Dear friend of SUITE NY, David Mann of MR Architecture + Decor, chose our FK710 Skater Chair for his impressive debut of the first stand-alone Lanvin Men’s store on US soil. Situated in a narrow townhouse on Madison Ave the three story space is a fantastic combination of old, new, plush and sparse. Materials such as blackened steel and concrete are paired with glass and vinyl decals, goat hair, velvet and mirrors. Flooring decisions include smooth concrete and pavers designed to mimic parquet, a Lanvin signature. Lighting fixtures include a custom Eric Höglund in the entry way and a vintage 1960’s Italian crystal chandelier.
SUITE NY asked Mr. Mann why he chose Fabricius& Kastholm’s 1968 Skater Chair for the space.

“I love the Skater chair and thought that it was a great icon for the Lanvin brand. Ultra Chic, as sophisticated as it gets, very James Bond.  The Skater chair is at once retro and timeless….turns out Alber agreed.”
We couldn’t agree more.
