Brooklyn-based designer Paul Isabella is very talented. He is one of those rare creative talents that possesses the unique ability to move seamlessly from something like graphic design into furniture design and fabrication without losing any of his craft. His work in both veins is equally inspiring and I would gladly hang a patterned print from him in my studio while sitting comfortably in one of his beautiful chairs.
I just returned from a trip to Brooklyn and walked through some of the areas where a lot of young designers and artists are taking up residence. It’s an exciting place to be and there is definitely a universal creative hive mind happening there that is causing some amazing work to come out of that area.
