Sure, you like to sit. Who doesn’t? But are you prepared for…SITTING IN THE FUTURE?! If you’re in New York between now and next week, you should start doing some research by popping into the Phillips de Pury gallery in Chelsea to check out the new furniture designed by top dog architecturist, Zaha Hadid. DesignWS has a batch of info about the gallery’s showing:

These limited edition works will be produced exclusively for the show by the British-based company, Established & Sons and each piece will be made in Britain and feature the innovative use of specific materials which is true to the Established & Sons philosophy of production. ‘Seamless is a dialogue of geometry and materiality that invites us to totally re-invent space. These unique furniture pieces are a direct evolution of our architectural language: soft meets sharp, combining repetition and variation, whilst balancing the smooth transition between otherwise disparate elements of furniture.’

Also, speaking of Hadid, if you get a chance to grab a copy of the December issue of W magazine, there’s a great feature story about her and her office. We don’t remember what page it’s on exactly, but we remember that it’s around page 423, just after the seven hundred and ninth obnoxious fashion or perfume ad that doesn’t make any sense.
