new york sunshine — the art, fashion, and design brand led by john margaritis — has opened its summer pop-up shop in the coastal, long island town of southampton. with this season’s clothing collection drawing from aggressive 1990s surf style, the interior of the space has been conceived as a site of structural and architectural intensity. mirroring the rough and raw quality of the brand’s aesthetic this season, margaritis designed ‘the foundation chair’ and a series of concrete shelves to populate the subterranean retail space

the new york sunshine southampton pop-up incorporates raw materials and rough textures to follow the clothing collection’s aggressive aesthetic. shelves containing various merchandise — from sweatshirts to hats — are made from formed, reinforced concrete. suspended from the ceiling by thick steel chains, each shelf weighs a whopping 300 pounds. similarly, ‘the foundation chair’ is made from formed concrete, triple laminated tempered glass, and welded steel, weighing about 450 pounds when assembled. the intensity of the furniture, and the monumentality of materials used, align with the brand’s bold creative culture.
