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.

When clients start remodeling, bigger is often the name of the game, especially when it comes to bathrooms. Not so for Lian Eoyang, of the San Francisco–based firm VIF Studio and her clients’ master bath in their expansive home outside Boston. Instead, she took a sprawling space, actually a his-and-hers set-up, and made it more intimate and user-friendly, swapping in a soothing palette of black, white and gray, along with equally quiet materials. Highlights include a two-person shower, a new closet for the toilet and a tub ringed with loose stones for a dramatic textural statement. We were so intrigued by this jewel box of a space, we asked Eoyang for more details, and she was happy to oblige.
