Thumbnail for Regional Design Awards: 2018 Winner Galleries

At last month’s New York Gift Fair, among the increasingly excellent offerings by Ohio-based distributor Wilma Wabnitz, we found Studio Ooga (it means "cake" in Hebrew"), an Israeli design incubator that seeks out emerging local talent, offers them production and manufacturing know-how, then folds designs into its collection of quirky household items. Among the offerings: kids furniture, lighting, vases, and ceramic kitchenware including the cheekily named Salt Squad, by Holon Institute of Technology grad Meytal Perelman. With its 12 Dzama-esque shakers, dinner guests can each have their own dispenser within arms’ reach, making awkward reaches a thing of the past. or
