Model Citizens NYC returned for their second year showcasing furniture, objects, and jewelry from 40+ young designers. Located in an amazing raw loft space with huge skylights half a block from the ICFF, they were able to enjoy a constant stream of visitors making their way to and from the Javits Center.
The stand out piece of the show was Jason Neufeld's super smooth operating Floor (to ceiling) lamp which is pictured after the jump. The suspended lamp shade is counter-balanced with a polished plumb-bob that can gently be raised or lowered to adjust the ambient light.
The work varied quite a lot in style from the Guyana Project furniture to the one-liner iconic ironic gestures. There was really something for everyone, and this year's exhibition shop was a little larger in scale with 100% of all sales going to the designernice!
