Model Citizens at Exit Art - NY Design Week 2009

During Design Week 2009 (which centers on the International Contemporary Furniture Fair), a great satellite show took place at Exit Art.

Called Model Citizens, the show featured work by some 30 independent designers committed to building a sustainable business community. Here are some highlights:

The (mostly young hip) crowd mingles and peruses.

Discovering the Egg Bench by Grace E. Chen. (No website.)

Ceramic sacks by Zena Verda Pesta.

Tea tables cum see-saws by Kandice Levero (Non e Justo). The video on the website is really cool.

Bomb lamps and gun cabinets by JGreen Design.

Paper plate lamp and installation by Nathan Thomas Studios.

More crowd. Place was packed. I didn't stay long. But the vibe was very exciting and I'm looking forward to next year!
