First Look: Inside Park Avenue Spring

After their usual 48 hours of toil, design firm AvroKo has turned Park Avenue Winter into Park Avenue Spring. Designer William Harris tells us the firm found inspiration in both New Zealand’s open landscapes and in English gardens (hence concrete casts of 18th century garden statues). Harris and friends used strong greens for the upholstery and chair backs, green- and gold-washed paper for the wall panels, and plenty of what he calls “brass moments that nature could live in.” The central installment consists of flowers captured inside of brass rods, and the wall panels feature brass molding. But see for yourself.
