Celebrating outdoor furniture from B&B Italia, talking to Ronan Bouroullec at Vitra, and toasting Gandia Blasco on its 75th anniversary.
On the final weekend of the NYCxDesign festival, Surface co-hosted a trio of events across New York City. On Saturday evening, more than 400 guests joined the Surface team at the B&B Italia Soho showroom to explore the new Gio collection of outdoor furnishings by Antonio Citterio. Sunday afternoon, editor-in-chief Spencer Bailey sat down with French designer Ronan Bouroullec at Vitra, in front of more than 100 guests, to talk about his childhood in France, working with his brother, and his latest collection for the brand. After some post-conversation cocktails, the team migrated a few blocks to the High Line Room + Terrace at The Standard hotel to celebrate Spanish furniture maker Gandia Blasco's 75th anniversary.
