Jade, the much-anticipated new condo-pod collaboration of Jade Jagger, John Hitchcox and Philippe Starck (with a little Shvo on the side), gets the Triple Mint workover today. Says TM: "Jade Jagger and interior designer Tom Bartlett seem to have been influenced here by a cool Mediterranean style that gives this a slightly exotic feel compared to all the minimal modernism going around--more Ibiza than Manhattan."
Meanwhile, the free-standing pods that form the core of each of the 57 two-bedroom apartments look like "polished jewel boxes when closed." We were having a hard time getting our minds around this until we cranked up the volume at the Jade NY official website. Totally makes sense now.
