From the Desk of… is a window into the world and workspace of some of ACL’s most stylish friends.
I remember not knowing what to expect the first time I met Richard Chai. Going into the meeting I had no reason to think anything bad, but with designers you never know. That was way back in 2005, and while I sit here now I can’t think of a nicer designer, let alone person than Richard. Soft spoken and and almost shy, Richard was one of the first people I asked for my From the Desk of… series. Crickets. Eventually with a little help from Molly at KCD, Richard agreed to let ACL into his office.
If you are thinking that no one’s workspace is ever this clean, I can assure you that Richard’s studio is always very tidy. Everything in its place, all white binders neatly arranged with printed labels marking the contents. I liken it to places like Calvin Klein where there is always an abundance of beautiful orchids and the walls are painted white every Friday without fail. Take a moment and peek into Richard’s neat and creative space. The Richard Chai collection is available at Odin.
