A W I N D O W x SHOP Cooper Hewitt
A W I N D O W teamed up with SHOP Cooper Hewitt, part of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, for the occasion of their exhibition “How Posters Work”. Two posters in 3D were created with objects from the museum’s store and these were hosted at Project No.8 in the Ace Hotel and Wanted Design in Brooklyn extending their presence during NYCxDesign in May 2015.
These "posters in 3D" consisted of 2 boxes made out of layers of clear plexiglass in the shape of the Andrew Carnegie Mansion where the objects were encased. When looked from the front the objects looked as if they were floating in one plane (2D) but were really occupying the whole volume of the box/object (3D).
The boxes were designed and constructed in collaboration with Carlos Meza of Blacktable Studio.
A W I N D O W designs, curates and creates custom sculptural design objects for establishments and institutions to extend their presence beyond their physical space. Available for commissions and collaborations.
