bklyn designs 2009: video tour, part 1

this year’s bklyn designs was the best it has been in years. i was fortunate to be on the judging panel this year and i really felt like the show as a whole listened to those of us calling for newer, edgier and more innovative design. this year’s show was smaller than previous years but i spent a good two days walking around, taking pictures, and filming video clips with my favorites from the show.

so today, in addition to sharing images from the show, i’m kicking things off with two videos of my favorite pieces. and just to save everyone some typing, i’ve included links below to the designers featured in the video above. want to watch things full sized? click here to watch the bklyn designs part 1 video on youtube.
