Starting May 15th, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, home to our fabrication shop, will show a hands-on multimedia exhibit titled “Making it in NYC: The Era of New Manufacturing” at BLDG 92.

We designed a flexible display system for the exhibition, consisting of pegboard-inspired hexagonal aluminum composite modules with three-dimensional, folded surfaces, that is adaptable to myriad products of varying scales.

Visitors are invited to actively engage with and even operate the exhibition objects, which represent a wide variety of manufacturing businesses from five industry groups: Energy & Resiliency, Furnishing & Home Goods, Tech & Media, Building & Construction, Fashion & Apparel.
