KLYN DESIGNS 2016 included the most extensive and varied lineup of programming since its launch in 2003. In addition to a talented pool of furnishings and accessories designers presenting new products, the 2016 edition, which ran from May 6-8 at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint in conjunction with NYCxDESIGN, offered more than 30 sessions that explored topics of design, architecture, sustainability, technology and craft for an audience of design trade and design-loving consumers. This year, attendees were able to participate in facilitated open dialogues, make-andtake workshops, design technology demos, walking tours, classes, tastings and seminars, taking place in various locations of the Brooklyn Expo Center. Panel discussions were presented on the Resource Furniture Stage while handson activities took place across the show floor and in the newly-created Maker’s Lab. Special show floor features included: a Micro Loft created by AphroChic, AJ Madison and Resource Furniture; an active pop-up studio from the Textile Arts Center; an open discussion series at the THINK + [TABLE] by Think Fabricate; a playable cornhole gallery by American Design Club; the Coney Island Lounge by UHURU; student exhibits from Pratt; and more.
