19 May NYCxDesign 2015

The month of May in New York City annually hosts the largest design event in North America. NYCxDesign for 2015 took another step forward in the couple of years since the city government began targeting marketing and promotion resources to make ‘design week’ in NYC a much bigger deal. The large number of events now make it difficult to try and see everything. It takes a little more strategic planning to identify and make sure the best events do go unseen.

I have been attending ICFF since the late 90’s and even then there were a couple of offsite events that shadowed the fair at Javits. Now though, the number and and variety of satellite exhibitions, showroom openings and popup events have given the once cornerstone trade fair event a lot of competition for attention.

Since a lot of the work I do is concepts for interior spaces, here’s a selection of photos of spaces and displays that stood out. Some low budget and others spent a considerable amount of money but the delivery of a story or visual narrative is strong in each.

Cadilac stand at Collective Design showcasing the 1953 Cadillac LeMans Concept.

Cody Hoyt’s relocated ceramic studio at Collective Design showing the design process from sketch to mockup to finished piece.

Under Pressure: Densified Wood exhibition at Wanted Design Brooklyn used honeycomb plastic sheets as display stands.

USM: Re-Think the Modular project with Parsons School of Design created a nature-infused reading room.

Dynamic Sanctuary by The Principals was an ‘infinity’ environment with lighting that reacted to your pulse.

Dunn Studio exhibited lighting at ICFF that looked to be inspired by vintage aircraft.

Vitra incorporated a large amount of flowers and houseplants into their stand which color complimented with their furniture.

B+N Industries showcased their modular shelving system at ICFF with artwork created by Chantal Martin that changed every day.
