Dipika and I considered buying a CONFETTISYSTEM garland for our living room window, but we reconsidered in a split second when we realized the basic strand cost over $300.
Y’all, CONFETTISYSTEM’s garlands are actual works of modern art. I would love to catch the exhibit at MoMA, probably my favorite museum in the States.
But I especially would love to have their garland in my living room window.
in honor of CONFETTISYSTEM’s current installation at MoMA PS1 (hello,
shiny floral paradise!), we’re taking a look back at a few of our favorite props that the
New York–based design duo has created for us over the years…From blossom boughs to metallic fringe to something resembling a pineapple piñata,
CONFETTISYSTEM’s MoMA PS1 exhibition, 100 Arrangements, is a wonderland of
arts-and-crafts confections. We particularly love the colorful paper flowers
(the pair handmade similar garlands for a wedding shoot in our Style Guide).
Friends Nick Andersen and Julie Ho, the paper-wielding wizards behind
CONFETTISYSTEM, have been collaborating with us since 2010, and have done
set design for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Beach House.TIP: Stop by the museum on Sunday afternoons to see the installation transformed into
a performance space for various artists as part of MoMA PS1’s Sunday Sessions
program. (Then grab a bite at the museum’s restaurant, M. Wells, the cafeteria-style
dinette that’s set up like a classroom.)
CONFETTISYSTEM’s 100 Arrangements exhibition is on view at MoMA PS1
through March 31, 2013.
