NY Design Week 2011: Day One

NoHo is oh-so-hip, with lots of design happenings to check out this week. If you're in New York, a trip to Great Jones Street is a damn good bet. From The Future Perfect to Sight Unseen's pop-up shop to the American Design Club's Use Me exhibit (and more!), there's lots of great stuff to see. Click through to the slideshow to see a few of our favorite things.

Designer Matt Gagnon (and his pal, Gorman) plan on making 40 Prototype lamps in the window at The Future Perfect this weekend, using an established system that can, ultimately, result in "endlessly variable" incarnations. Gagnon selected a variety of materials—surgical wire, cotton twine, etc.—that he'll wind around different shapes (you can see two examples on either side of this pic). He hopes to have five that he likes enough to put into production by the end of the process.
