as many as 15,000 guests annually from across the nation. Since its inception, the Show House has raised over $21,000,000 for Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, which currently reaches over 10,000 young people at nine locations throughout the Bronx. Today, the club is proudly one of the most prominent and responsive youth development agencies in New York City and a “flagship” of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
