Celebrates the Future of Colorado Modern Design
During the month of October, Boulder will be alive with Month of Modern 2015 (MoM), monthofmodern.com. On the heels of a successful inaugural year in 2014, this year—presented by Jennifer Egbert Modern Luxury Real Estate—will once again lead the way in modern architecture, interiors, furnishings, art and culture, with an emphasis on sustainability, innovation and the evolution of design in Colorado.
With so many people moving to the region from all corners of the world, the time is ripe to showcase the incredible design talent we have in our state. MoM15 will integrate thought-provoking events, curated exhibitions and a Wrap Party/Award Ceremony. We want to celebrate the businesses, organizations and individuals who elevate industry standards and drive the modern movement forward.
Oct. 6: MoM15 Launch—Ignite x MoM15: Imagine a Great City, Presented by Knoll
MoM15 kicks off with an evening of enlightening talks with a twist. Ignite and Month of Modern are partnering up to “Imagine a Great City.” 30 years ago Denver Mayor Pena was elected on a platform to “Imagine a Great City” of Denver. Today, it stands as an example of what happens when you dream big.
Moderator Rick Epstein, AIA of Studio Completiva is posing this question to a hand-selected group of 10 presenters who each have 5 minutes and 20 slides to reveal their presentation on what would make Boulder a “Great City.”
As Boulder matures from a mining outpost to a sleepy college town to a vibrant modern small city, we are poised to redefine greatness in the built environment. Learning from our peers up the HOV lane in Denver, as well as from the most innovative cities in the world, we can continue to aspire to greatness.
Oct. 14: Responsible Innovation presented by Audi Boulder
With the pace of innovation today, what role does technology play in the future of design? Week 2 of MoM15 includes a panel discussion about responsible innovation. In a culture of planned obsolescence, what is our responsibility to improve upon ideas rather than always looking at the newest shiny object. Some of Colorado’s brightest design minds will talk about responsible innovation including car technology, building practices, home automation and furniture design.
Oct. 20: The Colors of 2016 and Beyond presented by Sherwin Williams
It’s time to unfurl a brand new fan of colors for 2016 with Sherwin Williams. And to add a little Colorado to the mix, we’re asking 6 design teams to pick the color they feel best represents the future of Boulder. Colors will be voted on throughout the month and the winner will be presented at The Wrap party.
Oct. 29: MoM15 Wrap + Awards presented by Porcelanosa & Caliber Home Loans
The Wrap party is truly an unforgettable night of design, local cuisine, craft cocktails and networking at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. Bringing together the Front Range design community, we celebrate the region’s most acclaimed names in modern and contemporary design.<
