Wow! A storm just dumped 8-inches of snow on Brooklyn over night! And we’re supposed to get another 6-8 today. I’m glad I did all my sightseeing over the weekend.
I went to go check out design firm Nendo’s first show in the U.S. Ghost Stories, an installation of their cabbage chairs, originally designed for Issey Miyake’s XXIst Century Man, is on display at the Friedman Benda Gallery in Chelsea through March 28th. I only had my crappy camera with me so the photos aren’t great. But you really need to experience this first hand.
Knowing nothing about the show (the material for the chairs is actually a by-product of Miyake’s manufacturing process) after about 5 minutes my wife turns around and says, “I feel like I’m in an Issey Miyake boutique.” …I thought that was pretty cool.
