About this event
Fall Market 2022 Artist's Reception:

Join us for an evening wine reception celebrating Domus: Patterns of Living, an exhibition at the PDC Design Gallery.

Atelier Manferdini is pleased to present Domus: Patterns of Living, an exhibition featuring design objects, physical models, and architectural drawings that aims to re-interpret traditional domesticity in contemporary interior design.

The exhibit’s vast range of objects consist of a suite of elevation drawings, models of fictional housing projects, rugs, mirrors, chairs, tables, ceramic objects, chess sets, textile and jewellery that oscillate among states of desire, consumption, usefulness, frivolousness, familiarity and weirdness.

As artifacts shift between analog and digital worlds Domus ultimately defines Elena Manferdini’s expression of the home as a vehicle for a range of human emotional states, an aesthetic that has emerged as a result of our changing patterns in contemporary living.

The PDC Design Gallery is a two-level museum-quality exhibition space, located in the free-standing building in the Pacific Design Center Plaza, West Hollywood (PDC) that was formerly occupied by MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art). The gallery opened in March 2022 with its mission to explore design as an extension of artistic practice with three four-month exhibitions per year.

Programming is devoted to art and design with particular emphasis on the decorative arts, engaging internationally renown artists, celebrated designers, noted curators, professional design organizations and leading academic institutions to draw upon the collective intelligence and creativity of design culture.
