The light fantastic

If the latest offering from contemporary-furniture showroom Dzine is any indication, your living room walls may soon resemble a high-concept art installation. The store recently opened a new shop-within-a-shop devoted to Flos, the German lighting manufacturer that gave us such iconic pieces as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni’s 1962 Arco lamp. At Dzine, you’ll find an entire wall split to emit a golden ray (Wall Rupture, by Thierry Dreyfus, above), and another wall that appears to be punctured with earring-like hoops (Wall Piercing, by Ron Gilad). The shop also features smaller cutting-edge fixtures by the likes of Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, and San Francisco’s own Johanna Grawunder. Dzine is so thrilled about snagging such a legendary design firm that it’s dedicating its central window to Flos; the display, curated by a local designer, will be rotated on a quarterly basis. First up: Nicole Hollis, whose design did not involve altering any drywall.
