Dwell on Design

We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Dwell on Design exhibition this past weekend. We chatted with really nice designers and shopowners, saw some great new products and prototypes, and our peek inside some cool prefab abodes made us want a little patch of land with our very own Airstream.

We've included a few photos here, and we'll be blogging more exhibitors and products over the next few days -- including this Christopher Deam-designed prefab dwelling.

Oh, and if you just can't wait, check out the Dwell on Design video. (Thanks, mod*mom!)

Branch imported these wool light strings ($188) from Germany (they're lovely in person). They're not on the website because they only have half a dozen -- but if you're interested, contact them here

This great folding aluminum desk is from Tim George at Iowa's Fusion Furniture ($1400)

Here's the desk, folded up

Modern Bamboo's bench/table prototype

And a prototype for a mirror, also from Modern Bamboo

Modern Bamboo's custom bench (you can also see people trying out the Spring Chairs -- they're so comfortable, and everyone intuitively tests out the gentle rocking motion)
