Up a narrow flight of stairs at 63 Main Street,

furniture, lighting, objects, & books ....
that has been curated with extraordinary taste!!!! 
have collaborated to create ..... 
an exciting & eclectic design gallery!!!

"R/TURPAN brings together R's exceptional 
vintage & contemporary international design with 
TURPAN'S iconic & timeless objects,

This is a match made in "accessorator heaven"!!!

Flos's Newest "Lamp Accessoration" by Philippe Starck!

Lighting "accessorator supreme" Flos has commissioned "designer supreme" Philippe Starck, in collaboration with Eugene Quitllet, to create this standing lamp, "Bibliotheque Nationale." According to Strack, "imagine  fairy tale bookcase where books pirouette and take flight towards the light." In addition to shelves for books or other items, there is a UBS connector at the base to recharge ipads & smartphones!

This lamp is a divine new "lighting accessoration".....
I already have two on order!!!!

Everything Gets "Accessorated" ........ Even Bicycles!!!

with divine whip-stitched handles!!!

Sitting in a bike rack in East Hampton .....

Apparently I am once again ......  one day behind the NY Times!!!

Filling the Zach Feuer Gallery, artist Phoebe Washburn's installation "Nunderwatr Nort Lab" which explores her interest in "systems based on patterns of production often created by inefficiency." In this case she is examining the unrelated activities of art and lunch!!! In this piece the viewer will observe and smell lunch being made inside the installation, as well as watch it being eaten!!

"The main structure, composed of blocks of scrap wood, that has been repurposed and then ordered from previous installations, contains observational 'worm holes' that extend into the structure from which visitors can glean, in addition to hear and smell, bits of the activities occurring inside."

I find it Washburn's constructions to be a visual feast ....
in addition to being an ecological statement ...
and every time I look at her pieces, 
I see something else ......
I especially love peering into the 'worm holes'!!!
