New York Magazine celebrated Design Week”as well as the new A8 sedan from our partner Audi”by gathering five of our favorite local designers at a pop-up gallery at Chelsea’s Drive In Studios. The designers”from left, Dominic Kozerski and Enrico Bonetti of Bonetti/Kozerski Studio, Jim Zivic, Lindsey Adelman, and John Houshmand (plus Chris Lehrecke, who is not pictured)”each contributed one emblematic piece.

These sculptural totem poles are part of a collection Chris Lehrecke designed for Ralph Pucci International and are fashioned from various woods including cherry and walnut. Photo: Neilson Barnard

The design duo Bonetti/Kozerski created a soothing place in which to recline and relax”and rock out. The leather rocking chaise incorporates a bluetooth-operated sound system into the headrest. Photo: Neilson Barnard

This bale of organic Texas cotton was encased in leather by Jim Zivic to create the Cotton Bale ottoman for Pucci. It serves as an excellent “party bench,” as he puts it. Photo: Neilson Barnard

Streamlining the traditional multipart light, Lindsay Adelman’s hanging lamps from her Catch collection fuse handblown glass directly to brass hardware. “I was trying to reinvent the expected assembly,” says Lindsay. “I wanted them to feel sort of jewelry-like, like a drooping gesture.” Photo: Neilson Barnard

The centerpiece of the event, of course, was experiencing the Audi A8. Guests couldn’t wait to get inside. Photo: Neilson Barnard
