View Slideshow

Here are the pieces we thought represented some of the best:


Unified dining table from Min Hoo Park. I did not take a picture of this and I am kicking myself for not doing so because it was an amazing sight. It has a detachable tray and everything is built right into it, including a small candelabra. Contact: minhoopark [at]

Urbancase’s first aid bar:

Camilla Meijer textiles were just fantastic. The color combinations knocked my socks off. She is an illustrator, and her line work is just exquisite.

Favorite Booth: Pratt’s Design for A Dollar, which included some fantastic designs by students all made from $1 worth of materials, a reflection of the challenges of a beaten economy.
