In addition to exhibiting its latest designs at Wanted Design (May 16 through 20), Keep is co-hosting a live glassblowing event with designers Luca Nichetto and Marc Thorpe on May 13 at Urban Glass in Brooklyn.

Furniture will also debut a brand new collection. “The C Desk embodies my elegant design sensibility and yearning for uncompromising functionality,” Joseph Chun says. With its asymmetrical shape that gives way to delightful Easter eggs, we can’t help but agree.
