On Monday, June 11, 2012, the hungry streets of Chicago, Illinois will be filled with more than 25,000 speed walkers heading for Wacker Drive home of the monolith called the Merchandise Mart. Yes, the name says it all. It is a block wide and probably a block deep.
At one time and probably still, owned by the Democratic patriarchal family from the state of Massachusetts, well known for their politics who had the great fortune to give this proud nation a President also. Yes, it is the time of the year for the annual design fair fest called NEOCON. The nation will show off some of their best and latest inventions for furniture to be used in the business world in the many showrooms where designers and architects will gather musing over what fits best where. We might be able to report to you by blogging from Chicago. In the mean time here are some fine photo shots of those who actually know what making designer product is all about in a truly artisan way!
