Rottet Collection opens a Manhattan Showroom in the Airy, and Other News

Lauren Rottet envisions the expressive yet understated furniture, lighting, and accessories in her home collection as an array of functional art objects “designed to endure and be passed down from generation to generation,” she says. That’s because the award-winning architect, who launched her influential interiors firm in 2008, is a rigorous student of the arts, particularly the Light and Space movement. 

Each piece is imbued with movement and character, from the energetic Walking Bench’s askew legs to the Aurora Table’s luminous bronze and cast amber glass panes. They take pride of place in Rottet Collection’s newly opened Manhattan showroom, a light-filled Nomad loft that presents an array of pieces within welcoming vignettes, all unified under Rottet’s deft hand. —Ryan Waddoups
