CA Boom

The CA Boom design show was in Santa Monica this weekend. Crazy registration process, stuffy atmosphere packed with booths, lousy acoustics, but some really interesting materials and innovation. Glimpse into the show sections and exhibitors here. Noted:

Great section on Prefab, including works by Minarc:
Airplane wings as desks by Motoart:
Superb handcrafted furniture by Brooks Lawrence and Florian Roeper:
James Vilona's sculpture chairs:
CA Boom also organized architecture tours. Curbed LA reports.
