A Russian artist on Etsy, Pavel Eekra, has designed two beautiful lamps undoubtedly inspired by the work of the Danish designer Paol Henningsen, especially his PH Artichoke Lamp from 1958, manufactured by Louis Poulsen.

Thanks to Crystal Murfitt who sent me the information on Eekra's lamp.

In "The Producers: A Movie Musical" (2005) the character of Roger DeBris (played by Gary Beach) dresses up in a ball gown that resembles the Chrysler Building.
Roger De Bris: Oh dear, your Mr. Bloom is staring at my gown. I should explain. I'm going to the choreographer's ball this evening. There is a prize for best costume.
Carmen Ghia: We always win.
Roger De Bris: I'm not so sure about this year. I'm supposed to be the Grand Dutchess Anastasia, but I think I look more like the Chrysler Building!
Thanks to Felicia Anderson for passing along the information and the photograph.
Perhaps the first version of the Chrysler Building as clothing, with William van Alen dressed as his building at the "Beaux-Arts Ball" in 1931.
My thanks to Dana Madris for passing along this information.
