Art + Design: Designing in L.A.
Our friends Robin and Cathy from Heath Ceramics will be there with Remodelista in Dwell’s Local Los Angeles Market. In addition you can also find fabulous textiles from San Francisco’s Studiopatró, treasured pieces found in barns and back alleys at Salvage Design Company, and aprons and kitchen textiles made in Japan by Ambatalia.
After a full day of walking the floors of Dwell on Design, you’ll need a little recharge, and what better way than to track down the great graphic design that you can find on most of L.A.’s favorite food trucks. Check out FindLaFoodTrucks.com, a site that gathers all of the rolling gourmet trucks’ Twitter feeds in one convenient place.
Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to also find L.A.’s Design Truck, a movable design show that follows the gourmet trucks. According to Dwell’s blog, “This weekend, Design Truck will tag behind L.A.’s hottest food trucks as they make their Twitter-announced stops outside stores and bars across the city. As the trucks start serving, Ravenhill and Adamick (the duo behind the Design Truck) will set an ad hoc seating area on the adjacent sidewalk and encourage diners to eat their sustainably raised, locally sourced Asian-fusion cuisine while seated on, say, an enameled aluminum and American white oak bench under the light of a blown-glass pendant lamp inspired by bundled newspapers. All of the pieces will be for sale, many at significantly discounted prices.”
Post a comment below to tell us about your favorite food truck and you may be one of three lucky winners to receive a pack of the following design books.
