New York Design Week 2011

I wished I known of this event earlier. Not sure what I would've done. Blogged it earlier? Sounds like it was a great tribute to Tobias Wong who died last year. It's surprising how few people know of Wong. That ain't right. I have a feeling, a monogram will be published and many people will discover his surprising gifts posthumously. That day can't come soon enough. 

Below is the post from Core77's blog. Follow the links for more information and images.

Last night the New York design community was out in full force to support the opening of BrokenOff BrokenOff, a tribute show to friend and colleague Tobias Wong. The show was a celebration of Wong's work, life and the lasting influence of his witty and irreverent perspective on design.
Last week we learned about how the show came about when speaking with Marc Thorpe; David Weeks and Brad Ascalon gave us insight on the inspiration behind their tributes while Josee Lepage shared personal memories over years of collaborating with Tobias. And after being there to document the installation of "Die," we were excited to see Frederick McSwain's piece in its complete form. Check out more party pics after the jump!
