The Armory Show: Sustainable Furniture As Art

2007-armory-show.jpg

The Armory Show, "the international fair of new art," is coming to New York City next week from Friday, February 23rd to Monday, February 26th, and our pals at Vivavi are going to be lending a hand. In addition to sponsoring the show, they've partnered with ARTFORUM magazine to design and furnish the ARTFORUM public lounge, which will showcase some of our favorite sustainable designers. Featured in the lounge will be work of Brave Space, Michael Iannone, J. Persing and Material Furniture (all pictured above), as well as PIE (Project Import Export), Rhubarb Decor and Acronym Designs; while each designer has earned recognition for their commitment to sustainability, their presence at the Armory Show is intended to extend the notion of furniture as art, which is an interesting and important idea that isn't always high on the list of sustainability enthusiasts. We hope the collaboration will continue to foster the artistic community’s interest in contemporary, eco-friendly living, which has the potential to bring the some of the ideas of sustainability and sustainable living to a new and potentially influential group. The event, which will be held on Pier 94 in Manhattan, will also serve as the introduction to a new a new sustainable furniture line by Angus Goble, and is expected to draw over 50,000 visitors. Details about the Armory Show are available here, including info on tickets and other exhibitors at the show. ::The Armory Show
