At a Pop-Up Featuring Three In-Demand Interior Designers, Almost Everything — Vintage or New — Is For Sale
Last year, the Barcelona and NYC–based lifestyle brand Viso launched during New York Design Week at a raw, three-story industrial space in Tribeca with a series of vignettes featuring its sustainably-minded textiles and its furniture and textile collaboration with friend and interior designer Giancarlo Valle. This year, founders David Vivrido and Francesco Sourigues have returned to the same spot, but with a twist on their original concept — the space now features a trio of set designs by interiors gurus Andre Mellone, Giancarlo Valle, and Michael Bargo, and each one highlights exclusive designs, vintage finds, and personal items that provide context to each designer’s favorite Viso items. We visited the space last week and can confirm it’s one of the coolest things we’ve seen during New York Design
Week Month this year.
Bargo’s installation is subdued black and whites, punctuated by four sculptural Piero de Longhi dining chairs and a Sottsass piece reupholstered in Viso fabric; Mellone’s features a demountable Prouvé dining table framed by an epic abstract painting by contemporary artist Kerstin Bratsch; and Valle’s features lots of low, playful, Hjorth-esque furnishings alongside a few vintage Royere chairs and a low room divider Valle designed himself. Peppered throughout the space are other concepts including a Viso ceramics collaboration with Jessica Hans, a collection of vintage furniture repurposed with Viso fabrics, new housewares by Viso for Matches Fashion and Moda Operandi, and an epic bookmatched burl-wood Irving Rosen bed on loan from Brooklyn vintage gallery Love House, layered with Viso pillows and textiles. Almost everything in the space is for sale, so get there before it’s gone! On view until May 22 from 10AM to 6PM at 62 White Street.
