Inside the Armory Show with Bade Stageberg Cox

Brooklyn-based architecture firm Bade Stageberg Cox made their second presentation at the 2013 Armory contemporary art fair earlier this month, using a metaphor for New York City to design the show's staging and circulation. Along with big ticket canvases and cutting-edge media installations, showgoers were also treated to BSC's simple yet rigorous plywood furniture throughout Pier 94.
Like New York City, the fair is organized as a grid of blocks, punctuated by open spaces that provide places of social interaction. Also meant to combat "fair fatigue," Bade Stageberg Cox's L x W x D benches, extraordinarily simple in geometry, are "activated" only once they are populated by people sitting, lounging, or reclining on them.
