On Friday we told you about the wondrous rainbow of repurposed party supplies (plates, napkins, cutlery) that event planner David Stark and his team whipped up for the Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Awards Gala and afterparty. We’ve tracked down some additional photos from the night of a thousand design stars to give you a closer look at the decor in action under the tent. Spectrally stacked chair cushions—who knew? Now click “continued…” and get out your magnifying glass for a rousing game of “Spot John Maeda‘s Head”! (Hint: the RISD president/cult figure is sitting next to Scott Stowell, winner of the NDA for Communications Design.)
