We knew that we’d stumbled across something special when we visited the Bower  booth, and we guess other BKLYN Designs-goers agreed because they voted the Williamsburg-based duo up to the #1 spot in our Readers’ Choice competition . Danny Giannella and Tammer Hijazi’s magnetic Polaris lamp scored points for being made of salvaged wood and also for its funky aesthetic and flexible design.
As you can see, Danny and Tammer were really excited about receiving their prize package!
We have to admit that at first, we were surprised to see an architecture firm with a booth at a home furnishings show, but after learning more about Garrison Architects, we think their participation in BKLYN Designs makes perfect sense. The DUMBO-based firm really impressed us with their design and build-out of 37 new flood-proof, prefab beach buildings  for Rockaway Beach, Coney Island, Midland Beach, Wolfe’s Pond Park and Cedar Grove that will replace the ones destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. The structures were all created to be modular so that they could be completed in time for Memorial Day 2013, and they will also be net-zero energy. Kudos to Garrison Architects  for this major accomplishment!
Congratulations to both of our Brooklyn-grown winners and if you missed the other nominees, click here  to see them all.
