Barneys New York is getting radical — about Italian furniture and interior design from the Sixties and Seventies, that is. A pop-up shop on the ninth floor of the Madison Avenue flagship is devoted to Radical Design featuring pieces created during the period by Gufram, Zanotta and Laboratorio Pesaro.
“Barneys is an innovative and provocative retailer and we try to create moments that surprise customers,” said Tom Kalenderian, executive vice president and general merchandise manager of men’s wear and home. “The Italian modernists during that period were coming out of architecture or art school and were in their 20s. It was a time of anti-establishment feelings around the world. Radical Design was a way to capture that sentiment.”
