Crypton Celebrates 25th Anniversary With a Detroit-Themed Party
In celebration of its 25-year anniversary, Crypton, a leading performance fabric manufacturer, hosted a distinctly Detroit-centric party honoring everything from the city’s famed automotive history to renowned projects by Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen. Held on the rooftop of the historic Madison Building, “Design Without Limits” cast Crypton as another player in the Motor City’s emerging design renaissance, which has blossomed in the decade-long recovery from the Great Recession. The fête boasted over 100 attendees, including local designers Michael Poris and Jeremy Noonan, and even featured a serendipitous double-rainbow after a portentous downpour.
