rock the vote
The National Design Awards are going to be held on October 18th at the Cooper-Hewitt.
It’s an expensive affair which most of us probably will not attend but that does not mean
we don’t have a voice. There’s a peoples choice award and, starting today, you can log onto
cooperhewitt.org and vote for one of the items already nominated or nominate your own.
I browsed through the items - which range from Apple’s iPhone to a pair of so-called “German Comfort shoes - and felt something was seriously lacking. Something edible.
So, I unofficially nominate Vosges new bacon bar - chocolate and bacon. Together. Unbelievably delicious. A Vosges boutique is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Davis & Warshow SoHo showroom on Spring @ Mercer (there’s also one on Madison in the 70s), so on my last DWNY visit I popped in and bought a few bars for the guys.They were a hit all-around.
Who says chocolate + bacon doesn’t equal award-winning design?
