Ligne Roset and Rich Brilliant Willing partnered together for the first time to erect a VIP lounge experience at the 2011 Armory Show in New York City.

The team paired high-end Ligne Roset furnishings with found construction grade materials for the temporary space, and in less than 48 hours, the installation evolved into life. It resulted in a relaxing, comfortable and delightfully surprising environment in a 5000-square-foot garage at Piers 92 and 94.

Inspired by a forest canopy, Rich Brilliant Willing created multiple levels in the space, playing with light and shadow as it passes through the green and yellow snow fence. The low end, ready made materials provide a rich contrast to the luxurious leather and felt upholstery of the Ligne Roset Ottoman collection by designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance.
