Hunker Featured on “Convo By Design” Podcast


Season 5 Episode 9: 'Always On' Design Branding with Hunker & Friends

Modernism Week 2018 has come and gone. While I am a little sad to see it end, it is another opportunity to reflect on something truly amazing in the world of architecture and design. Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, the whole Coachella Valley has seen a phenomenal resurgence and has emerged from decades of decay as a beautiful oasis of arts and culture. And Modernism Week is a wonderful example of how art forms like architecture, design and public art can not just transform a city, but guide it back to its remarkable and glorious past.

This conversation was led by Eve Epstein, VP of Content at Hunker, and features Beatrice Fischel-Bock, CEO Co-Founder of Hutch, Angie Myung, Co-Founder and Creative Director at Poketo and Gareth Payne, Head of Design Research Studio. They are gathered at a home called “Hidden Frey”, a re-imagined space that is known better to the architecture community as the “Hollingsworth Tennis Estate” created by architect Albert Frey in 1966. In touring this Palm Springs estate, you will find some very recognizable Albert Frey details that include an elevated pool, rolled roof and cantilevered carport. The home and tennis court are sunken on the property making it invisible from the street and virtual unknown in the neighborhood. There is a good reason for the sunken space that started with a neighborly dispute and ended with a truly fun, functional an very quirky Palm Springs space. We will be getting more into architect Albert Frey in the future, and there are images of the home, find us on Instagram to check those out. But for now, here is a conversation about the everyday influence of architecture, design and decor in our lives. As Eve will explain, the accessibility we provide in our daily lives to brands through social media has led to new ways of furthering the conversation.
