ON THE SCENE: LCDQ Legends 2019

May 14, 2019 by arteriors

When it came to selecting a partner for LCDQ’s annual Legends event, our Instagram crush and all-around wunderkind Dan Mazzarini was at the top of our list. As the Principal of BHDM Design, Dan takes the unique approach of building a narrative around each design project. When tasked with choosing an ‘Icon of Design’ to spotlight, Dan was immediately drawn to Academy Award-winning Set Designer Cedric Gibbons, undoubtedly driven by the opportunity to build a theatrical story around the collaboration.RENDERING

From 1924 to 1956, Cedric Gibbons was the creative force behind MGM, contributing to over 1,500 films. Throughout his career, Gibbons won an unparalleled 11 Oscars, with 29 total nominations for his brilliant Art Direction. A true icon of the golden age of cinema, his imaginative set design influenced creatives across the globe.
