“The items in Collection #2 range from a 150 million year old dinosaur fossil to contemporary commissions created exclusively for Chamber.” 

— ANDREW ZUCKERMAN

Collection #2 “Human | Nature” investigates the theme of how the natural world interacts with man's living environment. Andrew Zuckerman sought out objects that utilized or echoed materials, forms and rhythms found in the natural world.

The collection explores how nature interacts with the built environment and investigates how objects have a transformative effect on our lives.

Collection #2 “Progressland” completes Zuckerman's yearlong curatorial program with a focus on exploration, pioneering and innovation. While the first exhibition, “Human | Nature,” examined our origins, Collection #2 “Progressland” is an exploration of where we are going. Zuckerman says, “It’s not exactly about the next material we’ll use but the spirit of where we’re going, and the impulse to try new things and do things that haven’t been done before.” 

I / II


“All of the objects in “Progressland” reflect a kind of thrilling leap into the uncharted. The show is about the spirit that drives progress and the inquisitive minds that practice in this space,” says Zuckerman.

Collection #2

The Chamber

Chamber is a unique gallery, a 21st century cabinet of curiosities for one-of-a-kind, rare and limited edition objects of design and art. Founded in 2014 by Juan Garcia Mosqueda and located in New York City. The gallery aims to be a reliquary for unusual objects, as well as a platform for design expererimentation. As a central part of its program, an artist or designer is chosen to curate an entire collection, bringing their unique viewpoint to Chamber through specially commissioned works and rare and vintage items.

Collection #2

The Location

Chamber worked closely with MOS Architects to create a unique interior and marble display system 

 dsc7645 470 1090x0x2107x2802
In less than a decade, Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample have emerged as two of architecture’s most daring experimenters. Their New York City-based studio MOS is home to an unusually eclectic band of collaborators for whom new media technologies offer not simply better means of presentation, but rather become the radical tools necessary to create groundbreaking architecture. By exchanging plans and sections for software and film, MOS eschews the static forms of traditional architecture in favor of a working technique that is inventive and playful. In May 2015 Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum announced the winners of the National Design Award, and MOS Architects was selected to receive the "Architecture Design" award.

Chamber is at the ground floor of the famous HL23 building in West Chelsea, designed by world-renowned architect and theorist Neil Denari.
