nygif: javits center
twice a year, an astounding array of the world's best home, gift and lifestyle resources converge at the nygif in the javits center. this year, nooka, is showcasing their noo spring/ summer line featuring exciting new color ways of the ao and strip as well as an introduction to the new zub zirc line. the nygif runs until february 4th, so if you're in town, be sure to stop by booth #4067. note, this is not a consumer show, no individual sales are permitted, just wholesale orders. it is a great opportunity for product design students to meet industry people and do market research though.
also, don't forget, starting february 16th, nooka will be showcasing their new products at the project, in las vegas!
In response to the tragic events in Haiti, Nooka Inc. will donate 10% of all online purchases* between January 21st and February 21st to Architecture for Humanity. Although food aid is important, it is a temporary solution. A better Haiti must be structurally prepared to weather another earthquake or hurricane.

Recently, Architecture for Humanity launched a fund-raising appeal to support long term reconstruction efforts in Haiti. learn more about them or make a direct donation here.
