Friedman Benda is an art gallery located in New York City and it has been known for hosting furniture-dominant exhibits. The latest event at the space tackles the importance and manifestation of comfort within the furniture category. The experience is titled simply 'Comfort' and is the curatorial work of Omar Sosa — a Spanish-born creative director.
The Friedman Benda exhibit looks to explore "new forms of pleasure," as it holds that comfort is a subjective experience. That is, it varies from person to person. This notion is observed through unconventional and shocking pieces like the chair made out of loaves of bread or the hammock that is made out of cushions. A piece that calls attention here is a sculptural couch that was designed in the 1970s by John Chamberlain.
