sofa, so good Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijing, the Dutch duo behind Scholten & Baijings, launches the ColourForm sofa group for Herman Miller—the studio’s first collaboration with the maker. The perfectly proportioned seats, designed for working or lounging, are available in various iterations: two- and three-seat sofas (with or without arms), a club chair, an ottoman, a bench, a sectional, and a tête-à-tête. “When designing, we always create options because a product is produced and reproduced many times,” Scholten says. “We wanted to give a unique feeling to each one.” One of a kind, indeed—and comfy, too. space 321

LAURENT ROTTET

the world of rottet Lauren Rottet has designed many a NeoCon showroom in her day, but this year marks the first time she’s done so for her own brand. The Interior Design Hall of Fame member’s namesake space on the third floor is imbued with her trademark high-modernist elegance. Think ethereal white walls and flooring, uber-crisp lines, and a sublime sculpting of light—all of which combine to show off pieces to best effect. And as for the Lauren Rottet Collection itself, the items—tables, consoles, seating, and accessories—are inspired by such influences as art and fashion. Don’t miss the lean Float series of hardwood chairs and Powerful, a table line that discreetly conceal multiple power options. We are particularly keen on Dichroic, its micro-layers of metal oxide refracting light into multiple hues. Many designs showcase her favorite materials: acrylic, fur, leather, marble, rattan. If that sounds a bit luxe, well, what else would you expect from Rottet, whose clients include Goldman Sachs and St. Regis Hotels & Resorts? “We’re a couture showroom with off-the-rack and custom pieces,” she explains. All perfectly tailored to your own space. space 3-107

The design world lost a giant in 2011, when

ceramicist Eva Zeisel passed away at the age of 105. But her modernist creations live on—sometimes in new form, as in the case of a vibrant collection by FilzFelt. The series’ six designs reinterpret Zeisel’s iconic ceramics and graphic room dividers as acoustic wall tiles, Fish Block among them. Germanmilled wool felt faces the ½-inch-thick modules, backed with a recyclable PET acoustic substrate. Free of formaldehyde, VOCs, chemical irritants, and harmful substances, the made-to-order tiles are offered in 63 colors. Through Knoll. space 1111

plastic—fantastic!

Master of minimalism Jasper Morrison and Vitra team up yet again on a sleek seating series. As its name suggests—no irony here!—the All Plastic is made entirely of polypropylene and features a streamlined form that nods to classic wood chairs (including Basel, which the Brit talent designed for the manufacturer in 2008). The high-performance material, which is through-dyed for color durability, renders the seating suitable for indoors and out, office cafés and restaurant terraces. Frame elements are cast in a single piece, while the more organic molded seat and backrest—connected via axial shafts with rubber buffers—flex to embrace the user. It’s Morrison at his best—and most elemental. space 1192

IIDA AWARDS

lsm Centerbridge Partners, New York

York’s modernist jewel. But sometimes even icons need an update. After renewing a lease for three levels there, Centerbridge Partners knew it was time to rethink its headquarters. So the private-equity firm called Interior Design Hall of Fame member Debra Lehman Smith and James McLeish’s firm, LSM, to devise a plan that would visually define Centerbridge’s current identity and set the stage for future growth. Lehman Smith says she encouraged Centerbridge to undertake “one big move,” architecturally. So she opened up a double-height atrium that anchors the office and symbolizes Centerbridge’s commitment to transparency and collaboration. From the atrium’s ceiling, an installation of glass panels commissioned from artist Spencer Finch is suspended on near-invisible wires. Meanwhile, care was taken to respect the landmarked building. LSM restored the existing travertine in the elevator lobby and worked with the original structural engineer, Severud Associates, to expose some steel columns. Lehman Smith calls the result “a present-day view into Seagram.” “It doesn’t feel as if something new has been inserted, though,” she continues. “Rather, through restoration, the space unfolds to embrace the integrity of the structure.” Let’s raise a glass to that. —Heather Corcoran

IIDA AWARDS No lesser figure than General Chiang Kai-Shek is responsible for this Shanghai site. Back in the 1930’s, he commandeered a suburban quarry, from which the British had extracted granite to build the city’s famed riverfront Bund, then ordered the construction of a bunker to safeguard both military equipment and cultural treasures.

International Wine & Spirits Museum, Shanghai

Today’s visitors encounter a vastly changed scenario. After entering a botanical garden and walking through a modest wooden gate, they descend to a subterranean realm by Shanghai Godolphin. The International Wine & Spirits Museum—winner of the IIDA’s annual Will Ching competition for interiors by firms of five or fewer— combines commercial functions with museum-style displays devoted to oenophile culture and viticulture, totaling 32,000 square feet. One long vaulted space stayed in its existing state, essentially empty except for the candles illuminating the bunker’s concrete niches. “We use that as a way to explain the history,” partner Kyle Mertensmeyer says. Elsewhere, architectural installations are designed to be easily dismantled without damaging the historic surroundings. Oak wine barrels serve as pedestals for glass vitrines. On the ceiling above a counter employed as both a tasting bar and a point-of-sale, Mertensmeyer massed crates that once contained bottles of Château Malmaison into a sculptural swoosh—all without assistance from digital design tools. A separate VIP cellar is a cylinder 8 feet across. It’s ringed by bottles up-lit by LEDs and capped by a mirrored ceiling, providing a selfiemagnet that’s practically irresistible. —Craig Kellogg

The food is local and seasonal with inventive (but not out-there) takes on the quintessential, like an avocado margarita or the coffee-braised beef barbacoa tacos. Designed by D+K and Alex Alcott, the interiors are equal parts fun, festive, and industrial. Party time. 201 North Morgan Sreet; 312-888-9485.

Cochon Volant [¢] As the general public continues its fascination with culinary culture, a trade term has entered the layperson’s lexicon: “the family meal,” which is what’s served to employees before a restaurant opens for dinner service. When chef Roland Liccioni was tapped for this all-day brasserie inside the Hyatt Centric, he thought about which meals made his colleagues in the kitchen happiest—thus the menu’s mix of comforting French classics: omelets, French dip, and steak frites. 100 West Monroe Street; 312-754-6560.


DINING GUIDE

Duck Duck Goat [¢]

Leña Brava [$]

Chef Stephanie Izard has a herd of goat-named restaurants in the West Loop. This is the most recent, and it comes with the endearingly up-front tagline “reasonably authentic Chinese.” Classics like moo shu pork mingle with such unusual takes as goat and duck skin spring rolls, glass noodles with smoked blueberries, and a miso sundae. The setting, courtesy of AvroKO, is sultry and decadent, conjuring a dreamlike version of Chinatowns across America—the perfect spot for a late-night feast.

Fire and ice is the theme of this Mexican restaurant from James Beard Foundation Award–winning chef Rick Bayless. Raw seafood is the ice, while everything else— braised short ribs, butter-roasted plantains, char-seared octopus—is cooked over a wood fire. Design Bureaux balanced the rustic cuisine with luxurious saddleleather chairs and walnut tables and made a feature of the exhibition-style chef’s kitchen, visible to all diners. It’s all enveloped in colors recalling the landscape of Oaxaca, the region that influences the mescal libations.

857 West Fulton Market; 312-902-3825.

900 West Randolph Street; 312-733-1975.

The name means love in Danish, and it is that culture’s cuisine that subtly inspires the fare at David and Anna Posey’s new eatery, where you can start with poached cod and end with a sunflower-seed parfait. Food aside, the design by Boone Interiors is also reason enough to go. It’s artsy and serene with wallpaper handdrawn by Anna, Apparatus sconces, chairs by the mid-century Danish designer Ejvind A. Johansson, and a courtyard warmed by an open fire.

Elske [$]

Momotaro [$] As far as Japanese restaurants go, this one breaks the mold. Its 11,000 square feet, designed by AvroKO, offer multiple dining experiences—from the sushi bar, set in the middle of the main floor, akin to a buzzing stock exchange, to a subterranean izakaya, dedicated to craft cocktails and inspired by the back alleys of Tokyo. Food choices are equally diverse: The extensive menu offers nigiri, robata skewers, and hibachi, among countless other options. 820 West Lake Street; 312-733-4818.

Frontier [¢] Should you have time to really break away from the Mart, head on over to “the edge of civilization,” aka West Town. Your palate should have that same sense of adventure, since nature dictates what’s on the menu. There are sausages made of wild boar or venison, smoked beef-cheek tacos, and an entire section dedicated to alligator (hot fried gator legs, anyone?). Saddle up to the generous wooden bar in the rustic main dining room, or kick back in the open-air beer garden. 1072 North Milwaukee Avenue; 773-772-4322.

Imperial Lamian [¢]

Roister [$] This is a fairly casual eatery for the acclaimed Alinea Group, but it’s just as excellent—and certainly lively, even boisterous at times. The tagline is “the kitchen is the restaurant, the restaurant is the kitchen,” and chef Andrew Brochu follow suit with high cuisine rooted in primal cooking techniques. Whole chicken with chamomile, maple-poached salmon, and hearth-baked lasagna are some of the dishes on offer. Enjoy them at the usual table-for-two or sit at the bar facing the open kitchen and watch the chefs work their magic. 951 West Fulton Market; reservations via tocktix.com.

A restaurant group from Indonesia makes a move to North America, landing in the Windy City. The food, though, is less Balinese and more Chinese, with a special focus on chef Wang Hongjun’s lamian, or hand-pulled noodles. Instagram aficionados fixate on the colorful xiao long bao, or soup dumplings, which come in a rainbow of hues corresponding to flavors such as spicy Szechuan, crab, truffle, and Gruyère. Designed by Jakarta-based firm Metaphor, the birdcage pendant fixtures and handmade lattice screens offer a contemporary take on traditional tropes.

TUESDAY 6 West Hubbard Street; 312-595-9440.

The Aviary [$] Libations emerge from smoking chests. Elixirs steep in miniature French presses. Liquor is suspended in an ice orb, ready to be cracked open and consumed. These are just some of the theatrical presentations at Grant Achatz’s cocktail lounge. Though each drink can be served à la carte, the menu’s multicourse format ($65) is encouraged, the cocktails taking on the arc of a meal: a lighter concoction to start, moving to more substantial offerings, and ending with a digestif. For $135, enjoy a five-course pairing of food and drinks. 955 West Fulton Street; 312-226-0868.
