Photo of the Week: Lilliputian Furniture
The subject of this Photo of the Week caught our eye because of its playful and creative interpretation of one of the park’s iconic design features.
Photographer and Lego enthusiast Chris Christian created this Lilliputian version of one of the rolling lounge chairs from the High Line’s Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck. During a recent visit to New York earlier this season, he snapped this photo of his creation side-by-side with the real thing. This particular model was the 249th in his 2013 “A Lego a Day” project.
Just like the mini-model Chris created, the High Line’s lounge chairs are mobile. Their steel wheels were specially outfitted to safely move along the historic rails, so you can roll up next to a friend for a shared lunch or retreat from the group for some solo sunbathing. (It may be too chilly to sunbathe at this time of year, but it’s still a great place to take in views of stunning sunsets over the Hudson River.)
