Designer Harry Allen in NYC

June 9, 2010

Live in New York? Like interesting design? Like wine and cheese?

Then swing by the Apartment Therapy Meetup tonight at Knoll and listen to a Q/A with designer Harry Allen!

Harry Allen is an award-winning interior and industrial designer. His work is highly imaginative and surprising. He often casts unexpected everyday items into functional pieces of modern art. Here are a few of the items we sell at UncommonGoods.

Nut Bowl by Harry Allen

Walnut and Peanut Bowls cast in white resin.

Hand hook by Harry Allen

Slightly creepy, but I can’t deny that it is interesting! Harry cast this wall hook from his own hand.

Apartment Therapy is one of my favorite blogs. And Maxwell, who runs the Meetup does an awesome job of asking artists/designers/creative types interesting and probing questions. It’s really informative, fun and free! Plus, there’s wine and cheese and a drawing to win a piece by the designer!

Hope to see you there!
