Collective Design 2017

New York shows off one of its creative sides each May with a near month-long celebration and display of all things design, called NYCxDESIGN. It’s become impossible to take it all in, with non-stop programming and trade shows in NYC and Brooklyn, at multiple locations, culminating with ICFF at the Javits Center and Wanted in Chelsea. Early in the month, before overload set in, it’s was a treat to visit the  Collective Design Fair. This fifth edition of the fair, which was founded by architect and interior designer Steven Learner, focused on 20th– and 21st-century design with the exemplary imagination and work from 28 exhibitors. Here’s a glimpse.
