Gallery: Inhabitat Reports from BKLYN Designs

We were intrigued by RockPaperRobot's uncanny coffee table that appeared to consist of cubes floating right in the air! Upon further inspection, we saw that the pieces were held together by a series of thin wires. What an illusion!

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!

The Inhabiteam does a quick group huddle before splitting up and conquering the show.

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.
