The Metrocard Belt Buckle is here.

The Metrocard buckle provides easy access to your subway fare card. Don’t miss those trains that always seem to show up when you’re running late. Gone are the days of fumbling to get your fare card out of your wallet while holding your bags, spilling the morning cup of coffee and staring in disbelief as the train takes off without you.

  • Ready access to your Metrocard or any public transit card.
  • Made of hot-rolled steel that develops a unique patina from daily wear.
  • Die-Cut red felt keeps the card from slipping out when you are doing cartwheels.
  • Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.
  • For use with any two button snap belt.
  • Limited edition of 1,000 – Hand stamped and numbered by the designer. ¬†Patrick J Quinn

Designer Pages – NEOCON 2009 Table Commissions

June 25th, 2009


Custom Projects, Design, Events


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.
