In the News: Design Co-Op Opens on Canal Street

Allied Maker sconce••• Jean Lin, “the co-founder of the charitable design organization Reclaim NYC [and] the marketing consultant Michael Maloney created Colony, a multipurpose design exhibition space on New York’s Canal Street, which opened to the public last week.” It’s at 324 Canal, between Church and Broadway, on the second floor. “New York has a plethora of furniture showrooms, but the design gallery model, popular in Paris and Milan, has been slow to take off stateside. Colony currently represents 13 designers working in lighting, furniture and textiles in a business arrangement that pulls from both showroom and gallery models and is fueled by a broader mission of resource-sharing.” Pictured: Allied Maker‘s Composer sconce. —T Magazine
