Introducing NYDesigns resident: bhold

Meet one of NYDesigns’ newer resident, bhold.


bhold designs smart, functional accessories that make your life easier. Their design and production processes rely on 3D printing technologies, which encourage faster and more responsive iterations. We (and women everywhere, as well as men who “tote”) love their bstrong utility hook, a nifty little thing that lets you have your own hook wherever you go, keeping your bag, coat, umbrella, or motorcycle helmet off the ground. This lightweight design will fit over almost any table or countertop, and its internal ribbing lets it hold 20 lbs with ease.


On May 10-11 and again on May 17-18bhold will be participating in WantedDesign through NYCxDESIGN week, New York City’s official citywide celebration of design with international designers exhibiting installations, pop-up stores, workshops, and more.

Beyond showcasing their designs and 3D printing process, they’ll be hosting the 3D studio space at The Factory Floor at Industry City, a workshop-oriented portion of WantedDesign. bhold has also been selected to be a part of American Design Club’s FIELD DAY show at the same venue.

The bhold team will be leading workshops in 3D modeling and techniques. If you’ve always wanted to get into designing your own 3D printed pieces, sign up for one of the workshops they’ll be teaching!


The NYDesigns team will be at Industry City as well from May 10-20 (noon-6pm everyday excepting Mondays and Wednesdays), sharing a booth with resident Surname.


Stop by to say hi to all of us!

Introducing NYDesigns resident: HUXHUX

HUXHUX is a young design studio dedicated to exceptional interior design, architecture and furniture.


Justin Huxol, founder, teaches Interior Design studios at Parsons The New School for Design. Justin received his M.Arch from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. With extensive experience working with luxury retail brands and hospitality clients, HUXHUX designs fine furniture that is not necessarily interested simply in functionality. HUXHUX is interested in using their furniture as an unexpected means of engaging people with the spaces they inhabit. Light, form, materiality are always at play. HUXHUX has been a resident at NYDesigns since March 2014.


For WantedDesign 2014, HUXHUX is launching two new lines of furniture: The Shapeshifters and The Prisms. Both lines come from the same formal family of translational geometries and stacked construction. The Shapeshifters are clean, smooth, pure volumes that shift shapes from their tops to their bases. These birch pieces come in sets that reveal the full combinative possibilities of the three shapes. They can be configured as a group or stacked as totems. The Prisms speak the same formal language but break from the simplified perfection of the Shapeshifters. The acrylic Prisms conflate geometry and begin to engage a more crystalline glowing agenda. These pieces refract light and color from their internal voids, giving them a psychic presence in the spaces we inhabit.


Find out more about WantedDesign here and don’t forget to RSVP if you want to attend the opening night party on Friday, May 16th and say hey to Justin!
