Lisa Eisner has created installations at Structure Nomade — the prefab space designed by French architect Jean Prouvé — at Maxfield in Los Angeles, as well as Salon 94 Gallery and E.R. Butler & Co. in NYC.

”It’s not just a bunch of jewelry in a cabinet,” Eisner says. “For me, it’s so much about collaboration.” She tapped her friend and frequent collaborator Roman Alonso of Commune to help conceive how the jewelry would be displayed. “How do you not interfere with this structure and do something respectful?” he asks. To answer this question, Alonso designed wood vitrines, painted Yves Klein blue, and suspended them from overhead beams by thick leather straps. “It’s the densest, most delicious blue,” Eisner says. “You just want to swim in it.” The matching blue horsetails that hang from the bottom of the boxes were Eisner’s find. “She’s the hunter,” Alonso says. “Always have to add a little cowboy,” Eisner adds.”
