For Trove’s newest collection of wallpapers, which debuted last month at ICFF, the company’s founders, Jee Levin and Randall Buck, mined an awe-inspiring breadth of sources to create designs that complement the firm’s existing range.

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.
As part of our on-going series of interviews with young architects and designers, we're bringing you a conversation with Richard Ong. Ong received his undergraduate degree in biology at Bowdoin college and is now at MIT, completing his M.Arch. This spring, a design of his—a bench—was included, along with other student work, in the Furniture Society's booth at ICFF. Not too shabby considering it's only the second piece of furniture he has designed. We're pleased to share his thoughts on biology, architecture and design.
