A huge thank you to the more than 17,000 visitors who visited WantedDesign both in Manhattan and in Brooklyn during NYCxDESIGN. Along with our partners, we kicked off NYCxDESIGN at WantedDesign Brooklyn at Industry City on Saturday, May 7, with an event that welcomed thousands of people to launch the city’s 14-day celebration of design. WantedDesign Brooklyn was host to the Design Schools Workshop with 27 students from around the globe, installations that celebrated craft and collaboration, including Libs Elliott’s Unity Quilt created by the community; exhibitions of student work from Parsons and SVA; the Rado Star Prize presentation by Rado; and the launch of OuiDesign which included the Transatlantic Creative Exchange and we trust in wood by matali crasset and Vent des Forets, along with numerous other conversations, installations and exhibitions.
At WantedDesign Manhattan, the Conversation Series was as engaging as ever, the Launch Pad returned and was won by Canadian lighting and furniture designer Jordan Tomnuk. The second American Design Honors presented alongside Bernhardt Design was awarded to Steven Haulenbeek, who’s beautiful work was a favorite of the weekend. International design was presented from Argentina, Mexico, Norway, France, Tunisia, New Zealand, Colombia, Poland, the Netherlands and more. In both Manhattan and Brooklyn, WantedDesign connected international designers with interior designers, architects, retailers, manufacturers, media and design lovers from around the world.More…
