29Rooms Lounge With Refinery29, 2017

After our success in 2016 curating the lounge furniture for Refinery29’s 29Rooms pop-up, we were asked to repeat the exercise, only bigger and better — five suites of furniture to arrange at various points throughout the mega-Instagrammable Williamsburg funhouse. We asked five Brooklyn-based studios to each create a set of benches, chairs, and tables that might reflect Refinery29’s theme of “Turn It Into Art”— colorful, fishing cage–inspired pieces by Asa Pingree; pink, turned-wood benches by Pat Kim; upcycled Home Depot chaises by The Principals; studio scraps–turned–coffee tables by Vonnegut / Kraft; and pieces in carved wood, stone, and glass by Chen Chen & Kai Williams.
