Bureau V has been commissioned to design a large scale architectural installation for Camp Bisco, a three day music festival in upstate New York, July 12-14th, featuring acts including Big Boi, Skrillex, Crystal Castles and the Disco Biscuits.
We recently designed a series of tesselated structures for the launch of Pin-Up Magazine issue 7 (which features Bureau V). The pieces are hybrids between found birch branches and finished birch 1x1 boards. Better images and more details soon.
We recently designed an installation at Saatchi & Saatchi for Mary Ping’s 2010 collection, Slow and Steady Wins the Race. The design consisted of display stands that housed still life installations by artists and fashion world people working in New York. Here is a quick shot of one of the stands that I took on my phone. The whole endeavor was cheap, fast, and fly by night, with a focus on producing something subtle and elegant within the atmosphere of the brand.
Here's a shot of two of our large scale drawings just prior to the opening of our exhibition at the Land of Tomorrow Gallery.
I’ve always liked the installation, Maximillian’s Schell, but I gained a newfound respect for it after hanging out with designer Benjamin Ball of Ball Nogues and seeing the process and detail that went into the design.

We’re working with our friend Lars Jan to design and build a site-specific performance and installation piece at the Whitney Museum as part of the upcoming retrospective Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe. The above image is kind of a teaser, but also strongly related to design ideas we’re exploring for the project. The installation opens in September, so more to come very soon.
