Reuse & Repurpose: Luxurious Spins

Photograph by Stan Williams

I walk by the Chanel boutique in SoHo  at least three times a week, but it wasn't until the other day that I stopped to look in the windows more carefully, only to realize that these glamorous, scalloped pillars are made with carefully warped vinyl LPs.

Created by German artist Gregor Hildebrandt, the works appear both in the retail space and in the windows of the shop that the illustrious architect Peter Marino offered  a re-do in 2010. Fanciful yet chic, the repurposed records maintain their grooves that not long ago would have transformed a turntable into a music-making machine.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter

  1. Who would of thought old LP's could be so resplendent! I might have to give this a try!
