Think Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Think Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll. Mix mad-scientist speculation with Victorian sensibility and throw in a bit of Sci-Fi. What do you have?  Steampunk – one of the most fascinating design and lifestyle trends today.  The Pier Show featured the first New York City Steampunk exhibit when a dozen of its practitioners presented the Steampunk House – – a fantastic, futuristic exhibit devoted to creations and design ideas for the home. For two busy days thousands of interested viewers came to experience this large and hugely popular Steampunk event. Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum of ModVic hosted the the show and  EarlyElectrics was there to light up the exhibit with some of their newest lamp designs. Heres a review of the show from VandM’s, DESIGNinTELL article.
