Greenpoint design conference part 1
I'm very excited to announce that we will host our very first "greenpoint design conference" saturday, oct. 25th and nov.1st from 6-8pm featuring six amazing local designers. In a casual setting designers will share their thoughts, process and work.
This saturday Oct. 25th:
Sarah Magid Cakes: The woman behind the amazing "Golden Twinkees"
Andreea Avram Rusu: Sublime lighting design
Llubav Choy Duerr: Combining her background in textile, surface and interior design, her love of fashion, and a personal aesthetic of art as visual feast, Llubav seeks to brighten your day with her stitched-felt stationary, hand-crafted fashion accessories, and ornate home adornments. After spending the first ten years of her life in the small fishing village that is Chimbote, Peru, Llubav left her native land on a journey that would take her – after a two year sojourn in Mexico – to Herndon, Virginia, and then New York City. Heavily influenced by the vibrant cultures of Latin America, and professionally trained at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Llubav uses Hungarian wool felt, American wool, filigree, and vintage embellishments to produce creations that are as unique and colorful as her upbringing. Llubav lives in Brooklyn and can be contacted at email@example.com.
Screech Owl Design: Refined stationary, homewares and art
Joey Roth: The unique and handsome teapot
Oblik Atelier/ Mia Hebib: Limited edition exquisite jewelry design
Toast the evening in support of local design!
A contribution of $15 suggested. The wine's on us!
