With a proclivity towards the minimalist, chic and slightly surreal, designer duo Christian Swafford and Lauren Larson, otherwise known as Material Lust, opened a showroom called The Annex earlier this year on the Lower East Side. In November, they’re inviting fellow designer Alex P. White to conjure a temporary environment that’s sure to be a bit magical; his inspirations are part Louise Nevelson, New York nightlife and ’80s New Wave. On the 17th, they open their first West Coast show, a presentation hosted by JF Chen and Bianca Chen. Material-Lust.com
