Visitors to the show were greeted by a sculpture of cascading chairs by Uhuru and a live Twitter feed of what people were tweeting about the event!

Uhuru took Best in Show in our green design awards for their amazing Coney Island line of furniture. Each limited edition piece was crafted from actual wood reclaimed from the boardwalk of the iconic Brooklyn landmark.

This ingenious chair designed by Pratt student Charlotte Kreitmann is called “Schair” because it transforms into a loveseat bench perfect for fitting two!

Inhabitat fave Hugh Hayden and colleague Katie Vitale’s eye-catching Frameicarium ant farm artpieces stole the show with their unique concept. They featured real ants behind vibrantly colored plexiglass inside reclaimed antique frames.

We couldn’t help but be blown away by the understated beauty of Andre Joyau’s natural wood furniture. Not only are his pieces made of reclaimed wood that would otherwise have gone to waste, each piece has its own unique story – many of which are documented by Joyau’s beautiful photographs displayed right alongside his tables and chairs.
