To celebrate ICFF, we were invited to dream up an homage to Spanish design by Design Week NY in collaboration with the uber-hip, chic-centric W Hotel Union Square, and Spanish magazine “Interiors”. Our concept was for a fantasia on one of Spain’s truly iconic designs – the fan. Our piece unfurled through the hotel’s Park Avenue living room and was visible to everyone from both inside and outside the hotel. FANtastico was inspired by some of the greatest pieces of Spanish furniture design and turned them into sublime patterns around the fan’s wooden structure; pieces of furniture made from paper that amplified the space and transformed the hotel’s lobby into an ephemeral illusion.
