Showcasing a unique collaboration between Australian design firm SP01 and Brooklyn-based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio (L&G Studio), the Over / Under concept installation is now on view in Manhattan. The popup destination will serve as a meeting hub during NYCxDesign—a three-week, citywide design event in New York—as it highlights the Italian-made indoor and outdoor furniture collections from SP01 ornamented with never-seen-before lighting and design pieces from L&G Studio.
“We looked to L&G Studio to design an experience beyond the traditional showroom—a destination where guests can relax into our pieces, which are designed with urban life in mind,” says Matt Lorrain, head of design and product development at SP01. “We’re thrilled to expand our growing presence in the U.S. during such an important international design event.”
SP01’s minimal furniture designs are juxtaposed by L&G Studio’s ethereal lighting and sculpture, creating abstracted contrasting vignettes.
“With this project, we’ve expanded our creative vision beyond individual objects and into the entire experience,” said Jean Lee, co-founder, L&G Studio. “Over / Under showcases a convergence of the two brands as complementary opposites — in many ways related and in many ways unique.”
On view through May 31, Over / Under is located on the ground floor of 325 West Broadway in SoHo.
