Persimmon: Lighting by Gian Calaci
Design Within Reach Austin Studio presented the winners of M+D+F 2009, a juried exhibition of new and exciting designs by emerging designers from the Austin area. The judges for M+D+F were Liz Lambert, hotelier; Jack Sanders, founder of Design Build Adventure; Tracey Overbeck Stead, interior designer; and Steve Ross, professor of architecture at University of Texas and founder of Design Build Alliance. The exhibition was an impressive collection of furniture and lighting designs that were functional, esthetically appealing and crafted to perfection. Each piece in this collection exemplified what good design is about today: it's first of all functional, then beautiful and finally it is environmentally kind. Watch out Didier Gomez!
Vickie Collins, proprietor of DWR Austin Studio, hosted this important and wonderful design event. Thanks Vickie for a great afternoon. And congratulations to all the designers in this exhibition. Tall Husband and I loved meeting you and test driving your beautiful designs.
