We love being on hand for spring design shows because they offer rare up close and personal access to the designers we mostly admire from afar the rest of the year. Last year, we were fortunate enough to score some face time with FUNature creator Hugh Hayden at BKLYN Designs. In between bounces in his playful chairs, we listened as Hayden discussed everything from the short lifespan of a tennis ball to how he sources the unconventional materials that inspired his latest collection to his plans for future designs.
