“During the Renaissance, scholars would fill cupboards with collections of oddities from the natural and manmade world—animal skeletons, ancient artifacts, unusual botanical specimens. Meant to represent the cosmos on an intimate scale, they were known as cabinets of curiosities.” (W Magazine)
Through December 23rd, see and shop Thomas Erber’s Le Cabinet de Curiosités, a collection of unique/handmade/commissioned objects and art pieces collected from approximately 50 brands, designers, artists and creatives. Erber’s Cabinet is in its fourth year; this marks the first year he has brought it to New York.
You can find the traveling collection hosted by the Maison Kitsuné boutique in the NoMad Hotel and the Avant/Garde Diaries Project Space in Nolita.
