After a busy Tuesday morning at the studio, I stepped out to have a quick glance at NY Now design market that rounds up at the Javits Center this week: for a new installment of fresh design talent from around the world. A casual visitor is challenged to grasp a common theme this year, but, as I took a moment to speak to a number of industry specialists and designers, one interesting observation stood still,  — every studio is struggling not to bore the customer. Here’re some of my favorite pieces at the show this year.

IMG_2073Tea pot by Kinto is a reinterpretation of the classic pot with Japanese charm.

I've been exploring cities and neighborhoods for as long as I remember myself, documenting my observations and discoveries with photographs and in my journals. This mindful wondering has inspired and greatly fueled my design and research work, parts of which I'm sharing in this journal. Drop me a line at editor@arthurious.com
