This save-the-date for the Storefront For Art and Architecture's 25th Anniversary Benefit recently made its way into our office. The event, honoring architect (and Storefront founder) Kyong Park, and artist Shirin Neshat, will be held this April in the Diane von Furstenberg Studio, a brand-new space tucked inside a landmarked meatpacking building just steps away from the High Line.
One of the more striking features of the Work Architecture Company-designed DVF Studio is a diamond-shaped skylight/conference room called the Jewel. Natural light filters into the building through the glass-ensconced and crystal-studded "stairdelier," a chandelier/staircase that may give the spiraling Apple store staircase (down the block) a run for its money as the neighborhood's most visually striking way to travel between floors.
The benefit is coming up April 29th. Check out Storefront's Web site for more information.
