Use Me

Next up for Design Week, Use Me. The American Design Club is holding its 6th show, “an exhibition by 45 young American designers of unapologetically functional objects, each of which exhibits a strong sense of purpose, intelligent use of materials, and the ability to do one thing extremely well.” The list of designers showing is pretty impressive, I’m honored to be among them.

I will be showing the Secret Passageway Switch, and it will be for sale.

swissmiss Article

This image is from an article in a Swiss newspaper. I have no idea what the article actually says, but it is about Tina Roth Eisenberg (better know as swissmiss). So I can all but guarantee, that it is a gushing article filled with nothing but incredible things to say about an amazing person. For those of you who don’t already know (all two of you probably), Tina is a blogger extraordinaire, a fantastic designer, and a bringer together-er of people.

If you can read Swiss, here is the full article.

Oh and what’s that in the top right corner? I’m just saying.

American Design Club: Purpose and Worth Show

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

I was at the AmDC’s Purpose and Worth show last night at DSW Flatiron. The show had some great pieces in it. The highlights for me were seeing one of Lindsey Adelman’s chandeliers in person (they are incredible), Leon Ransmeier’s glass coin bank (I want one), and Karl Zahn’s Pallet Mirror (what a great use of material).

The pieces are still at DWR today, I recommend checking it out if you get the chance.

The Yiddish Policemen's Union

I’m currently reading The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon. And I’ve never had so many people stare at my book on the subway before. They can’t take their eyes off of the cover. Good work Will Staehle. The book is pretty good, but (according to the crazy lady on the 6 train) not nearly as good as Kavalier and Clay.

By the way, the inside jacket is just as cool.

BRKLYN Designs

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

I was at BRKLYN Designs this weekend. There were some great pieces there.

I met Hugh Hayden (nice guy), designer of these great ball-pit ball chairs. He had a piece in Hue Are You? as well.

My favorite piece though was by uhuru. They took a new pass at one of their signature pieces, the Stoolen.

Stoolen by uhuru

The original Stoolen is scrap wood beautifully formed into a cylinder with a found bicycle rim holding it all together. uhuru’s latest is the Metal Stoolen. Made of leftover steel lengths arranged in a similar pattern. The steel fills up the empty space of the wooden Stoolen. Beautiful design, way to keep working on a great idea.
