American Design Club's Use Me Exhibit

The American Design Club, founded in 2008, aims to shine a brighter spotlight on U.S. furniture/product designers. All the functional, minimal pieces in this year's exhibition, called Use Me, are available for purchase. The show's on until May 17 at the American Design Building, 45 Great Jones Street, in East Village/Noho, New York. Make sure to check out what else is on display on the way to the top floor.

From top: Iacoli & McAllister's light fixtures and chairs; chairs by RISD student designers Rosie Li and Vivian Chiu, screen by fellow student Misha Kahn; candlesticks by Alexandra  Snook; and Grain's Hemp Mirror.

End tables form the Brooklyn–based Uhuru's War Craft Line, on the third floor of the American Design Building. The components are either reclaimed from the USS North Carolina—built at the Brooklyn Navy Yard—or reference the design of the celebrated World War II battleship.
