SCALE presented by Cool Hunting, Architizer and Dwell
A curated collection of objects that explore the relationship between architecture and furniture, at the scale of a chair.
Online tastemakers Cool Hunting and Architizer join forces with Dwell magazine to curate a collection of objects that explore the relationship between architecture and furniture. The pieces speak to a new generation of architects who are testing radical ideas about materiality, computation, and fabrication — all at the scale of a chair. Featuring furniture, objects and prototypes by Snarkitecture, Drura Parrish, Jonah Takagi, Patrick Gavin, Seth Alec Keller, Thaddeus Wolfe, Bec Brittain, Studio Dror and more.
Architecture is seldom just about walls, floors and ceilings — it’s also about the pieces that fill those spaces and define how they are used. The collection will be on display at the The Standard, East Village as part of the Noho Design District. The collected pieces, on view from May 18th to 21st, speak to a young generation of architects who are testing radical ideas about materiality, computation, and fabrication—all at the scale of the chair.
