neocon | wrap-up

These past 3 days have come and gone and so has NeoCon, The Worlds Trade Fair, at the Merchandise Mart. Roughly 50-60,000 designers/reps/architects flock to see what's new in the contract (commercial) world of design. I headed over there on Monday with my friend Mary Welch and met up with some fellow Houston reps and old co-workers from Houston. I hit the Guerilla Truck Show @ Fulton Market yesterday and got completely soaked due to the rain so I didn't take any pictures but be sure to hop over to Core 77 and check out Lisa Smith's (fellow Houstonian/industrial designer that I met and co-founder/runs the amazing Object Design League here in Chicago) wrap-up on the show along with photos. The truck show was amazing! It was my first time to go and it is filled with transformed U-Haul trucks into mini designer showrooms. Showrooms on wheels really. Pretty amazing stuff coming out of Chicago designers! NeoCon is always pretty overwhelming/exciting as it's jam packed with people and product. Traversing The Merchandise Mart is no easy task either, poor Mary Welch and her 4" heels! Anyways, here are some pics from the show.

What a great event! Thanks for showing us. Are those LED lights in the wall in some of the shots?


Thank you Annie! Those little glowing squares are actually metal panels in front of windows with squares punched through them. What you are seeing is daylight. Pretty amazing huh? We can thank Houston based Architect/Interior Designer Lauren Rottet for that one!
