Weekend Heller: The Elegantissima Show
Straight from its boffo Farmingdale premiere, the most elegant design exhibit, Elegantissima: The Design and Typography of Louise Fili opens at the Art Director’s Club on Wednesday, September 10th from 6–8:30pm. Designed by the incomparable Kevin O’Callaghan, this exhibit includes Fili’s work from four decades displayed in different conceptually thematic room environments.
Walk through a vintage library filled with books, book jackets and illustrative copyright pages; a recreated bistro packed with restaurant menus, logos and business cards; a Depression-era kitchen area featuring food package and label designs; and a haute-couture boudoir (with a deep violet fainting couch) draped with intimate apparel.
The exhibit at the ADC, 106 West 29th Street, NYC runs from Monday, September 8 through Friday, September 19.
