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.
