Matali Crasset is bringing her kooky brand of futurism to a windowless first-floor gallery at New York's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. To make her techno lounge glow, she's designed a floor-to-ceiling handblown glass fixture with clusters of micro-fluorescent tubes. Her seating integrates flat-screen TVs and DVDs. Individual pods with speakers and microphones will drop from a sort of hanging UFO. May 19–September 24; 212-849-8400; cooperhewitt.org.
