NDD began with a terrific Press Preview at The Standard, East Village showcasing designers on two floors. By noon photographers and writers were spreading throughout NoHo and The Bowery stopping at Environment Furniture (352 Bowery) showcasing Emily Rothchild’s precious archival gift boxes; The Merchants House Museum (29 East 4th St.), where Paul Loebach, Kyle Garner and Colgate Searle have blended contemporary with the antique.
The Future Perfect (55 Great Jones), oneof several locations featuring Lindsey Adelman’s incredible artistry of lights and light-reflecting objects – don’t miss her show at The Bowery Hotel, either. At 22 Bond St. there is a slew of talent including Areaware, DMY Berlin Products – but we’ll cover them tomorrow.
Completely Bare (25 Bond St.) is displaying a novel hydroponic planting display and the Bleecker St. Theater (45 Bleecker) has Brit John Dixon with a tour de force of lighting and new designs.But, most of all enjoy. Celebrate the new and the old and the in-between NoHo and The Bowery wrapped into one.
