We’re absolutely gutted not to be at the Salone Del Mobile right now as it turns out this is the year that everyone is there (that’s right, EVERYONE). Among them is Jamie Wolfond, one of Brooklyn’s youngest and finest furniture designers, who’s there to launch his debut collection at Designersbloc. If last year’s display is anything to go by the whole Designersbloc show should be a treat, but Jamie’s work in particular is well worth the journey.
Since we last featured him on the site the young Brooklynite has been busy perfecting a selection of new designs including a clock made from printed vinyl stickers and a graded shelving unit that takes inspiration from traditional Quaker furniture and adds a contemporary twist by way of CNC-machined plastic. Both projects add polish and refinement to some of his previous endeavours but still maintain the same level of playful experimentation that drew us to his work in the first place. It’s also worth mentioning you can now buy all of Jamie’s products online from his shop. And quite frankly why wouldn’t you?
