One exhibition sees the worlds of fashion and design collide

Inspired by Venice’s grappling with acqua alta – the perilous flooding that takes place with regularity – Virgil Abloh is presenting a series of furniture pieces that sit meticulously, beautifully askew. Abloh’s collection is part of Dysfunctional, an exhibition taking place at Carpenters Workshop Gallery as part of Venice Biennale, which began last month. If Abloh’s creations aren’t intriguing enough to make you want to hop on a plane to Venezia – or to get to the nearest IKEA to explore his collaboration with the Swedish brand – Dysfunctional also features works by Kendall Geers, Rick Owens and Michele Lamy.
