We are busy preparing pieces from THE NEW for their voyage east to New York. Please join us May 15-18 at 350 Bowery to see, not only Jonathan Nesci’s work, but other talented young designers at Noho Next. Press release:
“In partnership with StyleFactory and Wabnitz Editions, the Noho Design District introduces its first annual emerging talent showcase: Noho Next, featuring the work of nine up-and-coming designers under one roof. The Brooklyn-based sustainable furniture studio Uhuru is showing its new Coney Island line, crafted in wood reclaimed from the demolition of the park’s iconic boardwalk. Washington, D.C.’s Jonah Takagi debuts a pendant lamp and flat-pack shelving inspired by bamboo scaffolding and Lincoln Logs. Jonathan Nesci will exhibit pieces from his recent show at Chicago’s Volume Gallery, while two young Spaniards — ceramicist Xavier Mañosa of Apparatu and graphic designer Alex Trochut — have collaborated to produce ceramic cocktail-themed floats from around the world and vases inspired by the ugliest jacket ever designed. Matthew Bradshaw and Sergio Silva are showing a new glass table floating on wooden legs, and Gregory Buntain introduces Sonderstuhl, an angular wood chair. Finally, Noah Packard’s Cantilever Sofa will help introduce the soon-to-launch e-tailer StyleFactory, which uses crowd-sourcing to develop furniture and home accessories for manufacture and sale.”
Hours will be 12-7 PM and the opening party is May 15th from 7-10 PM. JOIN US.
