He proved it by grafting a treadmill to a desk ? his test subjects got healthier and walked off dozens of pounds without breaking a sweat at a 1 mph pace.

But we're pleased to report the contemporary design expo has some new faces too -- furniture and accessories we spotted last month while covering New York Design Week . If you missed them the first time around, you can see the colorful stainless steel indoor-outdoor furnishings by the Salvadoran manufacturer MarkaModerna, inventive accessories by up-and-coming Norway design students, experimental furnishings in surprising materials by the Guatemala-based Fabrica, stunning blankets by Mandal Veveri and, at the end of the day, rest in a prototype of the comfortable reclining leather VAD AS chair.  This year's Dwell on Design Artist in Residence is Tanya Aguiñiga , who will be assembling and making furniture and accessories on site for people living in transitional housing.
