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 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.
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.
Another 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.com
