Roma Amor

The Fendi Roma Amor collection debuted with a store take-over in Miami Design District in the spring of 2019.

Stand and Build was instrumental in outfitting the store with a unique build-out made up of arches, tunnels and groovy curves.

We installed custom shelves and fabricated walls of fanned-out polycarbonate panels that were LED-lit from behind. We also built and spray finished several curved clothing racks to match the bright color way of the vinyl. Our team installed it all on site in Miami.

31 Nights of Halloween

Saks Fifth Avenue celebrated 31 Nights of Halloween with some spooky Hocus Pocus-themed window displays.

We crafted the extra large spell book with hand stitched faux leather and a hand painted green eyeball. The custom backdrop was built to support videos of blinking cat eyes that we animated in-house.

The windows were on display for the entire month of October for themed events with other brands.

Daniel Buren with Bortolami Gallery

Stand and Build has worked with Daniel Buren for multiple exhibitions over the years at Bortolami Gallery in New York City and in Miami for Bortolami’s programming initiative “Artist / City.”

Precision is vital because Buren repeats the exact same stripe motif in all his pieces.

Cautious to call his work “installation,” the Parisian conceptual artist blurs the line between art and architecture by activating a space and inviting the architecture to become part of the artwork.

Iconic Handbags

Coinciding with their 2019 first floor redesign, Saks unveiled Iconic Handbags with larger than life handbags sculptures in 17 windows on Fifth Avenue.

We undertook this project first by 3D scanning and CNC routing each of the bags and making detailed technical drawings of each window display.

Using the meticulous painting skills of our team, we applied several faux marble finishes to the bags and added details such as clasps and chains that we laser cut and sculpted. Each of the different window displays were test fitted with the mounted handbags in our studio before our team installed all 17 windows over the course of a few days and nights.

Penetrables at Galerie Lelong

For the first time in New York, the multi-sensorial installations of Hélio Oiticica, an influential Brazilian sculptor and installation artist, were installed at Galerie Lelong.

Stand and Build worked directly with the estate of the artist to build his “Penetrables” to meticulous specifications.

Oiticica’s work relies on viewer interaction and experience so functionality and durability of these sculptures was of utmost importance. In one piece, viewers could move the bright yellow panels to activate the work.

Harry's Grand Central Kiosk

Harry’s, the men’s grooming supplies startup, asked us to customize a Grand Central Station kiosk for the 2015 holiday season.

They came to us with an aesthetic inspired by newsstands from the 1920s and 30s.

We engineered their design to fit within the parameters of the freestanding kiosk structure and featured a beautiful marble countertop and white oak drawer storage below.

Bonobos Brick and Mortar

The focus of the Bonobos Guideshops is to provide a highly personalized customer experience. The shopper is fitted onsite for clothing before placing an order that ships to their home.

In collaboration with Reform Creative, we helped Bonobos transition from ecommerce to a 1,500 square foot brick and mortar in SoHo.

We began the process with material sampling, prototyping and surveying the raw space. The end result featured patinaed steel and sapele wood fixtures for the dressing rooms with cheeky labels.

Mastering the Metropolis: New York and Zoning, 1916-2016

In 2016, Stand and Build created the display structures for an exhibition about New York zoning on New York’s historic Museum Mile.

It marked the occasion of the 100th anniversary of America’s first comprehensive zoning resolution that was essential in creating New York City’s neighborhoods and iconic skyline.

In collaboration with MGMT., we built a dynamic system of steel trusses with adjustable feet for the walls, ceiling, and floor to give structure to the flow of the exhibition. These painted steel mesh walls and delicately finished baltic birch panels, as well as custom pedestals and vitrines, were the backdrops for the exhibition’s artifacts, maps, photographs, and signage.
