Real Issue Survey: How Do You Thank Your Customers? | LBM Journal
There’s no question that LBM dealers appreciate their customers—the question is, what’s the best way to express that appreciation? Is it best to say thanks via pricing or rebates, services or other perks, or a simple thank you for your business? This month’s very brief Real Issue Survey asks you to share how you and your company thank customers for their business. The results will be shared in the May issue of LBM Journal—both in print and online. At the end of the survey, you’ll have the opportunity to share a business challenge or question that you’re wrestling with. If your suggestion is chosen for a future Real Issues Survey, you’ll receive a Milwaukee M12 Drill/Driver Kit. To be notified of future surveys via email, click here.

Zaha Hadid: A Look Back at the Architect's Product Designs
Though she was primarily known as an architect, Dame Zaha Hadid was also an accomplished product designer, lending her sculptural aesthetic to objects ranging from furniture and fixtures to jewelry and shoes. We take a look back at some of Hadid’s contributions to the product world. B&B Italia: Moon System (2007) Boomerang-shaped curves form the seat and backrest of this sofa, meant to look as if both were carved out of a single block of material. Hadid cleverly devised an integrated crescent-shaped pouf that pulls out from the front indentation of the sofa.

The pieces are hand-lacquered in white or black. Serralunga Valli&Valli: ZH Duemilacinque (2008) Hadi...
