Set designer Stefan Beckman gathered all manner of warm weather items for the shop, which he dubbed Heatwave. “It’s the best of what Barneys has to offer for the summer,” Beckman said. “There’s a bit of everything. That’s the way people shop now.”“We’ve taken the entire front section of the home area. It was important to really make an impact and that it wasn’t a tiny area,” he said. Building on the theme, Beckman painted a table yellow and featured Thomas Fuchs blue and white dinner plates, $18; which can be packed up and taken on a picnic.
Beckman, who’s been doing set design since the late Nineties, recently worked with Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director of women’s collections, to prepare the TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport for the brands’ cruise collection show. “Nicolas wanted to fill the space with plants and make it look like they took over the whole space,” Beckman said. “There were vines and plants everywhere, and we created a plant wall outside to make it feel like it was one world.”
Beckman’s career has evolved to include fashion shoots with photographers such as Steven Meisel. “I got a call from Marc Jacobs and started working with him on his shows,” Beckman said. “It started another part of my career. I want to do anything that’s creative and interesting, whether it’s a pop-up or a show or a shoot.”
