New York report
On a mission
We are back after a well coordinated visit to New York to establish a good connection with the design venues and institutions.
Just a little recap:
Presentation of a new label in New Museum. Drinking Sake wine on the rooftop while nodding our heads to Madlib, Biggy, De La, etc. Seeing Stefan Sagmeister in his natural habitat. Opening at the Ventura New York at the Wanted venue. Opening at the Moooi store. Discovering how amazingly efficient Uber functions in a Metropolis. Attending the Dwell party. Driving deep into Brooklyn for the best Pizza place late at night. Standing in a small shop with Björk in front of us at the counter. Meeting with the organisation of the Collected fair. Meeting with the founder of Site Unseen. Visiting Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Chamber Gallery, Future Perfect Gallery, Matter Gallery (great cocktails), Colony Gallery (yoga lessons between design objects). Dancing in a club to Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj because no one will ever find out about it anyway. Being amazed by how they manage to put avocado in every dish we had. Meeting up with a few of our relations for a heads up. Catch an exhibition on James Turrell at Pace gallery while we where at it. Watching Marcel Wanders and Karim Rashid (and some half naked girls) dance on a bar at the Architonic party. Chasing a drunk club visitor down the street for disrespectful behaviour. Visiting the exhibition by Studio Job at MAD Museum. Meeting the curatorial staff at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum. You know… just the regular stuff…
So here is a little random visual diary:
