"From the Spoon to the City": Objects by Architects from LACMA's Collection

Architect Elena Manferdini recently held a panel discussion at the LACMA talking about her Cherry Blossom jacket and skirt (2006) and the Ricami stool (2009):

According to LACMA's official blog, "these objects clearly demonstrate how [Manferdini] uses the same design concept and process to produce two different ojbects."

New digital technologies allow for the parallels between architecture and design. For her pieces, Manferdini used a flat surface (stretch fabric for the garment and powder-coated steel for the stool) and laser-cut them digitally to create similar design patterns.
