Breadbox Studio in Harlem to host design event May 11

After I posted about the Harlem Focus event by Cooper-Hewitt, another design event happening in Harlem was sent in to share. On May 11, Harlem’s Breadbox Studio will be providing “a demonstration of Maker Bots and 3D Printing machines, and a talk by young TOY designers.” The event is free to the public and it starts at 6 pm.  BreadBox Studio is located at 1844 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd.

Introducing a new toy design studio in Harlem, first design fair December 8

Did you know Harlem has a new toy design studio? Yup, it’s located in the old Katrina Flower Shop space on 112th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd. Joe Masibay, an ex Fisher Price toy designer has partnered up with Cynthia Woodie of muppet sculpting fame and Gus Konstantakopoulos to open up the studio at 1844 ACP Jr. Blvd.

The focus of the studio is obvious! They will work on toy design. But Masibay says there will be local Harlem artists who will co-work there as well. They are also looking to collaborate with local design professionals and grow the design community in Harlem.

If you’re interested in checking out this new toy design studio, there’s an opportunity to do so tomorrow, December 8. They are having an art/design/craft fair featuring local artist and toy designers from 10 am to 6 pm. One of the designers that will be on hand is Sean Vegazzi, who has worked with Annie Leibovitz and recently published a book titled I Don’t Warna Grow Up.
