“Locally Grown, Internationally Known” read the headlines for this years 6th annual BKLYNDESIGNS in DUMBO, hosted by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce this past weekend, Friday May 9, Saturday May 10th and Sunday May 11th. If you missed it this year, be sure to check it out next year!

Close to 70 Exhibitors displayed their work in 4 locations around DUMBO (all in very close proximity) at St. Anns Warehouse, DUMBO Arts Center (DAC), Smack Mellon, and BD+ Tobacco Warehouse. Below are just some of the images taken from each of the 4 display locations:

St. Anns Warehouse:

Sculptural led bug lighting designs by Site Specific Design


Some of the Images of exhibitors at the DUMBO Arts Center:

Loved the toy “you put it together” version of the real thing, Mini Bamba by EcoSystems

This mini model kit measures about 4″ assembled, and mimics the larger Bamba (seen behind) version that you can really sit in. The chair is made of bamboo with no hardware required.

From the Source, handcrafted furnishings


and at Smack Mellon

Industrial Art from reclaimed wood featured by, Eric Johnston

Lighting fixtures displayed within the record album dividers by Nicholas Furrow, featured conventional items such as a honey jar and strainer used in an unconventional way.

And if you’re looking for a skateboard made of scraps, you may find what you’re looking for at Funkinfunction Longboards


and last but not least, the Tobacco Warehouse:

At the entry

The Tobacco Warehouse building primarily featured jewelry and textiles
