Announcing the second edition of CLOSEUP

Announcing the second edition of CLOSEUP

The second edition of CLOSEUP will take place May 16-18, 2021. Elevating the virtual trade show format, CLOSEUP connects the A&D community with brands and North American studios, providing design professionals a chance to source products from noteworthy local design studios and international manufacturers in a lively and interactive format.

Inspired by a TV format, the three-day trade program and hybrid format is presented and broadcast from New York to connect the A&D community with brands and design studios launching new products.

The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF)  and WantedDesign Manhattan responded to the Pandemic crisis by launching CLOSEUP in October 2020, providing to the trade a strong and valuable experience to develop projects and businesses.

By combining the two shows’ audiences and network of manufacturers and media partners, we are presenting the second edition of an original and robust platform for the A&D community to source products and discover designers, and for brands to sell products and meet potential clients.
