AIGA NY’s Talking Small, Thinking Big

hermanmillerbe.jpg

The fall series (oh gosh, can we really say ‘fall’ if it’s 95 outside?) of AIGA NY’s Small Talks kicks off on September 11 with a blockbuster of an event. Be/Seated features Felix Sockwell (designer of the unflappable banner you see above), Steve Frykholm of Herman Miller and Peter Bell, Creative Director of Fairly Painless Advertising. The three collaborated on the Herman Miller “Be” collection, which we got excited about here a few months back.

Now, should you want to be a truly dedicated NY design patron, be sure to buy a season pass to all the AIGA NY Small Talks, which are peppered with all sorts of big names like Tamara Shopsin and Christoph Niemann.

Designers We Like and the Stuff They Made

We just can’t get enough of Stefan Bucher‘s Daily Monsters. Now you’ll be able to not get enough of the blog-book-brand either with a Daily Monster messenger bag.

That’s just one of the offerings in Store344, and the best part is that 5% of the proceeds go to 826LA, who we hear Bucher is designing some top-secret products for…we can’t tell, but we can reveal that you might see them in the future.

Over at Tamara Shopsin‘s shop, Shopsin’s General Store, the uberwitty designer has created hand-sewn 16 Ton door stops.

The conversation pieces have curious origins, says Shopsin: “The door stop was inspired by a pattern found in the book Simple Sewing and the way ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’ ends sketches that have gone on too long.”
