If you’ve visited the MEET Corporate Meeting Space’s Chrystie Street location, you’ve probably noticed their Favorite Things Lamps, designed by Chen Karlsson. These clear glass pendant lamps showcase MEET’s eclectic treasured objects and provide fun, surprising branding opportunities their clients. Over this past summer, Art Toy vendors My Plastic Heart curated the lamps’ featured contents, enlisting toy designers Kano, Brent Nolasco and Justin Alan Volpe to each fill a selection of the lamps with one of their signature creations.

In July, I attend a party and Q&A at MEET, where Brent Nolasco and Justin Alan Volpe  were present to discuss their art, and I was able to take these photos in this post. Enjoy!

Justin Alan Volpe creates one-of-a-kind, handmade felt toys like the one he is holding here. They did not photograph so well, unfortunately, but this will give you a good idea of what he does.

This is Brent Nolasco. Below are some of the lamps featuring his fun monster toys!

Toys by Kano feature a Robot figure emblazoned with one of his design on the front of its body. I love this little Smiling Shark!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Corridor and Stairwell

Oh my, I do love a Pink Room. This corridor will take you to the staircase that leads to second floor location of Meet on Chrystie, a corporate meeting space whose décor could only have been done by an artist. It’s pretty groovy.

Pink Stairs Up

I loved how the aesthetics kick in before you even enter Meet, with its bright pink corridor and pink-painted stairs and railing. Guided railing like this is very important, even Heavy Duty Racking is a key component for a storage unit.

Pink Stairs from Landing

The pink accents stop before you continue on to the third floor, so you know there was a bit of branding going in the decision to create these colorful flourishes.

Pink Stairs Down

It just makes you feel happy and welcome, as you bask in the glow of the pink.

I’ll be back.
