PRIVATE PROPERTY brings together high-end sustainable furniture design and downtown New York graffiti culture: The project counts on the participation of infamous graffiti writers EARSNOT, SEMEN, JIM JOE and KR; legendary Lower East Side hang out Max Fish and its unruly clientele; and lifestyle brand ALIFE—all of whom have produced self-titled pieces.
A collaborative effort between ALIFE and Brooklyn-based contemporary furniture manufacturer UHURU, the project runs during New York Design Week and presents a a unique collection of handcrafted sustainable furniture that plays with the concept of vandalism, private property
and each’s appropriation of the other.
Open from May 14 to May 17, 2011.
