This Minute at Runco
By Jennifer Davis
Runco's dedication to developing the finest home theater solutions doesn't stop at quality and performance. We spend extensive time researching the latest trends in architecture and design, as well as the contributions of avant-garde designers and luxury retailers to develop products that match the eclectic and custom style of our customers. It is through this process that we developed Runco's Copenhagen™ industrial design, which features beautiful curves and a sleek, elegant chassis that is a nod to some of the most impressive modern and traditional architecture developed today.
An example of this unique and curvaceous architecture can be seen with One Jackson Square in Manhattan New York. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates transformed this former surface parking lot into an AIA Honor Award-winning building that Kelly Minner of ArchDaily.com best describes as, "undulating bands of glass” that create a “ribbon-like series of convexities and concavities along the street wall."
One Jackson Square's modern and sustainable architecture was also featured in a number of publications including the New York Times, Modern Luxury, Avenue Magazine, Greenopia, The Architects Newspaper, Robb Report, The New York Post, Elite Traveler, and many others. Every single one of the building's 35 residences needs a Signature Cinema SC-50d, the 3Dimension D-73d, or a QuantumColor Q-1500d in Runco’s new Copenhagen industrial design that mirrors the wave-like curves of this architectural masterpiece (click the “Vision” or “Residences: Photo Gallery” links to see more pictures).
Once you look for curves in architecture and design you start to see them everywhere. This is a photo I took at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The Getty Center sits on a hilltop in the Santa Monica Mountains and architect Richard Meier took his inspirations from the surrounding view of the Pacific Ocean, the nearby San Gabriel Mountains and the vast street-grid of the city to highlight both nature and culture in his design of the complex.
As we continue to research the most artistic and compelling designs for our products, we encourage you to keep an eye out in your own community for stunning examples of modern and traditional designs that inspire you and to send us your comments on how we can continue to deliver quality solutions that are geared to your custom home theater needs.
