To add a little random fun to all of the Design Week festivities happening this week and next in NYC, the lovely Jean of Notcot orchestrated a citywide Twitter sticker scavenger hunt that we are calling #OBJECTHUNT. We got together with a few of our favorite design blogs - Notcot, Apartment Therapy, Design Milk, Moco Loco, The World’s Best Ever, Cool Hunting, and Design Glut - and The Standard hotel to spread out a bunch of stickers of iconic design objects/things that we covet around the city (mainly in areas where Design Week events are happening). If you spot a sticker, take a photo of it and tweet it with the hashtag #OBJECTHUNT, and you will be entered to win the Ultimate Design Getaway package courtesy of The Standard hotel, NOTCOT and Dwell which includes:
- Two Nights Stay at The Standard, Downtown LA in a "huge" guest room with daily breakfast for two.
- Two Home Tour tickets to Dwell on Design in LA, June 25-27; includes a weekend pass and a choice of a Eastside or Westside tour. Courtesy of Dwell on Design, a preeminent modern design show for the design trade on the West Coast.
- And a PUPPY! (Not a real puppy, silly!) An adorable classic Eero Aarnio designed toy puppy from the Magis 'Me too' children's collection, courtesy of NOTCOT.
Check out www.objecthunt.com for full details and the official rules. Keep your eyes peeled as you wander around the Design Week events and tweet your photos of the stickers to #OBJECTHUNT to be entered to win!

We'll all be dropping a few hints over the next few days on twitter and here as to where stickers might be...Hint #1: What NYC hotel has both an awesome beer garden and straddles the Highline? That might just be a good place to start...
