Originally started as a family business in 1868, Edward re-established the firm in 2010, bringing with him a fresh outlook on design and a drive which has earned the studio more than a few recognizable clients.

Aaron Rose Interview
Aaron Rose has been credited with being somewhat of a pared-back pied-piper of street culture, responsible for providing a platform for street art to sing from in the early 1990s. His gallery, Alleged, helped catapult artists such as Terry Richardson, Barry McGee, Mark Gonzales, Mike Mills and Harmony Korine from underground obscurity into well deserved but previously unlikely worldwide fame. By believing in and championing the artists and their work, through curation, advocacy and his groundbreaking film Beautiful Losers, Aaron Rose turned the art world on its head.
This week we find our way into the studio of Brooklyn-based painter Matt Mignanelli. Using a palette dominated by dark shades, Matt creates texture and pattern with a mix of gloss and matte paints, which, filtered through the light of their environments can create an enhanced interactive experience for the viewer. Thoroughly modern and stikingly urban in style, here, we catch up with Matt as he takes us through his work and studio.

Danielle Top, its founder and editor-in-chief, was kind enough to answer a few questions as the fourth issue of TOP magazine comes out.
Alexandre Stipanovich: Is Danielle Top your real name?
Danielle Top: Yes.
