Allez Design! NYC's Iron Designer
- This week marks the return of the Stockholm Furniture Fair, the largest annual design event in the Nordic part of the world.
Parsons The New School for Design is partnering with the Danish Design Centre and Consulate General of Denmark to present Danish Design Review New York: "Living the Legacy—Designing the Future." This event is free and open to the public.
This daylong symposium will feature presentations by eight young designers from Denmark—the winners and nominees of the Danish Design Award 2012—who will be led through a design review by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art. The designers will present their work in a moderated discussion with Rama Chorpash, Director of Product Design at Parsons and Nille Juul Sorenson, Director of the Danish Design Centre in Copenhagen.
The symposium will also include a presentation of the current restoration of the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the United Nations, designed by Danish architect and designer Finn Juhl.
Dreams Happen is a biennial fundraising event benefiting Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP) and hosted by Stanford Shopping Center. The event teams local architects and builders in the construction of unique and elaborately designed life-size children’s playhouses. The playhouses are then auctioned at the Dreams Happen Gala -- all under the stars at Stanford Shopping Center. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised through the auction of the playhouses benefits Rebuilding Together Peninsula. Since its inception in 1993, Dreams Happen has raised more than 2 million dollars for Rebuilding Together Peninsula.
Dwell has teamed up this year with architect Jonathan Davis of pieceHomes ® and builder Will Capper of Icon Fine Homes to build our very own Dwell playhouse! Come and see Dwell's Playhouse Little "e" on display at the Stanford Shopping Center now through June 12, 2009. It is a three dimensional spatial experience for children (and fun loving adults) and gives the opportunity to discover space and form with places to climb through, over, within, and under.
