                                We came back to <a href="http://www.icff.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">ICFF</a> for the third year in a row to bring our <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/the-milk-stand/" data-wpel-link="internal">Milk Stand pop-up shop</a> and it was definitely the place to be at the fair this year! With a new curated group of 12 designers and makers, our corner of the fair was filled with attendees shopping from new collections of jewelry, ceramics, chalk drawers, leather goods, stationery, and more.
A huge thank you to Amigo Modern who designed our booth, Moo for our fabulous postcards, Mixbook for our signage, and Kelly Beall who designed the booth graphics and helped create our first ever Design Milk merchandise, including this tote that completely speaks to us. ;) FYI, they’ll be available to purchase online soon.

Tom Dixon’s Plans for His New Showroom in New York’s Soho Design District

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/tom-dixons-plans-new-showroom-new-yorks-soho-design-district/tom-dixon-greene-street-3/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/tom-dixon-greene-street-3-810x563.jpg" alt="Tom Dixon’s Plans for His New Showroom in New York’s Soho Design District" /></a>
                                One of the most exciting pieces of news from this year’s <a href="https://www.nycxdesign.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">NYCxDESIGN</a> week made Greene Street extra trafficky as New York’s design lovers flocked to <a href="https://www.tomdixon.net/storelocator/showroom/tom-dixon-shop-new-york" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Tom Dixon’s new NYC flagship showroom</a> in the <a href="https://sohodesigndistrict.org/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Soho Design District</a>.
Spread out across 6,700 and two separate floors, the showroom operates as a storefront for Tom Dixon’s growing catalogue of lighting, furniture, home decor and accessories but Dixon has bigger plans for it. The space will also act as multi-disciplinary platforms for innovation in design. That means you can expect unique events like the Flash Factory pop-up (where visitors can take home their own limited edition Etch Light after learning how exactly Tom Dixon manufactures each one), speaking engagements on the topic of current + emerging trends in design, or, like last week, an intriguing black banquet serving black bread and black meringue to celebrate the unveiling of the Black Collection. Dixon is already

Symbol Audio Modern Record Player Places Sound on a Pedestal

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/symbol-audio-modern-record-player/symbolaudio-mrp-black-_-white/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/SymbolAudio-MRP-Black-_-White-810x810.jpg" alt="Symbol Audio Modern Record Player Places Sound on a Pedestal" /></a>
                                If one was to describe New York Hudson Valley based design studio, <a href="http://www.symbolaudio.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Symbol Audio&#8217;s</a> body of work, it would be philosophically a recognition of yesterday executed technologically and aesthetically with the solutions of today. <a href="https://design-milk.com/symbol-stereo-console-part-furniture-part-audio-component/" data-wpel-link="internal">Their designs</a> nod back to a time when audio systems married componetry with a decor-friendly aesthetic, equipped with features serving how we listen to music in the digital era. Ironically enough, this includes the popular resurgence of vinyl. Thus, their newly revealed Modern Record Player is an audiophile record player paired with wi-fi connectivity and storage solutions designed to hide away digital accessories.
A 2018 NYCxDESIGN Awards Finalist, the Modern Record Player is sure to remind design-versed minds of Dieter Rams’ iconic Braun SK55, especially in its all-white iteration. Sharing a vented speaker front design with controls filtered of excess ornamentation, Symbol Audio’s modern day version houses a custom-built class AB amplifier powering custom-engineered speakers
