    Different Merchandise at the Mart

    In addition to the usual whirlwind of contract introductions at NeoCon, a "gallery" vibe resonated through Chicago's Merchandise Mart. Commissioned by Wolf-Gordon, for example, Karlssonwilker and the Guild collaborated on the colorful angular sculpture suspended above the Mart's main escalator. The open-source Web site shared-practice.com, meanwhile, curated "Relationship by Design: Exploring the Creative Relationship Between the Designer and Manufacturer."
