Slow Design: 100-Mile Brooklyn Kitchen

Julie Carlson January 30, 2009

From Julie and Francesca:

Outfit your kitchen with items sourced from local manufacturers or designers, which abound in Brooklyn.


Above: Brooklyn–based Metropolitan Produce’s Pot and Pan Rack, fashioned from a reclaimed beam inscribed with grooves for kitchen storage and bolted to the wall, is not for the faint of wallet: it’s $3,500. However, it could serve as an inspiration for a DIY project.

Above: Joel Bukiewicz handcrafts professional-grade kitchen cutlery in his Gowanus, Brooklyn, workshop; view his wares at Cut Brooklyn or stop in at his shop in Gowanus. The Brooklyn Kitchen also carries a selection of his sleek knives.

Above: The Brooklyn Kitchen carries traditional, high-quality 2.5mm-thick copper pots made in Brooklyn by Hammersmith Copper; the copper sauce pan shown above sells for $154.95.

Above: Stock your kitchen with reusable Brooklyn Based Market Totes for guilt-free grocery toting; $15 each at Brooklyn Based.

Above: Nature Dishtowels ($34) and Nature Runner ($44)  from Brooklyn design shop Simrin; available online at Velocity Art & Design.

Above: Among Williamsburg-based Moon River Chattel’s many offerings are this vintage-looking Roost Clear Glass Cyclinder Lamp, for $165, as well as architectural salvage including lighting, plumbing fixtures and door hardware.
