The 2013 DesignPhiladelphia Festival kicked off on the evening of October 9th with two unique opportunities for design enthusiasts to celebrate design and experience multi-sensory, interactive installations in line with the Festival’s theme – Experience Design!
The first portion of the evening, PopUp Place, was hosted by bahdeebahdu, a multi-disciplinary working studio for design and the development of custom furnishings and lighting. It featured tastes by 12th Street Catering, Little Baby’s Ice Cream, Whipped Bakeshop, illy Coffee, and Art in the Age; a light projection installation by Andrew Cameron Zahn; textile design and installation by Heather Ujiie with RJ Thornburg; in-progress lighting installation by Warren Muller with Rebecca Pulver; participatory olfactory experience by GhostFood; and the music of the West Powelton Steppers and Heath Allen Trio. What a night to remember! Here’s a few of our favorite moments:
