"Against The Grain": Spectacular wood-art and sculptural furniture exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design.

Nearly three weeks ago I toured the latest exhibition at NYC's "MAD" museum called Against The Grain.  It's a truly remarkable display of wood and furniture art and I encourage everyone to attend, if you are able.  I fully intend to aggregate my photos and pull together a proper blog post about my experience there.  In the meantime, my good friend, design historian Daniella Ohad, has created a sensational video blog about the exhibit.  Enjoy!
