“We’re proud to be a part of New York City’s citywide celebration of design, and we encourage visitors to experience our vibrant design community and the newest developments, expressions, and trends that will be showcased throughout the five boroughs,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company at a design community kickoff event at the Museum of Arts and Design.
“The world recognizes us as innovative, vital, and visionary because of programs like NYC X DESIGN, and it further promotes New York City as a global design capital.”
The amazing success of last year’s NYC X DESIGN, which featured 564 unique events at 228 locations, doubles the number of events held in 2014. These events represented 17 design disciplines including digital, furniture, graphic, architecture, product and urban design.
NYCxDESIGN 2016 will include events focused on commerce, culture, education and entertainment with a full, varied program including exhibitions, installations, trade shows, talks, launches and open studios. NYCxDESIGN Awards
For this year, Interior Design magazine and ICFF will present the first annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, a global design competition celebrating outstanding achievement across major areas of design—from architecture to interiors, from products to collectibles, from craft to technology.
“No matter the fair or show, borough of the city or design discipline, it’s about the community coming together for the very first time in celebration of all things design, and it doesn’t get better than that!” said Cindy Allen, Interior Design’s editor in chief. The Design Pavilion/NYC Design Talks
From May 7-15, Design Pavilion will hold a spectacular 9-day public activation at Astor Place in Greenwich Village. This curated set of interactive displays will bring design and innovation directly to New Yorkers and visitors alike during this year’s NYC x DESIGN. In conjunction with Design Pavilion, NYC Design Talks will explore the relationship between design and community and will feature talks by some of today’s great design thinkers and relevant insights provided by IBM, Design Trust for Public Space, NYC Department of Design and Construction, AIGA, and more.
“Design Pavilion invites community engagement in celebrating NYCxDESIGN and ultimately encourages the increased awareness of the power of design,” said Ilene Shaw, founding principal of event producer Shaw & Co. Productions. Design Pavilion and NYC Design Talks are produced by Shaw & Co. Productions with creative direction by Harry Allen Design.
