Music By Design

Last night the Red Bull Music Academy opened the doors of their new home in New York to a diverse crowd ranging from skateboard toting music lovers to architect Steven Holl. As if the allure of 38,000 square feet of state-of the art digs by Jeffrey Inaba and INABA wasn’t enough, Kairos, an exhibition of NY-based artists curated by Ken Farmer of Nuit Blanche was displayed throughout the space. Housing a lecture room, performance lounge, ‘living’ room and studios-a-plenty, the four-floor Chelsea location was recently completed, just in time for the Academy’s New York arrival.

Phloem Studio's Peninsula Chair

Not long ago we took a look at deft joinery and fine form of the Laura desk by Portland, Oregon's Phloem Studio. Today, we've got an exclusive look (and a great video by Alex Olavarria of Quimby TV) of the firm's newest creation: the Peninsula chair. Wood, metal, and leather, the sling chair was inspired by a Jerry Johnson sling chair from 1964. Ben Klebba, honcho at Phloem, paired up with leather worker and studiomate Matt Pierce of Wood & Faulk on the sling. All told, the Peninsula has an appealing materiality. Just imagine how that leather will age and mellow into your favorite seat in the house. Keep an eye out for Phloem at ICFF this May. They'll be debuting the Peninsula chair at booth #1370.
