fantastic exhibit at nyc’s cooper hewitt, smithsonian design museum. m.
from now until august 21, 2016, the cooper hewitt, smithsonian design museum presents the fifth installment of its design triennial, this year under the theme of ‘beauty’. with a focus on aesthetic innovation, the exhibition features more than 250 works by 63 international designers and teams, and is organized across seven categories — extravagant, intricate, ethereal, transgressive, emergent, elemental, and transformative.
as part of the ‘emergent’ sector — a selection of projects that employ digital systems to generate unexpected forms — jenny sabin studio has conceived the ‘polythread knitted textile pavilion’ specifically for this exhibition in new york.
