Bradford Shellhammer has posted a set great photos (taken by Michael Devito) of December’s opening of the Parsons Illustration/Design Within Reach Bellini Chair collaboration at DWR’s space in the Meatpacking District. There are some fantastic shots of both the event and the re-imagined chairs.
Re-Imagining the Chair
Wednesday, December 12, 7-9pm
DWR West 14th Studio
408 West 14th Street
New York, NY 10014
Just in case you’ve forgotten what all the excitement is about:
Parson’s design students deserve a sitting ovation!
Once again, Parsons’ students have raised the bar with their well-tapped imaginations and fearless style. Incorporating materials of their choosing, students from Parsons’ Illustration department will exhibit their own inspired interpretations of the simple yet virtuous Bellini Chair by Heller. Using the Bellini as a blank canvas, students started with an idea on paper and finished the project fabricating a full-scale prototype. The students will join us for a reception at the West 14th Studio to share with you the fruits of their labor.
The “re-imagined” chairs will be critiqued by an esteemed panel of judges, including Alan Heller of Heller and floor covering designer Sandy Chilewich. Chairs will be exhibited in Studio through the month of January. Refreshments will be served!
Don’t miss this exciting event! Reception is open to all. Hope to see you there!
