This year at BKLYN Designs, manufacturer and design house RAM Metals and its subsidiaries (Tides, Planter Worx and Raine Heidenberg Interior Design) put forth a strong selection of expertly crafted metal furniture and planters.
Top: Crankenstein. Bottom: Tides Chair.
The work stood out from the crowd by placing an emphasis on faceted and sculptural forms. They also had a very eye-catching centerpiece (an adjustable height table built around an elaborate mechanism) that the designer playful referred to as "crankenstein."
Their Shard Planter Bench (pictured top) was of particular note, as its pointed and slender features, inspired by ocean jettys, shifted dynamically as you walk around it. Also featured was a new chair released under their outdoors line, Tides. The chair, made of white powder-coated aluminum, reinforced their fascination with atypical geometry executed with an attention to cleanliness.
