We couldn't get to BKLYN DESIGNS this year, (why do they schedule it a week before ICFF, it makes coverage impossible for anyone but New Yorkers?), but Inhabitat did a terrific job of covering it like a blanket, and gave the Best of Show award to the Ecosystems Bada Table; I concur. This amazing transformer changes from a loveseat to a dining table in seconds; watch the animated GIF below the fold.
Their editors Choice award was appropriate too:
This fun and unexpected take on recycling by furniture designer Hugh Hayden is precisely why we named his enormously playful FUNATURE Tennis Ball Chair the winner of our BKLYN Designs Most Innovative Use of Materials Award. Not only is his choice of medium (297 repurposed tennis balls) smart and simple, it’s also fun and engaging.
Lots more at Inhabitat's roundup of BKLYN Designs- someone lend me a couch and next week I will come for both weekends.
