Following a series of stagings in downtown Los Angeles, the latest Parachute Market, a biannual design fair devoted to Los Angeles-based creators and collectors, moves to the 34,000-square foot JF Chen showroom Sept. 19-21.
"In a world full of disposable objects, enduring design is an important subject." said Friend. "'Ever Present' explores the question of what makes an object timeless by showing the treasures of those who collect and preserve historical design alongside those who refer to it and make it new through their own work."
Parachute Market, JF Chen Showroom, 1000 N. Highland Ave., Los Angeles. A "first access" preview limited to 75 tickets will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 19. Regular market hours: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 20-21. Early access tickets are $65 online. General admission is $10 and $12 at the door.
