Tweetup @ Droog Las Vegas – CES 2011 and ASW 2011

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas held its first-ever Cocktail Hour Tweetup of 2011 at Droog. Guests were be treated to a VIP art experience of unique art and design, drinks and a specialty cocktail, and even had a chance to win a Tesla Roadster sport car… for a day.

Droog is a pretty interesting furniture store. The 2,500 square foot interior was designed by Marcel Schmalgemeijer and is home to the iconic Droog collection along with other brands selected by Droog. The Droog collection is something only a rich person with very strange taste for furniture would buy. Included in the collection is a $38,000 carbon fibre bookcase and a $71,000 red and blue chair made of Lego.

I had a fun time checking out the collection and scaring the hell out of the Droog host by trying to sit in the Lego chair and putting a drink on a $40,000 table. The look on her face was priceless. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture it on video. However, what I did capture should give you a good idea on what a Droog Vegas Tweetup is like.

    John. Was great partying with you tonight. The exhibition looks amazing. Might have to check it out on my extended stay.

    Bring on tomorrow with the tip off, cheerleaders and shoot out.

    1. Hey John,

      Nice video and interesting reporting on the going ons at the event.

      Did you actually genuinely like any of the furniture aside from the prices?

      The lego chair is interesting but I wonder if I’d want to actually use it.

      1. John Chow says:

        No, I don’t know any of the furniture, regardless of how much it cost.

  2. really interesting stuff but i think its a little out of my price range for now!

    1. dotCOMreport says:

      Maybe John Chow’s price range…

      Great pictures John; keep em coming.

      1. Would be out of my price range too, but looks like fun!

  3. oh, it’s very Expensive chair, but i think i like it .

    🙂

      I wish I could have seen the face of the person working there when John almost sat in it!

    what the hell is the table made up to cost so much.

    1. John Chow says:

      As far as I can tell, just normal wood.

  5. Harshad says:

    Wonder if anyone would but that 71K chair and actually use it as a chair.

    1. For just $5000 I will make you an exact replica 🙂

  6. Vegas is one of the best places to be!!!

  7. Pay the expense but for what ? Only to look that all specially the second one captured in the video. That was the real fun to be on the little rollers being siting.

  8. PPC Ian says:

    Cosmopolitan has been getting tons of press. I’ve got to stay there next time I’m in Vegas but its got to be difficult to top the Wynn.

  9. What 71k ? For a chair ?

    Are you kidding me ?

    1. Give me a break, the $71,000 Lego chair contains about $150 worth of Legos.

  10. ikki says:

    look like a fun

  11. That’s the trouble with artsy fartsy stuff, artists lose their minds and charge ridiculous prices once they get a name. I remember seeing an all white canvas in a museum in Atlanta once and that was the painting, nothing but white and it was valued at like $100k…ridiculous.

  12. Sounds really good. I guess I will check it out since it’s free.
