On show in the studio’s Lower Manhattan showroom a selection of lighting, furniture, ceramics, textiles and jewelry. Last year’s showcase focused on the work of New York-based designers, the 2018 edition features works by 20 international female designers. The studio co-curated the exhibition with kinder MODERN founder Lora Appleton and The Female Design Council, a membership organisation dedicated to supporting women in the design industry.
“Designing Women II is conceived of as a conversation across both time and space. The selected works are intended to foster a conversation about how women have achieved success, blazed trails, and furthered their craft over time,” explain at Egg Collective.
The central hall hosts a large wood table with organic edges by Egg collective, a vibrant naïve pop shelf by emerging American designer Katie Stout and a tapestry which Swedish designer Lilian Holm created in 1945 taking inspiration from modernist architecture.
Another room combines vintage and contemporary design matching an iconic marble table by Cini Boeri (1975), Nanna Ditzel’s yellow ottoman (1956) and a white oak and stone brass credenza by Egg Collective; in the back a head-shaped bookcase by Moroccan designer Nicola L.
A glass and neon chandelier by Rotterdam-based designer Sabine Marcelis shines above a minimal cream sofa by the late master Greta Magnusson Grossman (1949). On show also sculptural marble lights by Kristin Victoria Barron, politically charged sculptures by Bari Ziperstein and giant terracotta candle holders with a matching table by Georgian studio Rooms.
Designing Women II: Masters, Mavericks, Mavens goes on show until 1 une 2018 @ 304 Hudson Street, Manhattan. All photos by Hannah Whitaker.
