DESIGN: Stonehill Taylor
ARTISTS: Collection includes Eun Young Choi, Yun-Fe Ji, Antonio Murado, Mike and Douglas Starn
ROLE: Curator of art collection
When Drs. Nolan Karp and Mihye Choi, plastic surgeons in Manhattan, considered the design of their new offices, they wanted the space to reflect the artistic approach they took to their work. Karp and Choi needed their space to be functional and comfortable for patients coming to them for cosmetic or reconstructive procedures, but they also wanted it bright, loft-like and filled with art. SRFA developed a collection of commissions and installations that used themes and motifs from nature to uplift and transport patients elsewhere. A large-scale, immersive work by Antonio Murado with the Starn Twins provides an environment that is sensitive of and soothing to patients’ experiences and challenges.
