kicked off their second charity event last night in the SoHo, opening their doors to a queued-up crowd eager to snatch up some of the exclusive designs featured in Reclaim's new Sandy Storm relief charity event, Reclaim x2: Design That’s More Than the Sum of Its Parts
. Organized by writer Jennifer Krichels Gorsche
and Designer Pages
‘ Editor-in-chief Jean Lin, Reclaim x2 called for designers across NYC to pair up and create works inspired by the idea of collaboration. More than 50 designers joined forces and together they yielded beautiful and unique works that ranged from colorful, convertible tents to stunning handcrafted wood bowls to beautiful blown glass objects with an industrial bent. Check out some of the top designs from the show in the gallery below, and if you’re interested in purchasing something for yourself, several of the pieces featured here are still available at Lin Morris
. Proceeds from sales go to local Hurricane Sandy relief through the Brooklyn Recovery Fund
Brad Ascalon & Angel Naula
Glide Ottoman (Time Capsule Edition)
This piece features a core of reclaimed magazines that replace a conventional wood frame. The idea behind the piece is that many years from now, when print is a thing of the past, this “capsule” has recorded a moment in time from our generation for a future generation to one day discover.
Kevin Michael Burns & Adam Pellecchia
Hard Copy Coffee Table
This design combines Pellecchia’s graphic design and print experience and Burns’ contemporary furniture concept to create a low-fi, new-tech table. The design features a bleached oak top, copper and turned bleach oak legs and a digitally enhanced printed photo of the actual table surface veneered on the top.
Stéphane Hubert Design & Sean Brewer
