The Smart Set
The gap continues to close between furniture for public and for private, for office and for home. As a selection of highlights from this month's Neocon exhibition in Chicago shows, even the sophisticated can get tough.
FEATURES:
Ten years after renovation plans began, the U.N. complex is finally going to get the overhaul it desperately needs: The leaking, asbestos-filled Secretariat building doesn't even have a sprinkler system, and the post-9/11 security pavilion at the entrance has a provisional, tacked-on feel. The once-glorious interiors are also faded and worn, and many visitors get the feeling of having stumbled into a tattered time capsule. David D'Arcy traces the tangled history of the renovation process, and photographs by Ben Murphy document the complex, providing a rare glimpse of these iconic interiors.
