If you’re in The Big Apple tonight (no, not Cincinnati, or Tucson, the other one, New York), it sounds like the place for a designer-y person to be is at the Surface Magazine discussion and dinner party. The talking part is moderated by the magazine’s design director, Laetitia Wolff, and is between Michael Gabellini, who designed the top of the Rockefeller Center, and fashion designer Yeohlee Teng. They’ll also have some industry heavies surrounding them, including the Guggenheim’s curator, Nancy Spector, and Edward Leida at Fairchild. The whole thing goes down starting at 6:30 tonight in the screening room of the Tribeca Grand. Here’s the whole write-up:
Surface Magazine presents a conversation between Michael Gabellini and Yeohlee Teng who will compare their architectural and fashion creative process by discussing topics such as sources of inspiration, innovative approaches to materials research, and the completed product within their disciplines.
Following the talks, an intimate five-course dinner party will be held for a select group of twenty to meet, greet and further elaborate on the innovative discussion. The dinner parties will take place at the Tribeca Grand featuring culinary delights from Chef Darrell Raymond with paired champagnes from Veuve Clicquot.
If you happen to attend, or even better, are part of that intimate twenty, and want to drop us a line about how swanky and cool this was, we’d love to hear all about it. Hopefully it’ll be better than that advertising sit-down series with Clow and Bogusky (we didn’t want to dedicate a whole rant-filled post about this, so, instead, we’ll just ruin this one by inserting it here).
