Inside the festively decorated showroom – with flowers from Flatiron florist Blooming Affairs – guests were introduced to the Intelligent Living transformable modular system. What seemed like ample seating room, were day and night variations of the transformable modular system for the bedroom, living room and office which offers the owner a multi-purpose, all-encompassing experience. Leading the tech-driven future of home and furniture design, MDRN’s innovative lifestyle solution is set to redefine the standard of luxury living.
Also, on display, the new Ori Pocket Closet from robotic interiors company Ori Collections surprised the lively crowd as a seemingly boxed entertainment system expanded into a full-sized, walk-in closet, spanning nine feet. Reimagining age-old concepts in design and real estate development, Intelligent Living by MDRN and Ori Collection’s Pocket Closet were awe-inspiring, allowing guests to brainstorm ideas for their own future spaces.
The MDRN Showroom featured original artworks by talented visual artists Manuel Knapp and Vianey, a Colombian-American contemporary artist and founder of the COOL ART movement. Guests snapped photos of the creative art pieces displayed throughout MDRN as they enjoyed the evening’s signature cocktails and wine from Pampelonne, hors-d’oeuvres from Flatiron Restaurant OBICA, and holiday sweets including MDRN designed cookies by Artistic Creations.
In the Winter 2018 cover story of Classiques Modernes, Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events discusses his journey and the most significant moments of his career at the top of the events business. The event planning company produces over 120 events a year, providing an unforgettable experience and memorable escape for all those in attendance.
