Barney’s Roomscapes of the Imagination


Manhattan’s Madison Avenue became home to another inspirational storefront display over the weekend, this time as a designer showcase.

Known for its bold displays, Barney’s New York has unveiled the unexpected work of five leading creatives who have used the traditional showcase to creatively interpret their own concepts of space.

Architect and designer Rafael de Cárdenas (look out for our profile coming later this month) displays a tribute to “infinity”; Joe Grillo, a contemporary artist, presents an ode to the film The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972); architects Lee Mindel and Peter Shelton of Shelton, Mindel & Associates have visualised the idea of a new millennium; and interior designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz shows a space of continuously shifting sand, furniture and lighting to capture the beauty of the 1964 film The Woman in the Dunes.
