Friday marks the opening of this year’s edition of NYCxDesign, the citywide celebration of design that includes ICFF, not to mention smaller showcases of cutting-edge design. In Brooklyn, there’s BKLN Designs, where the name of the game is local work.  Among the firms showing work will be the borough’s own Think Fabricate, which is bringing a selection of new pieces, including the wall*nut vanity.

The cabinetry from the multidisciplinary studio (their work encompasses product design, residential interiors, branding and even public art) complements an earlier introduction, the wall*nut Medicine Cabinet—an asymmetrical mirrored medicine cabinet set in a mirrored frame. Says co-founder Susan Doban, “We’ve found that people really enjoy the warmth and softness of our medicine cabinet compared to more traditional ones, so it only made sense to design a vanity that also feels like a finely-crafted piece of furniture.”

Featuring a sliding walnut-veneered panel and gold-lacquered ash drawer fronts, the piece offers a luxe approach to bathroom cabinetry. “We’ve added a range of counter top choices for the vanity, including smoked glass which has a golden-y hue that works really well with the gold lacquered drawer fronts and wall*nut,” says Doban. There’s also a white glass option; custom counter materials are also an option.

Be sure to check out the vanities on view, the XL and the S, in its debut and created for small spaces that need a dose of chic. And, take a look at Think Fabricates other work, including the smart Reed Console Table and the stunning Lantern Helix chandelier.
