Brooklyn is booming, and it is now home to some of the world’s most radical design talent. Brooklyn: New Style provides an insider’s look at these cutting-edge designers-in graphics, fashion, furniture, architecture, and other fields-who came to the area in search of space, artistic freedom, places to exhibit their work, and fellow artists with whom to collaborate. Priced out of Manhattan by high rents and exorbitant living costs, these young innovators settled in unexpected, out-of-the way neighborhoods like Williamsburg, Dumbo, Fort Greene, and Bushwick, moving Brooklyn to creative center stage in the process. This is the second in a series published by Booth-Clibborn Editions on cities or boroughs where young designers live and work, the first being Berliner Style, edited by Caroline Kurz.
Filled with more than 350 full-color illustrations of off-the-wall projects by Fischer Spooner, Graphic Havoc, Made in USA, Milkcrate, Project Dragon, and 30 other designers, the book captures the energy and talent of these Brooklyn scene-makers. Interviews with the designers and informative captions add another dimension, exploring the social and economic context for this creative explosion.
