The Chairousel


3D Design

Production design for a larger-than-life installation that left Times Square on the edge of its seat.

The Chairousel was one of 16 installations displayed within Times Square’s Design Pavilion, a central hub for NYCxDESIGN, a citywide design celebration in New York City in May 2019. The Pavilion, which stretched from West 42nd to West 47th Streets across five plazas, provided a showcase for prominent and emerging designers alike to collaborate and innovate and for the public to engage with their imaginative built environments.

The Chairousel was a refurbished 1960s carousel installation by the 3D Design and Interior Design departments at the School of Visual Arts. It featured a number of unique works by young designers that creatively challenged and interpreted the simple concept of chairs. The carousel itself stood underneath a towering 26 foot wooden chair.

I worked as a production designer on the project, assisting in the design and fabrication of assets and the final staging of the installation.


Developing the creative work that builds the brands and culture of tomorrow.
