Pratt Presents Branded Design at Industry City
with Areaware and WantedDesign
featuring Harry Allen, Chen Chen, Lisa Smith, and Kai Williams
Moderated by Anita Cooney

Thursday, March 17
Designers Talk, 7 PM (pre-event reception at 6 PM)
IC Store by WantedDesign
220 36th Street, Brooklyn NY 11231
RSVP mandatory

Join us for a special talk about the ways in which designers articulate their unique points of view while collaborating with major brands who already have a defined aesthetic. How do makers, from the emerging to the very established, collaborate with unique brands? Participants will include Chen Chen and Kai Williams of the eponymously named design studio, celebrated designer and alumnus Harry Allen of Harry Allen Design, and Lisa Smith, creative director of Areaware. The conversation will be moderated by the Dean of Pratt’s School of Design, Anita Cooney.

The conversation, which will begin at 7 PM, will be part of a special evening in honor of Chen Chen and Kai Williams’ new “Mirror Mask,” produced by Areaware. Mirror Mask will be on sale at the event in the WantedDesign store, along with the work of many other designers.  Attendees who purchase a Mirror Mask will also receive a unique wooden prototype of the design, which can be signed by the designers.


This event will be located at the IC store by WantedDesign
