Extended Modern Comfort Symposium

February 25, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm |


Extended Modern Comfort is a collaboration between Studio VV6 in New York and Ace Hotel & Swim Club. As part of this 6–part series, a group of designers, researchers and curators embarked on an investigative design writing effort. The topics range from architectural signage, found lettering, periodical publishing and communication for interior design & the sports industry. Participants sourced material from specialist archives, visits to Palm Springs and academia publishing findings online.

During the symposium, the team will share its respective work during the last six months and engage in a discussion aimed at drawing on wider themes. The discussion will be accompanied by a printed version of the material and will be followed by a Q&A.
