SoNo Spaces provides premium event space for up to 75 people and includes a lounge and kitchen area. We regularly produce creative events in partnership with PUSH Workshops, and rent the space for full or half days. It’s the perfect spot to host a party, run a workshop, give a talk, cast your next movie or teach an in-person yoga class.

House Industries joined us for an entertaining walk through through their new book, “The Process is the Inspiration” (2017, Watson-Guptill/Penguin Random House) at SoNo Spaces in South Norwalk, Connecticut. In “The Process is the Inspiration”, House Industries answers the burning question, “Where do you find inspiration?” through an illustrative collection of helpful lessons, stories, and case studies that demonstrate how to transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work.
House Industries is a type foundry and design studio based in Yorklyn, Delaware. Admired for their iconic font collections and craft merchandise, House Industries has been at the forefront of American design for 25 years. House has worked with a diverse list of collaborators including Jimmy Kimmel, Hermès, The New Yorker, John Mayer, Muji, the Estate of Charles and Ray Eames, and Heath Ceramics. Their work is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and will be the subject of a major exhibition at The Henry Ford museum in the summer of 2017.
The “The Process is the Inspiration” book was available for sale at the event and House cofounder Rich Roat signed dozens of copies for enthusiastic attendees who purchased the book.
A portion of the proceeds was donated to benefit the Connecticut Art Directors Club Annual Student Conference. The conference supports the next generation of design professionals through lectures, mentoring and scholarships.
