On level four, visitors can see the work of Berlin-based BLESS, a combination of fashion, art, design and architecture. For the 2017 Biennial, BLESS will transform the classic Artek Kiki lounge chair with a “dress” to turn these pieces into interactive spaces called ‘architurniture.’ These transformed chairs – of ‘Lobby Conquerors’ – will inhabit the lounge at Randolph Stair landing to invite visitors to explore the space.
