D-Lux is All Dressed Up for Design Trust

By heba


Royal Botania has announced the winner of their “Dress Up the D-Lux” contest! Brooklyn-based artist Rebecca Sherman‘s artwork was selected from a wide range of submissions. Her piece, “Film Still: Midnight in Paris,” is based on the idea of a pre-coded landscape. To create the piece, Sherman made a sculpture of collaged triangular mirrors and small oil paintings of smoke. She photographed the reflections of the paintings in the mirriors and digitally juxtaposed these photos with a silhouetted film still from Woody Allen‘s, Midnight in Paris. The jagged mirrors challenge and complement the curvaceous chair and the traditional seating surface. Sherman will apply the image of this artwork as well as the images of two similar artworks that incorporate film stills from Chistopher Nolan‘s Inception and Ernst Lubitsch‘s Design for Living  to the chair using translucent adhesive acetate paper. “I plan to mount the three prints to the front three sides of the chair,” she says. “I am going to paint the back of the chair silver and the interior square metallic black.” Sherman’s signature will be located underneath the Royal Botania logo.

The one-of-a-kind chair will be on display and up for auction at Design Trust‘s 2012 Art+Design Benefit Auction on November 7th. The event will be held at Ralph Pucci International in New York City and hosted by interior designer Kitty Hawks and Interior Design Editor-in-Chief, Cindy Allen. Over 100 art and design objects will be featured in celebration of urban agriculture in New York City, in addition to a toast to guests of honor, Danny Meyer and David Rockwell. Sherman will also be on hand to talk about her design inspiration and process. To learn more about Rebecca Sherman and her art, click here.
