In an exhibition in New York recently, PIN-UP Magazine hosted a contest that challenged designers and celebrities to come up with a new take on the essential nightstand. Eleven particpants were given free range to dream up a new creation. These imaginative creations were displayed for ten days at Phillips de Pury & Company before being auctioned off.
1 – A single ten-foot-long gold zipper reveals a dark pink velvet interior by Aranda/Lasch.
2 – Jim Drain used cedar, paint and steel in his Mondrian-inspired night stand.
3 – Shawn Maximo’s nightstand was conceived as “mini-convenience store beside the bed”.
4 – Situ Studio used over 200 pounds of cement (both Rapid Set and Quickcrete) to create their quirky stand.
