Glaciel Cavern in New York

The Richard Chai store in New York displays this temporary retail installation created by Snarkitecture in collaboration with designer Richard Chai.  The installation is carved from the confines of an existing structure and transports visitors into a glacial cavern excavated from a single material.

White architectural foam has been hand-cut by to produce erosions and extensions of the sculpted walls and ceiling to create a varied landscape for the display of Richard Chai’s collection with a range of shelves, niches, hang bars and other moments embedded within the form.

If you want to see this inspiring installation it will be open from October 21-31, 2010 at 504 West 24th Street in New York.
