Name the hubs for emerging American designers and you'll likely hear the usual suspects of Seattle, San Francisco, and Brooklyn. Look southward, too, though, for a crop of energetic young guns set on making their mark. One such designer, Atlanta-based Chris Hardy, enticed the iconic Italian lighting manufacturer FontanaArte to produce his new Wig lamp. After returning from Milan, where Chris debuted Wig, the young designer chatted with me about FontanaArte, the state of contemporary American design, and Atlanta's burgeoning design scene. "It's nice to see that design is infused in the culture here—even if it is on a small scale," he says speaking of a few streets named after historic design figures.
