If you’re in New York City this weekend for the ICFF, we’d like to remind you about our Reclaiming Design event at HauteGreen this afternoon. You can’t miss the HauteGREEN show, so why not combine a visit to the exhibition with a visit to our event, which features Dutch design icon Tejo Remy, Dwell Editor Sam Grawe, and Brooklyn designers Carlos Salgado of Scrapile and Matt Gagnon to speak about recycling in design. Reclaiming Design is this afternoon at 5pm, so come by and check it out!
Moderated by us (Jill Fehrenbacher and Emily Pilloton), the panel will discuss the use of recycled and reclaimed materials in the design process and the implications for both concept and environmentalism. Seating is limited and we need a head count, so if you are interested in attending, PLEASE RSVP TO ReclaimingDesign (at) gmail (dot) com.
WHEN: Sunday MAY 20th 5pm
WHERE: HAUTEGREEN exhibition at gallery in NYC’s Union Square: 33 West 19th St, between 5th & 6th ave
WHAT: Reclaiming Design will be a four person panel discussion on the subject of recycling & reclamation in design. Each speaker will give a short presentation of their work, followed by moderated audience Q&A.
WHO: Sam Grawe, Editor-in-Chief of Dwell Magazine Tejo Remy, Furniture Designer, Droog Carlos Salgado, Furniture Designer, Scrapile Matt Gagnon, Architect & Furniture Designer
*Just to give you all a heads up – there is a requested donation for the HauteGREEN show of $10. Donation is optional, but please remember that this is a non-profit organization, and we are all volunteering a lot of our time (and carrying a lot of the expenses for the show on our personal credit cards), so donation would be very much appreciated. And it gets you a year long subscription to Good Magazine, so its win-win for all.
