Classy Knoll: 1950’s Knoll associates catalogue-
Images from a Knoll catalogue probably from the late 40’s/ early 50’s designed by Herbert Matter. Herbert Matter replaced Alvin Lustig as Knoll’s graphic Designer in 1946 and was responsible for the Knoll logo and font which is still used today. It’s Amazing to think that some of these pieces- Barcelona chair, Womb chair, and Wire chairs are all still in production some 70+ years later!

I had brunch at Fish Shack last Sunday on Granville Street. The lofty space’s interiors have the feel of a casual, modern seafood shack with a large chalkboard menu wall, pallets covering the entire length of the restaurant and nautical elements such as marine rope behind the bar. To add to the charm, seats are upholstered to look like red vintage lifejackets.
The under $10 Benny’s brunch menu was good. With options ranging from Fish & Chips to Dungeness Crab, all covered in a delicious layer of hollandaise sauce that’s perfectly seasoned and not too heavy, I’m definitely coming back for seconds.
