Last week in New York designer Andrew Yes overtook a developing luxury apartment complex and transformed it into a show house and experimental living concept.
The project was realized at The Madison Jackson building - a former school turned residence - in the Lower East Side, where Yes says his goal was to ‘push the boundaries of the typical show house.’ He divided the space into four apartment-exhibition spaces focused around four themes: work, play, nature and future.
Each room was filled with internationally-sourced furnishings, décor and art (by the likes of Thomas Heatherwick and Balmond Studio, amongst others). The result was a new definition of the modern home.
The project was commissioned by BOFFO, who enlisted Yes to make four large-scale installations in collaboration with brands like Focus Lighting. Also on show were Yes’ Fossil Table (made of steel and marble with 400-million-year-old fossils) the Coral Grotto (made of ethically-farmed corals and semi-precious stones), plus the Slime Runner rubber carpet, amongst others.
