"To make the 'spool stool,' recycled plywood spools, carved into serrated pinwheels were placed at either end while a robot—named Sulla—spun woven micro-cord thread in a hyperbolic fashion around their perimeter," describes Jason Sayer in The Architect's Newspaper.

Join civic leaders, urbanists, policy makers, designers and artists for Design Trust’s 2017 Art + Design Benefit Auction on November 1 at Dune Studios. The gala evening features a spirited silent auction showcasing the phenomenal talents of emerging and established artists and designers in NYC, while investing in our collective stake in democratic public space.

Show your support for the Design Trust and ensure NYC's public realm remains PUBLIC FOR ALL. Come celebrate with us our receipt of the 2017 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Corporate and Institutional Achievement.

All proceeds support the Design Trust for Public Space, a nonprofit organization who unlocks the potential of NYC's public space.


MoMA’s Young Architects Program invites a new designer to transform their courtyard in Long Island City, Queens each summer, and Ithaca-based Jenny Sabin Studio has created the latest installation: a glowing, mist-spraying canopy that looks a bit like an alien spider den.
