A Hawaiian Modern Party: Vladimir Ossipoff Opening Photos

We’re home safe on non-volcanic soil after our jaunt to Honolulu for the opening of the Vladimir Ossipoff exhibition “Hawaiian Modern.” Yesterday we gave you the party report and today, we have the Ossi-party photos.

Metropolis’ Paul Makovsky with Ossipoff’s granddaughter Keira Alexandra. You heard our fascinating design connection with Alexandra, here’s another one: Metropolis ran a story on Alexandra’s amazing NYC house back in 1998.

Valerie Ossipoff, the architect’s daughter.

Guest curator, designer and overall Big Kahuna Dean Sakamoto.

Raul Barreneche, author of a beautiful book about tropical modern architecture, aptly named Tropical Modern, and Susan Sayre Batton, deputy director of the Honolulu Academy of Art.

Honolulu Academy of Art director Stephen Little (who lives in a killer Ossipoff house) greeting guests.

Sakamoto’s right-hand woman, designer and exhibition assistant Margo Angelopoulos.

Entertainment, Hawaiian style, and Ossipoff’s favorite band.
