Powering through logistical challenges, and trying to avoid construction crews at all costs, we installed a camera on site at Phase II of the tech office headquarters in midtown to capture the organized chaos! We missed the first few weeks as the painting of the ceiling could have done some serious damage to our camera. But once that hurdle was cleared, and with the help of some industrial grade adhesive, the action cam was up and running. The video here was shot over the course of 3 weeks and serves as a pilot for the final sequence editing. Stay tuned for more.
For its roundup of 2015’s best summer installations, Wallpaper Magazine surveyed temporary art installations from around the world. We were quite honored that our latest collaboration with K&Co for Manhattan Park’s refreshed pool club was included in this roundup. The summer pop up for this rental community on Roosevelt Island includes art by HOT TEA, colorful furniture, oversized sunbrellas, and is a whimsical intervention for the aging pool club, painting over the cracked concrete deck and attracting new visitors throughout the summer season.
The feature is called “The great outdoors: this summer’s most exhilarating installations” and includes work by Anish Kapoor, Janet Echelman, Santiago Calatrava, and SelgasCano. The pool has attracted quite a lot of press, giving Manhattan Park a big boost in presence, and overall the art, the artist and the design team have had a great reception throughout local and global design outlets.
