When I ran into jewelry and furniture designer Kiel Mead this weekend at The Future Perfect, he told me about his latest project, The American Design Club. With the sole purpose of putting on regular exhibits, Kiel's taking his passion for design and his links to the Brooklyn design scene to further the cause of American design. It picks up a thread he and I discussed earlier this year (when shooting our video on him) and is an idea that we couldn't get behind more.
The inaugural show takes on the theme of "outside" and the Club's currently accepting submissions. To apply email info [at] americandesignclub [dot] com. The deadline is 27 August 2008.
