The installation, entitled ‘COstruction’, fuses architecture with fashion, using unexpected forms and materials to underscore Nooka’s influence in the design world. Set amongst the futuristic fashion of DDCLab’s flagship store, the installation serves as a centerpiece and focal point for retailing Nooka products in the store. The purpose of the project is to create a work of art that also represents a practical form to merchandise Nooka products. Nooka produces physical manifestations of ideas. SOFTlab creates amazing spaces using cutting edge technology and thinking. Tietz-Baccon Fabrication heavily emphasizes technology, material, and craft. Together, these three entities COme together to create a unique retail environment that features Nooka creations in the fabulous DDCLab space. The Nooka X SOFTlab retail installation is comprised of plywood and felt, that was provided by States Industries, Columbia Forest Products, and FilzFelt. Once collected, Tietz-Baccon fabricated these materials in their local workshop in Long Island City, New York.
