After a day of touring some of the offsite events in Manhattan, we headed to the Meatpacking District to check out the string of events revolving around the 414 Gallery on West 14th Street. After stopping there for snow-cones and chocolate biscuits, we visited Studio Dror at Yigal Azrouel, Bond BeLow Tech at the Milk Gallery and the annual after party at Shadi and Company's wedge shaped rooftop studio, where we met the designers behind Playful: Finnish Design.
