Now that the craziness of NYCxDesign has died down, New Yorkers and visitors alike are able to spend less time party hopping from gallery to gallery and more time revisiting some of their favorite shows that are still on view. One such show is designer Jasper Morrison's first solo gallery exhibition in North America, Corks, which is still on view at Kasmin until June 28.
The exhibition features Morrison's first complete series of furniture made from cork, which is a step in a different, more organic, direction than his usual methods of industrial production. Set within a domestic setting at Kasmin, the collection includes a chaise longue, chairs, stools, bookshelves, and a fireplace.
The particular variety of cork used by Morrison to create these pieces actually comes from unselected wine bottle corks, some still visible in their original shape throughout the collection.
Morrison's designs have stood the test of time in the home, office and even in public spaces, thanks to their stripped down forms, durable materials and strong, yet unassuming presence. While the pieces in Corks still maintain a simple, refined form factor, they definitely have a bolder feel to them based on the material alone. If you're a fan of Morrison's work and want to see a different take on his more classic designs, we recommend paying this exhibition a visit.
Visit Kasmin's 297 Tenth Avenue space in NYC to view Corks until June 28, 2019.
