While in New York, we visited the Mondo Collection showroom, a company that is dedicated to bringing modern global design to the US, as well as collecting exceptional designs from up-and-coming designers. We got an exclusive tour of the space and had a great time speaking with Jaime Hayon and up-and-comer Jack Craig.
