OPENING: Glass lighting and sculpture installation at NYC apparel store

FILED UNDER: Announcements, Design, Opening

The duo of Romina Gonzales and Edison Zapata, whose collaborative design-make project is called Offcentre, will have an opening reception this evening for their installation at the clothing chain Peruvian Connection's Upper West Side store in New York City. Running from 6 PM to 8 PM at the apparel company's location at 341 Columbus Avenue, wine and light food will be served.

According to its website, OffCentre offers "tradition with a twist" in the form of mold- and free-blown lighting and vessels that exhibit rough-hewn aspects either through mold or process. In the "About" section, Gonazes and Zapata's approach: "applies deconstructive methodologies to produce a line of lighting and functional glasswares ... circumventing traditional glassmaking processes. Their instinctive and raw methods produce a playful and innovative flavour questioning current contemporary trends."
