Events at 200 Lex BLOCKBUSTER DESIGN WITH DERING HALL

RISD TEXTILES NEW TALENT EXHIBITION

On April 29, the New York Design Center celebrated Wired & Inspired, the first ever Virtual Showhouse presented by Dering Hall, with a kick-off party—“Blockbuster Design: From the Big Screen to the Design Scene with the Wired & Inspired Virtual Showhouse Designers.” The off-script conversation featured a fun round of fishbowl-drawn questions on topics ranging from design and cinema to New York City.

The New York Design Center hosted the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Textile Department New Talent Exhibition in the 1stdibs® at NYDC® Gallery on June 3. Twelve students transformed the space with their incredible work. Largely hand-produced, their stunning pieces were displayed on walls and draped on life-size mannequins. Two students were recognized with the Sherri Donghia Award of Achievement. Congratulations Emily Winter and Jungil Hong!

The Wired & Inspired Virtual Showhouse launched online and featured designers Brett Beldock, Etienne Coffinier and Ed Ku, Kati Curtis, Celerie Kemble, Lydia Marks and Lisa Frantz, Jayne and Joan Michaels, David Scott, Stefan Steil, and Virginia Toledo and Jessica Geller. Each designer was assigned a digital room to decorate using furnishings selected from 200 Lex showrooms. The designs consisted of a mood board and room renderings inspired by New York film sets.
