Innovative design is meant to be looked at, but meeting the people behind the objects adds extra depth to the experience. That’s the case at BKLYN DESIGNS, where more than 70 exhibitors are showing their furniture, tableware, lighting, textiles and jewelry this weekend at the Brooklyn Expo Center, 72 Noble St., Greenpoint. The raw materials vary widely (steel, concrete, wood, glass, ceramic) as does the character, from industrial to delicately natural. The Bridge visited the show on its first day; here’s a sampling of our favorites.
