Description

The neoclassical Statue of Liberty has been the welcoming construction saluting all sailing New York newcomers since the early 1890s. Standing all alone on a small island at the Hudson River’ upper bay, it was bigger and greater than anything anyone had ever seen – nothing, though, compared with the One World Trade Center you would see today. But, besides from the already existing Brooklyn Bridge on the other side, Lady Liberty was just the shy beggining of a 50-year gap of an astounding skyscraper construction rant that would change Manhattan forever. The Flatiron, Empire State, and Chrysler Building, completed respectively in 1903, 1930 and 1932, all former World’s tallest candidates or winners, know about it, and have surely seen plenty. These living showcases embrace shorter structures like the New Museum and Hearst Tower, whose silhouettes we have featured in the same piece as a way of honouring two iconic, design-filled facades of NY. In real life, however, the latter is closer to the modern 432 Park Avenue or MetLife Building area than it is to Soho or Lower Manhattan like the firth, but they both represent the city of dreams, of unending vertical office buildings and tons and tons of neck-breaking piles of metal, concrete, and glass. One little exception here though – the recently finished 432 Park Avenue Condominium tower, which has the tallest rooftop in New York and overlooks the far-side Guggenheim Museum and Central Park… is 100% residential!

 

Brand

Beamalevich

Barcelona-based brand established in 2009 which creates decorative items and toys inspired in art, design, and architecture. It bases its patterns and themes on XX-century Modern art movements such as Neoplasticism, Suprematism, Constructivism, Pop Art, Bauhaus, and more. It also features artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Tatlin, Mondrian, Vasarely, Roy Lichtenstein, Klutsis, Le Corbusier, Van der Rohe, and more. This way, Beamalevich offers a selection of unique objects that will make your everyday life richer in creation, inspiration, and personalization. Behind BeaMalevich is the story of Xavier Vidal, a Barcelonian entrepreneur who, after living nearly ten years between Kiev and Moscow, one day stood in awe before the Kazimir Malevich Black Square that hung in the Tetriakov Gallery. Xavier didn't read that square as a dark hole, but as a threshold to an unknown world. Back in Barcelona, and with the help of local workshops, he worked to bring to life the first product inspired by that encounter: the ARCHITECTON. A successful construction toy inspired in Kazimir Malevich’s modern Suprematist architectural designs, it allows anyone with artistic sensibility to easily become a sculptor.
