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 partners to mount Over / Under – on show till 31 May – during New York Design Week (NYCxDesign). Marking Ladies & Gentlemen Studio‘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 cutting-edge products from both practices, not to mention bold geometric rugs developed by Milan-based CC Tapis and 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
