NYC x Design 2017 RoundUp
NYC x Design occurs every May, and has evolved over the years to be more than one weekend of the ICFF fair and Soho design store parties. It is now a month long event which includes emerging and innovate design with multiple talks, parties, and openings.
Below is a round up of what I saw and what I liked at each of New York's major Design Shows this year.
Collective Design Brings together a global curation from the art world, both modern and vintage furniture, as well as smaller sculptural objects and soft goods.
Sight Unseen Offsite has been my favorite show the past few years. A beautifully curated mix of emerging designers it consistently feels young, fun and new.
BKLYN Designs is held, as the name indicates in Brooklyn. A weekend fair focused on emerging designers, jewelry, textiles, small goods with a very maker vibe and a host of lectures over the course of the weekend.
Wanted Design a great grouping of Design from around the world. I am always particularly fond of the rooms focused on specific country's which introduce me to new and innovated design from Mexico to Japan.
ICFF The OG of New York Design Fairs, this is held at Jacob Javits Center every May and I have to admit the year I got married I planned my wedding around ICFF so I wouldn't miss it. This fair can be an overwhelming but when you power through with the focus of looking for the new and the next you discover amazing work from all of the world ranging from legacy design firms to emerging designers.
