For the first day of WantedDesign Brooklyn, a rich program of talks, tours, and workshops warmed up the atmosphere at Industry City for the opening night of NYCXDESIGN. Like the Brooklyn Open Studios and Factories which hosted theVitra Design Hunt; the presentations by ABC Home’s Senior Creative team, or the engaging activities on 3d printing by Shapeways, glass molding by Urban Glass, and on creating objects using mushrooms by Ecovative.
Thanks to the support of all the co-hosts the event was a great success! More than 4,000 people played with the colorful forms on the interactive wall by Dusen Dusen custom made by Visual Magnetics, the Tangible Tweets by Formnation and commissioned by Dutch Culture USA, a live performance by graffiti artists using NBQ pro spray paint, a projection installation by audio and visual designers Circus Family, all framed by the music of djs Rombo, Blasé and Richie Quake.
