Hey design lovers! It’s time to put your design sleuth skills to the test to win over $700 in awesome Brooklyn-made prizes in Inhabitat’s BKLYN Design Finds Scavenger Hunt!

You can play online (without ever setting foot at the BKLYN Designs show), or in person at the live event this weekend in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Follow the clues below to hunt for six points of interest around the show and post an image on social media using the hashtag #INHABIFINDS.* And for those of you playing virtually, check out THIS POST and use the clues to find the corresponding photos and post them on your choice of social media* (Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter or Facebook), using the hashtag #INHABIFINDS.

The first person at the show to post all 6 finds will win a $100 By Brooklyn gift basket full of BKLYN made treats + a custom $50 Fahz 3D printed-vase modeled after your own face (you can also add 3 other faces – makes a great gift for Mother’s Day!). Two additional winners who complete the hunt by the end of the day will also take home $75 By Brooklyn gift baskets, Fahz vases, and eight runners-up will receive mini Fahz vases. All winners will also get their choice of Inhabitat T-shirt. That means there are 11 chances to win, so the odds are good if you’re a good detective!

THE GRAND PRIZES
Have you ever wanted to immortalize your loved ones’ faces? Nick and Martha Desbiens from Desbiens Design Research embarked on an ingenious new project that allows customers to create custom 3D-printed vases based on photos of their family members. The team converts your facial profile photo into vector geometry to create a seamless 3D model that ends in sculptural form. The idea was born after Nick embarked on an overly ambitious Mother’s Day gift for Martha, and his grand idea soon took the shape of an enterprise after a successful launch on Kickstarter. Now just in time for this year’s Mother’s Day, you’ve got the chance to win a few life-like renderings of yourself for Mom (or any other faces she adores).
Dedicated only to the finest, locally-produced goods, By Brooklyn is a one-stop-shop for artisan-crafted gifts all made by Brooklynites. Their selection of hand-curated gift boxes showcase the best goodies from the beloved borough, including artisanal food, housewares, apothecary, jewelry and apparel. Celebrate the best of Brooklyn with this exclusive gift set!
Inhabitat’s super soft and comfortable T-shirts will inspire you with the tagline “I am the root of the solution”. These one-of-a-kind tees showcase Inhabitat reader-designed printed on fabric that’s about as environmentally friendly as a shirt can get, made with 100% US grown organic cotton and water-based, eco-friendly inks (with zero ‘plastisol’ which most screen-printed T-shirts use), hand-printed in Brooklyn! All our winners will get their choice of T-shirt.
Happy hunting everyone!
