This ebony bench is created in collaboration between celebrated designer Virgil Abloh and Richard Stark of Chrome Hearts. The furniture endeavor took the creatives five years to complete and the silhouette is quite interesting as the seating snaps in half.
The ebony bench is displayed as part of an installation at the Chrome Hearts NYC flagship. The furniture piece is presented alongside Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2019 collection, ultimately mixing two industries and testifying for the inherent cross-pollination within design fields. In addition to this, Virgil Abloh also extends himself with his OFF-WHITE label by showcasing collaborative pieces between it and Chrome Hearts.
Alongside the ebony bench, the fashion-forward pop-up endeavor presents an interesting and engaging activation that delves into an interdisciplinary display of clothing and objects.
