Design Miami's Deconstructed Tent
Though Design Miami wrapped up a month ago, Moorhead & Moorhead's installation begs to be revisited. In a take on a standard event tent, brothers Granger and Robert Moorhead manipulated the exterior, forming a latticed skin that makes for a remarkable play of light and shadow. Says Granger Moorhead, "We first wanted to embrace the existing form and structure of a typical tent, while manipulating or deconstructing its surface." Though the tent's shell is quite spectacular, the Konstantin Grcic-designed seating installation is also not to be missed. Granger chatted with us about the project, the design process, and what is was like to work with Grcic.
