WantedDesign is a platform dedicated to promoting design and fostering the local and international creative community throughout the year. Its two marquee events are held in New York during NYCxDESIGN.

Outside the Box 2018

Outside the Box 2018

In collaboration with the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (January 15-21, 2018), WantedDesign will present the 7th edition of Outside the Box, an exhibition that creates a map of North American design. Each year, we identify a theme and a correspondent from 12 cities across the US and Canada who will curate a box of small design objects by designers and makers working in that location. The hope is that through seeing these pieces exhibited together, along with online companion information, one will gain some insight into the design scenes in these diverse cities. Once the exhibition leaves Toronto, it will move to WantedDesign Brooklyn at Industry City (May 17-21) during NYCxDESIGN, the city’s celebration of global design. The theme for 2018 is MATTER.

Discover more about each location and its local designers through the eyes of the twelve correspondents.
