Sight Unseen Presents Noho Next Design.

19 May

The Noho Design fair tends to bring new designers and objects into the world presenting in various locations in the Noho (North of Houston) neighborhood. The selection of work at 45 Bleeker street is meant to highlight new designers. There were a few gems in this space presented by Sight Unseen and  Jawbone.Misha Kahn Table  Misha Kahn was showing a neon table, a shingled chest of semi-functioning drawers (you have to decide if you want the cabinet open or not) and porcelain bubble lamps.  He is a recent recipient of a Fulbright scholarship,  a graduate of RISD and working on his Masters in Design from the Bezalel Academy in Israel.  Misha Kahn Drawers

Eric Trine, the Portland based self described “Maker of Things” created a vignette that reminded me of the pictures in the old photo albums of my grandparents.  I really love geometric wire plant stands which are available at Poketo in Los Angeles.

Eric TrineAnother new addition to the design world is Caitlin Mociun.  She is a jewelry and textile designer based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Among other things, she was showing these triangle pillows which are perfect to rest your tired little wrists from all that mouse clickage.  Check out her store and website at Mociun.comCaitlin Mociun

Noho Design “Marbelles” by Guillaume Sasseville

19 May Marble Dumbbell

This week is NYC Design WeekICFF, Wanted Design and Noho Design all run fairs in tandem.  I had the opportunity to visit 2 Bond Street, a temporary store and space that is showing new design objects in the Noho Design District.  One of the objects I found most interesting are these “Marbelles.” They are solid marble dumbbell weights created by Guillaume Sasseville, a French-Canadian designer based in Montreal. Marble Dumbbell The weights each are around 5lbs, and will be inscribed with 2kg etchings on the end.  Sasseville collaborated with Josee Lepage of BondToo after she saw a table he made of marble which is on view at the Wanted Design Fair this week.  She thought, “wouldn’t it be cool if this were even smaller, like a dumbbell?”  They haven’t quite determined a price yet, but the dumbbells will run you around $2,000.sssvll---2bond-may17to21-dumbbells-b_v4
