A+R Owners at DoD 2009

Dwell has a new section called Design Finder, which premieres soon in our May 2009 issue and will come to life in June at Dwell on Design 2009. For the magazine and the show, we pick our favorite design stores and ask their owners how the stores were started, what their criteria are for choosing a product to sell, what item they’re currently longing for, and more.

Propellor Design's Furrow Parkade light is made from laminated bamboo, with grooves carved at perpendicular angles to create beautiful patterns and shadows. Because the material comes from a rapidly renewable resource, the lamp also falls into the enviro category (just use a CFL and remember to switch it off).
