Pictured above is a custom piece designed by EcoSytems for Ion Hair Salon, dubbed as New York’s first “eco-salon.” EcoSystems is one of many exhibitors featured at the 7th annual BKLYN DESIGNS™ show that was held from May 8 – 10, 2009, at St. Ann’s Warehouse, 38 Water Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. BKLYN DESIGNS 2009 also had a “green” exhibit at the Thermador, Bosch, Gaggenau Showroom and a children’s furniture off-site was featured at Jane’s Carousel. BKLYN DESIGNS™ is New York’s hottest exhibition of designers and manufacturers of contemporary furnishings, lighting, and accessories made and/or designed in Brooklyn, all handpicked by a jury of editors from leading design and shelter magazines. Founded in 2003, it has doubled its attendance in just six years, and has grown to include a diverse array of satellite exhibits and demonstrations, panel discussions, and keynote speakers. It won’t surprise me if the number of exhibitors doubles by next year as well.
