NYC designers Frederick McSwain and François Chambard (of UM Project ) created an outdoors-inspired exhibition at Gallery R’Pure for New York Design Week called Off The Grid . Inspired by camping, flashlights, lanterns, and easy outdoor furniture solutions like using crates as chairs, the designers created what look to be more luxurious and creative alternatives to the traditional camping gear. Perhaps this is gear we might use when camping on a rooftop in NYC or as our only furniture in an effort to try and escape the real world? Descriptions below are from the designers.

We think you’ll love learning more about these four creatives. Experience their work below, and check out the all-new MSN here . I discovered the work of Thomas Wold back in 2007 .

One of things that makes the S tockholm Furniture Fair one of my favorite design shows, is Greenhouse. Entirely dedicated to new designers, this area showcases products that have never been shown before and are not yet in production, making this a really exciting place to see new design thinking. This year, the space was designed by Note Design Studio . Susanna Wahlin, Interior Architect at Note told me: “We were thinking about what it’s supposed to be and why it’s called Greenhouse.
