Don’t look to the skies, but the iconic brand Chanel will temporarily be touching down in Central Park, NY with a traveling art pavilion known as MOBILE ART . At the request of Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfeld, the futuristic spaceship like structure was created by architect Zaha Hadid of London, and will house the works of 20 international contemporary artists who will exhibit their works inspired by the staple quilt bag that has given Chanel it’s unique identity. The challenge was to make the 7,500-square-foot structure visually compelling, and could also be transported with ease. The material consists of light weight panels that can easily be packed into 51 shippable containers. The traveling project will have free entry to all and will circulate for the next 2 years in Asia, United States, & Europe. An event we’re looking forward to! Back after the jump.

EXHIBITION: Oct. 20 to Nov. 9
