Designer Pages , the new source for searching products in Architecture and Design, commissioned TMRnyc to design and build three SideWired tables for their booth at the NEOCON 2009 expo in Chicago. One being 10′ long. More pictures to follow. Their booth included a giant 12′ media wall that was running a Twitter app featuring all of the Tweets during the show. Farrokh at Farrodyne provided the water jet cutting and installation for us in Chicago. Actually, Farrodyne saved our collective butts after one unmentionable glass company in Chicago dropped the ball at the last minute. They couldn’t understand why I was upset for some reason and then went into this whole “You’re from New York and you have a bad NY attitude”  Is there some weird New York/Chicago beef I am missing? Fill me in.

It is really tough to find good fabricators and welders. Generally speaking, even someone with a good sense of what to do with their hands. Check out this NY TImes article. They were chatting about it on NPR this morning.
