Welcome to the inaugural issue of our Dwell on Design newsletter. As a past attendee we wanted to give you a preview and invite you to sign up to continue receiving this newsletter.
We’re excited to share with you all the upcoming announcements and breaking news regarding this year’s event. You will be the first to know as we confirm exhibitors and speakers, special events, the line-up for the 2012 Home Tours, and more. Of course you may still receive important notices and updates from time to time by email but this newsletter will be our primary mode of communication to you for Dwell on Design June 22-24, 2012 at the LA Convention Center. So sign up today!
For this first issue we'll take a look back at some of the highlights from 2011.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FOX IS BLACK
Guest blogger Bobby Solomon, aka The Fox Is Black, put together a slideshow of show floor highlights, including wares from Molo, David Trubridge, Zoe Garred, and Daniel Ogassian.
Essentially the West Coast equivalent of ICFF in New York, but with less hype and austerity, Dwell On Design is an exciting time for Los Angeles. It unites designers, creatives, larger corporations, as well as the average person on their quest to beautify their home.
FROM THE SHOW FLOOR: SASAKI
Bass beats suddenly stream from Dwell on Design’s speakers. It’s not an African drum, but a public broadcast of someone’s heartbeat. In time with the beat, Sasaki, the silver space-suited artist with a sharp haircut approaches a wall, airbrush in hand, and proceeds to paint the wall in rhythmic concurrence.
