Arthouse selected New York-based artist Matthew Geller's proposal titled sixty weak knees as the design for Lounge! after conducting a nationwide request to architects, designers and artists asking them to conceive of a temporary, multipurpose lounge for Arthouse's empty 3,000 square foot gallery space.
Lounge! will function as a temporary forum for programs and discussions regarding the blurring of art, architecture and design in modern and contemporary culture. Visit Lounge! to relax and enjoy our reading area of seminal books on architecture and design, view weekly film screenings, listen to a curated audio program and attend informal discussions and workshops.
