Design Notes: Superlight’s New Weight
A semester-long collaboration between Parsons the New School for Design, Emeco and DWR will culminate with the unveiling of reimagined Frank Gehry Superlight chairs at a Chelsea Studio reception. For the second year in a row, Parsons Illustration students were challenged to redesign a chair (this year was Gehry’s 6.5 lbs. design). Designs will include a chair turned into a disco ball, a chair sprouting long locks of hair and the one above by Paul Kim, which turns Gehryâ€™s design into a comic book tale. You are invited to discuss the results with Parsons Illustration chair Steven Guarnaccia, Emecoâ€™s Dan Fogelson and the student-creators themselves. Snacks and wine will be served. Wednesday, December 10, 7-9pm at the Chelsea Studio.
