Design is nothing if it isn’t collaborative; transcending borders and fostering exchange. New York lighting design duo Ladies & Gentlemen Studio (featured in TLmag 23) team up with young Australian furniture brand SP01 and a few other select players to mount Over / Under – on show till 31 May – during New York Design Week (NYCxDesign). Marking the former’s first foray into interior design, the pop-up concept store features a range of iconic lighting fixtures and installations that complement the latter’s latest Italian-craftsmanship-inspired, yet neo-minimalist, collection of chairs, tables and sofas. The result is a series of ‘staged’ rooms featuring a seamless merging of both practice’s cutting-edge products, not to mention bold geometric rugs developed by Milan-based CC Tapis; crafted in Nepal. Pastel hues juxtapose sharp tones of black and white.

“We looked to Ladies & Gentlemen Studio to design an experience beyond the traditional showroom—adestination where guests can relax into our pieces, which are designed with urban life in mind,” explains Matt Lorrain, Head of Design and Product Development at SP01.

Over / Under: till 31 May
325 W. Broadway
New York

Breathing Heart is an installation by German multimedia artist Johanna Keimeyer that asks visitors to look inside themselves, literally. An inflated structure is matched by the sensorial qualities of light, sound, scent, and rhythm for full scenographic effect. First mounted during Art Basel, the project – captured in film – travels to New York this month.
