WantedDesign and Industry City

WantedDesign and Industry City

For NYCxDESIGN, WantedDesign brought a successful 10 day program at Industry City in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, including an amazing opening night on May 10. With an attendance of more than 4,000 people, Industry City was stage for a wide range of multi-disciplinary design events, open to the design community and to the public. Bringing the design community together, Industry City/Design featured a mix of local and international work from traditional makers, innovative companies, design collectives and emerging studios.

From graphic design to furniture making, lighting installation to artisan demonstrations, visitors had the opportunity to explore and interact with the vast world of design through group exhibitions, installations, workshops, demonstrations, forums and open studio tours. In the courtyard was a creation commissioned to acclaimed designer and artist Sebastian Errazuriz, who moved his design studio to Industry City in 2013. More

In celebration of his one-year anniversary at the complex, Errazuriz created a special installation for the WantedDesign programming: a giant golden calf piñata filled with thousands of dollars that was opened during the last day of Industry City/Design. To close the May 20 day design celebration, WantedDesign organized with The Center for an Urban Future the Design Forum, bringing key New York design representatives to discuss on the role and business of design in New York City and how to grow NYCxDESIGN.

We want to thank all the participants and attendees that made Industry City/Design a design hub in Brooklyn and certainly one of the most exciting destination during NYCxDESIGN.
