Patrick Trefz Debuts New Feature Length Film – Idiosyncrasies at Surfilm Festival in San Sebastian Spain

By | delightful design, FOJ, Photography | No Comments

Spain needs a little loving today (if you don’t know what I am referring to, you clearly haven’t been paying enough attention to the World Cup). And, what is a better way to spread some cheer than with some fantastic art?

The World Premiere for Joby Pro Team Member Patrick Trefz’s feature film entitled “Idiosyncracies” took place at the Surfilm Festival in San Sebastian, Spain on June 11th. This “exploration of unique minds in surfing” peers into the lives of surfing masters including; Richard Kenvin, Andrew Kidman, Lance Ebert, Christian Beamish, Tom, Leeann, Frank and Pat Curren, Bill and Josh Mulcoy.

You can see the trailer to the film below…yes, you will want to watch it multiple times.

In addition to the launch of the feature film, Trefz also mounted an art show showcasing his lucid and beautiful images of surfing and surf culture.

And, if  you weren’t feeling the Spanish love yet, these fantastic images of San Sebastian (one of my personal favorite places) are just gorgeous and so envy-worthy.

By | delightful design, FOJ, Friends of Joby, Office | No Comments

Last month the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) which seeks to be a global summit of what’s best and next in design took place in New York City. Capping off the event of fabulous and innovative design was the ICFF Editors Award. This year the ICFF proclaimed panel of the “hippest and most in-the-know U.S. and international editors” included;  Arlene Hirst, Anniina Koivu of Abitare, Jessica Johnson of Azure, Stefano Casciani of Domus, Sam Grawe of Dwell, Gilda Bojardi of Interni, Chantal Hamaide of Intramuros, Susan S. Szenasy of Metropolis, Benjamin Kempton of Wallpaper*.

We were thrilled to see some of our closest friends in the design community take home top honors. It doesn’t hurt that two of them in particular have been integral to making our new office space so amazing. Last year, the brains and skill behind our great white table; Council Design, took home top prize for furniture design. This year, Joby friend and designer of the wonderful orange lights that illuminate our space, Peter Stathis won for the lighting category.

Congrats!
