Why we loved it…
The sheer volume and variation of innovation and artistry in one space. NEW INC offers a cutting-edge platform for creatives to work together under one roof through different mediums spanning art, design and technology, their concepts of which are debuted at Red Bull Studios New York.

A must-see work? Check out “LUMA” from Lisa Park and Kevin Siwoff – an interactive, sound-responsive light sculpture that resembles a cluster of “sea urchins.” The sculpture is made from millions of fiber optic strands and illuminating LED panels when activated by sound.

The Gift Shop – Located on the basement level, The Gift Shop is a collaborative project with Alldayeveryday, which draws inspiration from a traditional museum gift shop, but pushes its boundaries with the idea of product versus artwork.
