March 11, 2011 — The Chicago Architecture Foundation, in partnership with Capital Properties and Metro / SmartBar, hosted an evening full of midcentury modern design at Chicago’s storied Inland Steel Building. Guests sipped on midcentury-inspired cocktails (neat or on the rocks?), relaxed in iconic Eames lounge chairs, and mingled with local artists, fashionistas, furniture designers, and architects. Deejays Kid Color, Nate Manic, and Bald Eicon set the mood throughout the night as guests danced against the backdrop of a downtown skyline. ICON was sponsored by Chicago Home + Garden, Herman Miller, Bacardi, and Hangar One. Proceeds benefited the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
