Part & Whole and nmbello Studio at Lichen NYC

As part of the 2022 NYCxDESIGN Festival, 
Part & Whole will introduce its Loose Parts program alongside sofas from their flagship collections at Lichen NYC. The launch event will run from 5-8pm on May 10 and the exhibition 
will remain on view until May 14.

For its first Loose Parts project Part & Whole 
has collaborated with Nigerian designer Nifemi Marcus-Bello to create a special edition of his LM Stool, produced in Victoria, Canada. The edition 
of 40 yellow stools serve as a case study in de-centralized manufacturing, probing questions surrounding the relationship between production and place. The project has been documented in a print publication which includes archival images of the stool and an interview between Nifemi and Part & Whole’s artistic director Tom Chung. Both the stools and zine will be available for purchase at Lichen during the opening event and duration of the exhibition.
