Curbed Young Guns 2015 Winners at NYCxDesign: Where Are They Now?

A look at what two 2015 Young Guns are up to in 2016

Last fall, we introduced our 2015 Young Guns, a group of multihyphenate whizzes in the worlds of interior design, applied arts, real estate development, landscape and floral design, urban planning, graphic design, and more.

With our 2016 Young Guns just days away from making its debut, and New York Design Week well under way in the Big Apple, we thought we'd check in with two members of last year's class and see what they're up to at NYCxDesign. Take a look.

John Hogan

The Seattle-based experimental glass artist is showcasing his dazzling objetsas well as blown-glass lighting created in collaboration with the bicoastal design duo behind Ladies and Gentlemen Studio, Jean Lee and Dylan Davis—at New York furniture gallery The Future Perfect.

Much like his solo work in glass, Hogan's collab with Lee and Davis features colorful glass given a chemical treatment to achieve a milky, translucent finish. At a press preview of the collection at the Future Perfect last week, Hogan, Lee, and Davis explained that teaming up seemed natural. Both Ladies & Gentlemen Studio and Hogan, after all, explore scale, material, texture, and spatial arrangement in avant-garde ways.

ASH, which mixes design acumen with development know-how, created the VIP lounge and café, dubbed, aptly, "Office Space," at this year's Collective Design Fair, which ran from May 4–8. Clocking in at 1,250 square feet, the space provided a bit of respite for the weary feet of fairgoers, and included a table made of reclaimed pine and sleek, black-painted chairs, and cubicles. ASH also whipped up a limited-edition chair for the space, which was for sale on site.
