city slicker Inspired by the energy of urban living, Mohawk Group’s latest series, Nutopia, is rife with metropolitan spirit. High-energy design manifests in the gritty-cool planks, which can be specified in solid hues or as a charcoal-tone field accented with gestural streaks of color. Permanently stain-resistant (thanks to Duracolor solution-dyed premium nylon) and backed with Red List–free Ecoflex polyolefin, the line represents the best in durability and environmental awareness. space 377

seats so neat With cubicles becoming artifacts of a bygone era, it’s easy to get distracted at work. Itoki Corporation presents a solution just right for today: the PM lounge, a bite-size one- or two-seater that can be enclosed in a knitted-fabric screen for extra privacy. It’s like a high-back sofa on demand—and on casters! Arranged in groups, the booths present a creative solution for small team gatherings—or can provide some much-needed seclusion when it’s really time to buckle down. space 7-8034

world piece Alfredo Häberli embraces mix-and-match mania with Dado. The designer’s latest sofa for Andreu World offers central, corner, chaise lounge, armchair, and even footrest modules in a range of styles and widths. Upholstered in any of the countless fabrics from the manufacturer’s catalogue, cushions are accented by an edge-defining seam in one of seven colors. A handy connection system allows you to create whatever configuration you desire. space 10-132


BREAKING NEWS

Ayse Birsel and Bibi Seck’s Overlay for Herman Miller is designed to do just that: lay oh-so-lightly atop existing workplace settings. The lightweight movable walls—which can be outfitted with whiteboard surfacing, textiles, laminates, glass, or, indeed, any custom material—create temporary rooms that bring order and coherence to unwieldy open plans. Best of all, Overlay takes just hours to configure, so it’s a total cinch to have a confab room in the morning and a freeflowing events space at night. Genius. space 321

curves ahead A “softer, more contoured aesthetic” is what Brian Graham strove for when creating Medinah, a suite of modular seating and surface elements for California-based Martin Brattrud. Intended for collaborative workspaces, cafés, lobbies, and the like (the manufacturer is far from prescriptive), the collection hinges on space-saving back-to-back units that gang for a reduced footprint. Creative options abound: Add seat backs or privacy panels (available in three heights), choose straight or angled seats and surfaces, and go for full-, half-, and no-arm options. space 347 Multi-hyphenate talent Marc Newson has applied his brilliance to practically every industrial design genre, from Apple watches and Montblanc pens to the lie-flat seats on Qantas airplanes. His latest endeavor in the furniture field finds him partnering with Knoll on the Newson Aluminum side chair. Inspired by the floating lines of Mies van der Rohe’s 1929 Brno sled chair, Newson reversed its cantilever for a modern take on the iconic piece. The black or white aluminum frame has a contrasting peekaboo mesh seat—offered in yellow, orange, blue, white, black, or gray—that lends additional weightlessness. space 1111

Petra and Nicola Kapitza call their namesake company a “geometric art studio.” The sisters’ colorful and bold surface designs, composed mainly of blocks, stripes, and other shapely repeats, span myriad product categories: Clinique makeup packaging, IKEA rugs, and Comme des Garçons sweaters, to name just a few. Now the sisters enter the performance fabric arena, collaborating with Designtex on CrissCross, digitally printed on Greenguard Gold–certified stain-, moisture- and odor-resistant Crypton. Its wide, staggered blocks are arresting from afar, while the diagonal stripes and crosshatching provide just as much visual fodder up close. A portion of proceeds from the collection—one of five collabs in the Crypton 5x5 series—goes to nonprofit RxArt. space 303

Ascend the lobby escalator and behold what appears to be a meteorological phenomenon better suited to the inclement weather outside: a perfectly formed rainbow overhead. It’s the work of Texas-based installation artist Gabriel Dawe, who wrangled 30 miles of sewing thread into prismatic swaths of color— a feat that took three people 60 hours to achieve. He uses the full spectrum of colors “to make that connection to light,” he said when we cornered him for a quick chat. “I try to offer the viewer an approximation of things otherwise inaccessible to us.” Dawe’s commercial translation of this piece is on the 10th floor at Mannington Commercial: a four-pattern nylon carpet collection dubbed Moiré.

IIDA AWARDS

IIDA awards Hall of Fame member Michael Gabellini and his partner Kimberly Sheppard sought to breathe into the two-story, 4,300-square-foot interior of the company’s Beijing flagship. With minimal materials but myriad details, Gabellini Sheppard Associates created “an ethereal environment, as if suspended between the earth and the sky,” Gabellini recalls. If the white-oak flooring and paneling represent the earth, the suspended ceilings’ meringue-white folds of cast gypsum are the sky. Downstairs, the folds are restrained. On the second floor, they appear to billow like clouds. The switchback staircase, its handrail folding over to house LEDs, “is a bit like origami,” Gabellini notes. “I was particularly inspired by the natural light of the region,” Sheppard says of Inner Mongolia, where the baby goats providing the wool are raised. That inspiration is witnessed in the 24-foot-wide expanse of wall comprising 16,000 translucent acrylic rods. Aside from the symbolism of representing the spindles used to spin yarn, the rods serve a functional role. Pull a group of them out, and they can form shelves for displaying folded sweaters. —Edie Cohen

Detroit Foundation Hotel

Two urban visions are merging in downtown Motor City. The former fire headquarters is now the Detroit Foundation Hotel. Simeone Deary Design Group’s Gina Deary and Lisa Simeone transformed the 95,000-square-foot structure into a reflection of the city’s past while embracing its present. “I’m from the area,” Deary says, “so I felt an obligation to produce a project the city could be proud of.” Highlights of the five-story neoclassical building include the main entrance’s terra-cotta arches, formerly the fire engine entrance. The ground level’s 18-foottall ceiling originally accommodated trucks. Now, it’s home to the Apparatus Room, a restaurant that retained the existing glazed brick tiles. Brand-new, however, is a banquette niche’s elaborate custom pendant fixture, its billowing white fabric resembling smoke, and the cascade of handblown glass orbs around the adjacent bar. Details by local artisans proliferate throughout the hotel and its 100 guest rooms, from the iron door handles to the McClure’s potato chips. Metallic pastels, a nod to automobile paints from Detroit’s heyday, accent the deep-chocolate color palette. Two suites with original cherry paneling are particularly notable: They were the former offices of the fire department’s highest ranking members. But now, instead of fighting fires, occupants are partaking in podcasts at the in-house studio. —Wilson Barlow CHRISTINE BABINI, KATIE LIBERMAN, MARK ST. ROMAIN: PROJECT TEAM.

Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub put geometry into play with Poise, a spirited suite of occasional furniture. Round, square, and “squircle” shapes can stand on their own or coalesce into minimalist landscapes. The Jehs+Laub partners also toy with scale, as tables can be specified at varied heights. Bases are welded from laser-cut stainless steel in natural or powder-coat finish, while tabletops come in a wide range of veneers and laminates, in addition to solid white acrylic.

“I started thinking about where people find themselves comfortable, and how they utilize their space,” the Iwasaki Design Studio founder explains. Back at his atelier, he conceived Kiik, a modular system that supports working, interacting, or relaxing. Seats with or without backrests come in four styles, all with powder-coated steel frames, die-cast aluminum legs, and upholstery from partners like Designtex and Maharam. Tables in five sizes and consoles in three heights come in natural or black oak laminate, with optional USB ports. Configuration possibilities are practically limitless, but there are preplanned footprints to aid the specification process.

SPACE 391 Modern, intelligent, tailored. Such is the brand statement encapsulated by the manufacturer’s first permanent Mart showroom, the brainchild of Michael Vanderbyl. The Interior Design Hall of Fame member relies on an old trick—a mirrored wall—to help make the space appear larger. But the device is not merely a square-footage saver: the reflections help illustrate how multiple products would appear in more generously proportioned environments...say, a corporate workplace. Black-and-white photos of dramatic empty spaces act as “before” shots, while the surrounding products suggest the “after.” Among the introductions on display is Nigel, a minimalist and user-centric desking series notable for its colorful finish palette and ability to be personalized with storage, surface, and divider options.

The collection began with a visit to the Rhode Island School of Design Museum in Providence, where Todd Oldham’s fashion exhibit captivated Weitzner with its bold colors and “over-the-top” embroidery and beading. Back at the studio, the stimuli broadened to include trailblazers like Isabel Toledo and Issey Miyake. Among the series standouts is Carolina Ombré, a cotton-polyester drapery tieback imbued with shifting color to resemble a multilayered necklace.

The pair named the 5-Waves chair for the annunciated zones of the injection-molded shell, which supports the body without restricting its movement. The first “wave” is purely structural. The second provides a transition to the springy sections. The third helps support the pelvis and back.

Its large-scale textile weave, blended with a hint of metallic thread, comes in 16 colorways including this moody option and neutrals like Champagne and tan.

David Hamlin oriented strips of 100-percent wool felt on edge. Courtesy of the material’s acoustic-dampening qualities, the 6-by-24-inch cork-backed modules, which come in 50 colorways, will make any room sound as good as it looks. Through Knoll.

“There is an intimacy to this collection”

momentum textiles SPACE 11-106 The bright blocks of Cityscape began as a mural produced by Stanley

Felderman for Drago Ristorante at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. He and Nancy Keatinge then translated the mural into an upholstery fabric immortalizing the syncopated beat of the highway strip, complete with bands of neon and blacktop-inspired grays. “From a distance you see the overall pattern and layering,” the FKA Studio founders explain, “whereas up close you become engaged and more aware of the complex mix of the colors and texture, as well as the intricacy of the weave.” Seven high-octane colorways—from revved-up jewel tones to dramatic black-onwhites—are offered in slub-yarn recycled-polyester.

lection of cushion-back tiles interweaving silvery fibers. Choose from a trio of patterns: Horizon Line, its rhythm established via streaks of varying weight; the drizzlelike Rain Maker, with its high-frequency intermingling of shades; and Cloud Canopy, the most complex of the three, its abstract composition harking to its namesake. Textured Sky is equipped with a PVC-free open-cell backing and a premier moisture-management system that prevents mold and mildew by facilitating quick evaporation—a rainmaker indeed.

SPACE 11-135 Presenting eight conspicuously named patterns—

Area, Forest, Field, Ocean, Reef, Dune, Arctic, and Canyon—it’s clear where the Stuttgart, Germany–based manufacturer found its inspiration. But for all that the flooring company borrows from nature, it also gives back: The soft tiles are constructed of 100-percent regenerated Econyl yarn, and are completely free of bitumen, latex, and PVC. The eight patterns, in six hues, come in broadloom and self-layering versions.

“The design draws from a bird’seye view of landscape structures: fields, dunes, canyons, pack ice,and forests”

ANTHONY TAHLIER


DINING GUIDE

Beatnik [¢/$] As the name suggests, the decor at this newcomer is decidedly bohemian— Morocco by way of Bali, if you will. Vintage crystal chandeliers, potted plants, layered Persian rugs, and pillow-strewn banquettes predominate, while a bright and airy glass-roofed courtyard tops it off. Dinner is mezze style: shareable Mediterranean plates of haloumi, fried baby eggplant, beet hummus with blue cheese and roasted pepitas, and potatoes three ways with labneh and smoked caviar. Drinks, masterminded by an Aviary alum, are eclectic yet crowd-pleasing. Take the Second Fiddle: bourbon refreshed with pineapple, lemon, turmeric, tarragon, and sumac salt. Delish. 1604 West Chicago Avenue; 312-929-4945.

Bellemore [$] Chef Jimmy Papadopoulos has an Instagram hit on his hands with the Oyster Pie, consisting of a savory oyster custard topped with caviar and accompanied by a glass of champagne. His and pastry chef Allison Schroeder’s delectable delights are served in a 6,000-square-foot space by Studio K that has the feel of a stately manor. Kelly Wearstler tile, custom brass chandeliers, and pink velvet high-top chairs contribute to the subdued-glam aesthetic, while suspended birdcages holding taxidermied peacocks lend eccentric whimsy. 564 West Randolph Street; 312-667-0104.

Booth One [$]

INTERIOR DESIGN

102

Inhabiting what had been the famed Pump Room, Booth One is named after its predecessor’s VIP table (think Frank Sinatra)—a tradition that continues today. The reimagined space still features grids of black-and-white celebrity photos snapped on-site, but has been refreshed with an ivorybased palette. (The sumptuous Dimorestudio lighting remains, a holdover from the restaurant’s most recent incarnation as part of Ian Schrager’s Public hotel.) As for the menu, classic dishes like beef Wellington are joined by a few surprises—big-eye tuna sashimi, for one—all prepared with seasonal ingredients. 1301 North State Parkway; 312-649-0535.

Daisies [¢/$] “Midwestern pasta” is the conceit chef Joe Frillman proposes with Daisies, named for his grandmother. Pastas and dumplings on offer range from pierogi and gnocchi to ravioli and tagliatelle, with a focus on local produce and subtlety. Comfort fare comes in the form of onion dip with ridged potato chips modeled on a Frillman family fave. For libations, try the house-made raspberry soda or a beet old-fashioned. The ambience is simple and fresh: woodsy inside, airy out back, where an inviting planterhung patio beckons. The perfect environment in which to unwind. 2523 North Milwaukee Avenue; 773-661-1671.

Gibsons Italia [$] Gibsons’s first culinary endeavor in 12 years is a three-story spectacle situated right on the Loop. The floor-to-ceiling windows and retractable roof, masterminded by architecture firm Knauer Incorporated, frame breathtaking skyline views. Naming mid-century Milan as his key inspiration, Mark Knauer upholstered much of the seating in—what else?—Italian leather. Which seat you choose, however, depends on your appetite. Enjoy a few drinks in the first-floor bar or third-floor lounge, or head to the second story for a traditional fine-dining experience. 233 North Canal Street; 312-414-1100.

Lonesome Rose [¢]

NO. 50 COLLECTION

Award-winning bartender Paul McGee teamed up with chef Pete Coenen to produce this supercool Southwestern-style hot spot that’s open from 7AM to 2AM. Rise and dine with breakfast tacos and coffee to go, then return at happy hour for a cocktail at the poured-concrete bar. Whether you’re visiting with a date or the whole crew, be sure to reserve in advance: The wooden banquettes lining the walls fill up quickly. 2101 North California Avenue; 773-770-3414.

DINING GUIDE

Where Elegance meets Purpose

Marisol [$] Located on the ground floor of the Museum of Contemporary Art, this restaurant is a homage to the late Venezuelan-French sculptor María Sol Escobar. A mural by Chris Ofili graces the back wall, playing off furniture in complementary brights. The loosely New American menu features “chameleonic” dishes, from miso butterscotch pudding to the not-to-bemissed no-chickpea hummus, actually a blend of toasted sunflower seeds and artichokes. The most on-brand item on the menu, however, has to be the butter lettuce salad that comes with a dressing from the Museum of Modern Art Artists’ Cookbook. 205 East Pearson Street; 312-799-3599.

Pacific Standard Time [$] Windy City meets West Coast at this California-influenced bistro, the theme present not only in the seven signature cocktails and multiple left coast beers on tap, but also in the interior design: bright, airy, and tranquil, with expansive window walls, comfortable seating, and wooden beams. Pacific Standard Time only opens for dinner (that’s 5PM for you early birds), so don’t miss your chance to try chef Erling-Wu Bower’s unique creations. The ricotta dumplings are especially recommended. 141 West Erie Street; 312-736-1778.

Proxi [$] Michelin–starred chef Andrew Zimmerman, formerly of Sepia, indulges in wanderlust with an eatery devoted to global street food. Asian, Middle Eastern, and Latin flavors are the name of the game, from an elevated Thai beef salad with Wagyu sirloin to a tres leches cake with caramelized goat’s milk. The interiors, situated in a converted printing house with stunning steel-framed windows, are the work of Meyer Davis, which channeled a mid-century brasserie—a swooping marble bar, antiqued mirrors, and curved banquettes. S H O W D A I LY 2 0 18

565 West Randolph Street; 312-466-1950.

Radio Anago [¢/$] Moodily lit (read: very dark!), this sultry sushi eatery is modeled after latenight Tokyo dining joints. Its fresh sushi, sashimi, and steamed pork buns will satisfy classicists, while culinary adventurers will be seduced by the luxe fried chicken gilded with edible gold. The dining room grooves to a trip-hop soundtrack as restaurant-goers imbibe Japanese twists on oldschool cocktails, such as a G&T with citrusy sansho pepper or a sake gimlet. (Sake bombs are also encouraged, for those brave enough to go there.) Bonus: It’s opposite the Mart! 226 West Kinzie Street; radioanago.com.

S.K.Y. [$]

Your vision. Unrestricted.

When chef Stephen Gillanders opened S.K.Y. this year in one of the city's artsier districts, he wanted it to feel modern and innovative, a reflection of the surrounding community. The result is the stuff of industrial-grunge dreams, with abundant raw concrete complemented by simple wooden tables. The environment may appear tailored to casual fare, but looks can be deceiving: Gillanders’s menu of fresh salads and traditional entrées equals dining at its finest, and guests can reserve a spot at the four-seat chef’s table for complete culinary immersion. 1239 West 18th Street; 312-846-1077.

Sushi-san [$] With chef Kaze Chan at the helm of this hip sushi joint, there’s no questioning the quality of the menu—if you choose to use one, that is. Otherwise, you can call ahead and book the four-seat omakase—or, as it’s called here, “oma-kaze”—the chef’s-choice smorgasbord. There’s also a hand-roll bar, limited to parties of four, where bespoke items are crafted. Once you’ve got your food, kick back and enjoy the minimalist all-wood decor, hip-hop beats, and perhaps one of the joint’s signature cocktails. 63 West Grand Avenue; 312-828-0575.

For dinner and a show, this duo from restaurant group Audiotree is a one-stop shop. Tied House is a new fine-dining restaurant from James Beard Award winner and Top Chef Masters alumna Debbie Gold, featuring a French-inspired menu with dishes categorized under the labels Vegetable, Land, and Sea. Its sophisticated bistro decor by Gensler contrasts with that of the historic Schubas Tavern to which it’s attached. The 115-year-old bar and music venue was once a Schlitz Brewery saloon.

The Delta [¢]

INTERIOR DESIGN

TIED HOUSE

The Mississippi Delta has been called “the most Southern place on Earth,” and this restaurant aims to bring its quintessential charms to Wicker Park. The menu centers on a single item: the region’s hot tamale, a smaller, spicier version of the Latin variety. The Delta’s “red hot” version is made of cornmeal grits and beef brisket. Also available is a vegan variant with wild mushrooms, and a third option that pays homage to the Jim Shoe sandwich—a Chicago specialty with lamb, pastrami, giardiniera, and provolone. If tamales aren’t your style, there are plenty of other dishes to choose from, like grilled catfish or a dry-aged beef burger, plus a full menu of craft cocktails and local brews. 1745 West North Avenue; 773-360-1793.

The Warbler [¢] This hot-off-the-presses restaurant by the owners of Gather is a true 21st-century venue, from the U-shape bar and exposed-brick wall (owed to a gut renovation) to a menu rife with gourmet flatbreads. A multi-course dinner is $25 a person before 6PM, part of the Warbler’s amiable “Supper Club” program, while the bar serves avian-themed cocktails and beers. Weather permitting, there's a roomy patio.
