Designer and materials maven Suzanne Tick believes the right upholstery will feel as good as it looks—maybe even better. Not that she made any compromises when devising her Tactility collection for Luum, which comes in four distinct patterns and compositions inspired by sewing, spinning, and moiré: the quilted Arc Angle; the wool Equilux; and polyesters Superspun and Interstice. Suiting the haptic vibes, numerous earthy colorways are available from the innovative maker. space 1043

Put your watering can away—these mossy G-Screens, designed by Alain Gilles for Green Mood, were naturally mummified back in the studio. In short, they’re a zero-upkeep way to incorporate greenery into any environment. Besides being instant moodboosters, the verdant screens can serve as unconventional room dividers, adding a touch of privacy and directing circulation and movement through a space. Screens are available in 63- and 71-inch heights to enable creative installations, and have natural sound-absorbing properties. space 7-4014

home office “As designers, we have seen a dramatic shift in how people utilize office space—the lines have been blurred between residential and commercial spaces,” says Jonas Bjerre-Poulson, co-founder of Norm Architects. To address that shift, the Danish studio collaborated with Allsteel on the Park collection of tables and seating. Crafted in a combination of traceless laminate surfacing and formed steel—and available upholstered in a range of fabrics from Allsteel partnerships or COM—Park offers sleek, functional work settings with all the comfort of home. space 1120

With this installment, NeoCon celebrates its golden anniversary—quite an achievement for a happening that almost didn’t happen. The event’s planned inaugural installment, in 1967, was canceled on account of a fire that destroyed the venue, McCormick Place. Luckily, a new location, the Merchandise Mart, presented itself, and two years later some 750 exhibitors, 100 presenters, and nearly 10,000 architects and designers convened for six jam-packed days of product launches, elbow rubbing, and programming—activities that remain at the core of the NeoCon experience. Since the show’s founding, the U.S. office furniture industry has ballooned from an $830 million business to a $13.4 billion one. NeoCon has both prefigured various trends and reflected sociocultural phenomena, from the 1970s conservation movement to the rise of personal computing in the ’80s to more recent fixations on ergonomics, mobility, and wellness. Come to the Future Is Party bash tonight at 5PM on the Mart’s South Drive to raise a toast to this momentous, groundbreaking, and influential show—the industry’s premier destination!

quite a pair! Like the two halves of each tile in its Inside Shapes flooring collection, Form Us With Love was on the hunt for a perfect fit. The Swedish design studio found just that with Shaw Contract. “From the very beginning, Shaw was open to innovation,” explains Form’s co-founder and CEO Jonas Pettersson. If “innovation” means myriad shapes and total compositional freedom, then Pettersson has hit the nail on the head. Each 24-inch square tile is divided into two geometric pieces available in six hues. space 1029

Naoto Fukasawa is recognized the world over for his minimalist modern approach, words that describe his Land lounge chair for Plank. The Japanese designer’s intention with the rotational-molded lounge was to create a simple seat that would lend a graphic kick to outdoor spaces, thus its 100-percent plastic composition. But that understated elegance is exactly what affords Land its versatility. Outdoors or in, it makes a sculptural statement—and, perhaps more importantly, provides a perfect perch when it’s time for a break. Through ICF Group. spaces 365 and 7-10058

shimmer and shine For Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer, creating a line of textiles from scratch is not a clear-cut process. “When I started this collection, I had an atmosphere I was aiming for, but it was still a bit abstract,” she says. “Now, when I see the designs together, I think, Yes, this is what I had envisioned.” The designs in question belong to Matter, a nylon-wool–based luxury line designed for Wolf-Gordon. The three patterns—terrazzo-inspired Mass, organically “cabled” Merge, and the dotted Points—are accented with subtle metallic threads. space 10-161

together time “The international workplace is in a period of transition, moving away from enclosed cubicles toward a new landscape that’s more human, collaborative, and adaptable,” explains Swedish designer Henrik Schulz. His contribution to the workplace of the future is Mod, designed for HBF. This collection of sofas, settees, chairs, benches, and ottomans blurs the line between traditional working environments and social spaces. Upholstery is available in any HBF Textiles fabric/leather or COM, and the steel legs come in a variety of finishes. An optional power outlet can also be installed below the seat. space 387

hay SOUTH LOBBY Cool Copenhagen-based furnishings brand Hay has joined the Herman Miller family! To celebrate,

the Danish design company launched its first U.S. exhibition, right here in the Mart. German designer Stefan Diez, who contributes the New Order shelving and storage system to Hay’s product line, riffed on that kitset of modular parts (fun fact: it assembles with just an Allen key) for a super-sized version in the south lobby. The boxy two-story volume, in extruded aluminum and tinted glass, contains room vignettes of Hay merchandise, plus videos and graphics. But back to business. Beginning this year, Herman Miller will make Hay product available through its Design Within Reach chain, launch a dedicated online store, and open four Hay-branded retail locations in North America.

Cherem Arquitectos was presented with a challenging

site for Birkat Itzjak, an Orthodox Jewish temple for the Comunidad Maguén David. But the resulting serene interior belies the small corner plot on a busy Mexico City street. “When inside, it feels like another world,” Cherem co-partner José Antonio Aguilar says of the five-story building, which includes worship and workshop areas, plus a library, study, and rabbi’s office. Materials play a role in that transformation as well as in unifying the project. Travertine, for instance, composes most of the facade, lines the courtyard, and forms the flooring in the men’s prayer section. Above the latter is the women’s mezzanine; it’s fronted by a glass-backed brass-mesh screen, simultaneously providing privacy and a surface to bounce light around the 45,000-squarefoot space. Natural illumination enters via fixed eaves and a wall of pivoting glass doors framed in steel. The same metal trims the sole onyx facade, which faces east toward Jerusalem—further evidence that special care was taken to create a sacred retreat in the urban milieu. And since founder and other co-partner Abraham Cherem is a member of the synagogue, the firm completed the project pro bono. —Athena Waligore

they are making some humans more productive by teaching new skills to those in the workforce facing changing markets. At least that’s the premise behind a laboratory-showroom hybrid in Singapore called RACE, which stands for Robotics Automation Centre of Excellence. “It incentivizes midcareer professionals to embrace new technologies,” Ministry of Design founder and director Colin Seah says of the 2,600-square-foot space that’s dedicated to teaching. RACE bears little resemblance to the typical clinical, white laboratory. In fact, it’s the opposite. Black epoxy flooring begins at the entry, where it teams with walls painted with a black-and-white anamorphic web, then continues into the project’s main space. Mostly open to accommodate modular robots, it’s a sort of futuristic funhouse, with aluminum tubes and LED strips arranged in stripes on canted panels forming the walls and ceiling. But the panels are all business: They conceal conduits for electricity, data, and the compressed air generators that power the robots, and are demountable. Three partitioned enclaves can host small groups for hands-on training. Since December 2016, RACE has held over 30 sessions imparting robotics skills to some 500 trainees across the business-government spectrum. —Edie Cohen

Founded by Van Cleef & Arpels in 2012, L’École des Arts Joailliers claims it’s the “first school to initiate the public into the secrets of the jewelry world” through lectures and hands-on workshops. Headquartered in Paris, the institution also has outposts in major cities abroad, such as Hong Kong. That is where Johnny Li, managing director of Li&Co. Design Limited, infused local flair into L’École’s 7,000-square-foot space, which has earned the IIDA’s annual Will Ching award for a project by a firm with five or fewer employees. Fittingly, the environment is a luxe mix of French and Asian influences. Li incorporated locally sourced bamboo in rugs, screens, double-height partitions, and even the ceiling, where a particular species of the plant inspired the pattern on a mesh canopy. Its triangles are echoed in the groupings of marble-topped tables below. “We custom-designed much of the furniture,” Li notes. That goes for the lounge’s sliding screens, the 19 panels of digitally printed washi paper a nod to Chinese scroll paintings. But Li cites a second inspiration: the 1932 Maison de Verre in Paris by legendary French architect Pierre Chareau. —Athena Waligore

wanted it both ways: to create a chair with a “strong vintage reference” but that would be suited to even the most resolutely contemporary environs. The father-son team of Favaretto & Partners found their crossbreed in Tondina, its straightforward and spare lines evoking classic Scandinavian style. The plywood seat and backrest, offered in eight finishes, sit atop a tubular steel structure, available in five. Consider the fully or partially upholstered versions with fabric or leather covers, or, for a decidedly modern statement, a polypropylene seat and back in one of seven colors.

In 1968, German-born Klaus Nienkämper

bought a rundown storefront in Toronto and established his titular company with the mission of introducing Canadians to European modern furnishings. The manufacturer ultimately worked with designers worldwide, from hometowners and Interior Design Hall of Famers George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg to starchitect Daniel Libeskind. Iconic products abounded, including the Ambassador desk, which premiered during the company’s 1982 NeoCon debut. The 50-year-old brand further expanded its U.S. reach by linking with marketing firm ICF in 1994, the same year of its ultimate achievement: immortalization in an Absolut vodka ad. Still holding sway from his state-of-the-art 120,000-square-foot facility, Nienkämper credits clients, employees, and, of course, designers for the brand’s success. New to the lineup: MSDS Studio’s leather-upholstered Kush lounge chair.

Her team conducted a six-week oxidation experiment, taking fabrics outdoors and exposing them to metal and water. Using resist-dye techniques, they replicated the vibrant colors and patterns that resulted, which became prototypes for Artefact. The 12-by-48-inch carpet tiles are fabricated of Eco Solution Q nylon and boast EcoWorx backing.

Vicente Soto’s Boomerang bench is an aesthetic chameleon: reading as sleek and modern in one context, enticingly playful in another. It all depends on the color you choose—the roto-molded polyurethane comes in red, dark gray, and white—and where you put it, from museums, hospitals, and schools to corporate and residential buildings. Even the outdoors is fair game: The UV coating protects against fading.

Metal frames terminate in legs that extend at amusing angles. Coordinating tables proffer round metal tops resting gracefully upon tubular bases.

WEDNESDAY


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.

NO. 50 COLLECTION Focused and nostalgic, reflecting on the past whilst always having a dynamic vision for the future.

Lonesome Rose [¢] 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

Step Inside. Have a Zitto Moment

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 [$]

S H O W D A I LY 2 0 18

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.

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. [$]

Build your own with our configurator

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.

Tied House [$] and Schubas Tavern [¢/$] 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. Tied House: 3157 North Southport Avenue; 773-697-4632. Schubas Tavern: 3159 North Southport Avenue; 773-525-2508.

The Delta [¢] 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.

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.

At back, find a jungle lounge replete with bird of paradise plants and casual cane seating, and next door, two sound booths. One is plain drywall, a kind of scientific control for the other, outfitted in noise-muffling lighting.
