As we head towards NYCxDESIGN this year, there seems to be a real optimism. We have certainly noticed many more installations happening in the city, and a lot of international press and designers are planning to attend.

Key things of note this year include Sight Unseen's new OFFSITE fair, which will be held on two floors at 200 Lafayette in Soho and Wallpaper* Handmade making its New York debut with Jaguar. Located in the Meatpacking district, it will feature 40 specially commissioned designs, including Fiona BarrattCampbell, Todd Bracher, Paul Loebach, the Haas Brothers and Suzanne Tick.

Another destination of note is INTRO/NY which will be at 201 Mulberry Street, sponsored by designjunction. WantedDesign gets better and better and is now in its 4th year, located in the Terminal Stores on 11th Avenue. Don't miss out on Industry City in Brooklyn where WantedDesign has teamed up for an 11 day series of events and workshops.

ICFF will open on Saturday as usual at the Javits Convention Center. A special feature this year includes The Good Life - an exhibition and book by Jasper Morrison, working with Lars Muller publishers, that documents the ‘what and how’ of a particular way of seeing, from Morrison's perspective. We have included in this pack our Top Ten (non-Camron clients) as well as maps, restaurants and useful addresses.

We look forward to seeing you in a few days’ time!

Judy Dobias Managing Director

ICFF PRESS RELEASES British European Design Group Celebrates 20 Years at the ICFF WHITE PLAINS, NY, MAY 6, 2014 The British European Design Group (BEDG) will mark its 20th straight year of exhibiting at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). In 1994, with its first contingent on the show floor of New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the BEDG announced its arrival as a force on the global design scene. In the two decades since, BEDG participants have won numerous ICFF Editors Awards. BEDG founder Karin-Beate Phillips says, “Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the BEDG at the ICFF is a very happy occasion. In the last two decades, the market for global design has grown exponentially. With our annual exhibit at the ICFF, we have played a significant role in extending the reach of international design across North America.” GLM senior vice president Kevin O’Keefe says, “In two decades of exhibiting at the ICFF, Karin-Beate Phillips and the participating companies of the BEDG contingent have been instrumental in cementing the ICFF’s position as North America’s primary event for global contemporary design. We have grown together over the years, and look forward to doing so as the market for great modern products continues to expand in new directions in the U.S. and around the world.” Since 1991, the BEDG has taken more than 4,800 British companies, institutions, and individuals to exhibit in key export markets and has accessed government and non-government funding to do so. One of 11 contingents at the 26th annual ICFF, the BEDG continues to be one of the ICFF’s largest exhibitors. This year’s participants number 55 companies: ABI Wright Design, Abigail Edwards, Ali Siahvoshi, Aluminium Case Company, Amina Technologies LTD, Badgers of Bohemia, Barbara Chandler, Camilla Meijer, Cumbria Crystal, CYCLOC, Daniel Heath, David Hayward Design LTD, DDQ Design LTD, Digetex, Donald Alexander, Donald Baugh, Dupenny, Giles Miller Studio, Hannah Nunn, Heal's, Helen Yardley, Innermost, Jeremy Cole Ltd., Jess Shaw, Liqui Design, Logical Art Design LTD T / A Beyond Objet, Macmaster, Marc Schulthess, Melin Tregwynt Mill, Mineheart, Naomi Paul Studio, Nick Davis , Nick Munro, Northumbria University, Occipinti, Philip Hardaker, Philip Watts Design, Quirk & Rescue, Rachel O'Neill, RawStudio, Rohan Clarke, Space 1a Design, Steuart Padwick , Studiojonmale, Studiomold T / A Mineheart, Teasel England LTD, TOBYhouse, Tom Faulkner, Tom Kirk Lighting, Tooth & Claw, Turnstyle Designs, WALLPAPER by deborah bowness, Yorgos Studio LTD.


ICFF PRESS RELEASES Philippines CITEM Returns to the ICFF with a Contingent of 15 Companies WHITE PLAINS, NY, APRIL 15, 2014

The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) announces the return of the Philippines Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), after 13-years.

We’re thrilled to welcome CITEM back to North America’s premier platform for global design after a hiatus.

ICFF Power Range: Harmonic Convergence WHITE PLAINS, NY, MARCH 6, 2014 The 26th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), North America’s platform for global design, running May 17-20 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, is recognized for the power range of products – from accessible to luxury. This year, with the U.S. luxury design market on the upsurge, the ICFF promises to welcome a tidal wave of pent-up market activity to the tune of 200 million USD in new orders*. Yes, it’s economics 101. Think supply and demand, and the timely convergence of exhibitors and attendees. Recent studies by Bain & Company and Ledbury Research indicate the U.S. luxury market is expanding at three times the pace of a stagnant Europe; that it has exceeded the growth rate in China and the Pacific Rim; and that it is expected to be the most important market for luxury for the next five years. With Credit Suisse proclaiming the U.S. is minting millionaires at practically the speed of light – the spawning grounds of 1.7 of the world’s 1.8 new 7-figure incomes over the past 12 months – who’s to argue? As in recent years past, the ICFF has experienced a flood of growth as manufacturers from Europe and around the globe look to connect with the more than 29,500 interior designers, architects, retailers, representatives, distributors, facility managers, developers, manufacturers, store designers, and visual merchandisers. The exhibitor roster is already 30% bigger than 2013. Available space is a real issue, and the ICFF is now on the verge of wait listing companies. Attendance is also trending upwards – significantly. In 2013, the ICFF turnout grew by 12%. Early forecasts suggest the same double-digit uptick for 2014. And why not? In addition to the sheer quality and quantity of design, the ICFF presents a remarkable program of special features. The annual special features are always educational, insightful, and fun: ICFF Talks, ICFF Studio, Schools, designboom mart, ICFF Editors Awards, ICFF Opening Night Party at The Museum of Modern Art, and ICFF Public Day. Additional highlights will include: Textiles, Jasper Morrison: The Good Life, and ASID at the ICFF. * Based on Convention Data Services ICFF 2013 Exhibitor Traffic Report

Alessi Research Lab

Alessi, founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi, has been able to develop a policy of design excellence which has made it one of the leading internationally renowned Italian Design Factories. It has reconciled its typically industrial needs with its tendency to consider itself as a ‘research laboratory in the field of the applied arts’. More The ‘ALESSI RESEARCH LAB – A selection of recent projects from young designers’ exhibition at WantedDesign 2014 will highlight some of the research and workshops that the company has conducted and developed in collaboration with several designers on an international basis. Each project on display will present a specific topic and the related research developed around it: from the innovation brought into the bar & wine typology by Giulio Iacchetti to the research in the working of metal wire by Pauline Deltour; from the digital design works of Tom Kovac, to the manufacturing of the stainless steel sheet through laser cut and folding shown through the designs by Abi Alice, to nature observation based design by Adam Cornish. Other topics are: a research on LED lighting by Giovanni Alessi Anghini, Gabriele Chiave and Frédéric Gooris; geometry and color explored by matali crasset; the re-interpretation of the historical typology of the wire basket by Pierre Charpin; irony and methaphor shown through a series of small functional objects, the Objets-Bijoux. On display also some of the most recent workshops: the Alessi Metal workshop with the Cranbrook Academy of Art, a workshop with the Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne (ECAL) and #Concrete In Design, a collaboration with the Italian company Italcementi which shows the continuous interest of Alessi in experimenting also with new material like, in this case, concrete. All projects are presented through a series of selected materials (prototypes, sketches, molds, videos and other) in order to give the public a behind the scenes look of Alessi and their research.

BROOKLYN INDUSTRY CITY 220 36th Street, Brooklyn, NY


The international design world will descend on Sunset Park, Brooklyn, this May as Industry City and WantedDesign team up for 11 days of design-centric events and workshops in conjunction with NYCxDESIGN. “As Brooklyn emerges as a new hub for the design world, we’ve seen Industry City grow into a dynamic community of 21st century makers across a wide variety of disciplines,” says Andrew Kimball, CEO of Industry City. “Both the creative and the production components of the design industry are key to growing the innovation economy at Industry City and in the borough. Our partnership with WantedDesign seeks to open up the design world to the public and expand opportunities for the design world in Brooklyn.” “The site of Industry City is quite unique and very inspiring and has everything needed to become a real destination and home to a multidisciplinary design community for years to come. It is a great opportunity for WantedDesign to extend its vision to Brooklyn by bringing a lively program with city organizations, design collectives, and makers to create a Brooklyn design hub for the entire NYCxDESIGN celebration.” INDUSTRY CITY / DESIGN, CURATED BY WANTEDDESIGN – MAY 10-20 12-6pm Open daily (closed Mondays & Wednesday) 2nd Avenue between 36th and 37th Street Brooklyn (map) Easy acces by subway: D, N, R (36th St.station) Shuttles: from WantedDesign (269 11th Avenue, West Chelsea) to Industry City (Sunset Park, Brooklyn) available May 17-18, 12pm-6pm More information and full list of participants and program: DOWNLOAD Industry City day by day program here



INDUSTRY CITY, BROOKLYN PARTICIPANTS AT INDUSTRY CITY / DESIGN Sebastian Errazuriz presents The Giant Golden Piñata WantedDesign and Industry City invited Sebastian to create an installation piece that could be inaugurated for the opening of NYCxDesign. “I had just reached my first year of working at the new studio in Sunset Park and I wanted to create a piece that could be festive and be part of a celebration. Coming from South America I immediately remembered the classic birthday Piñatas filled with candy that the kids would hit blindfolded. It occurred to me that it would be amazing to build a giant piñata that could be hung between buildings and invite my colleagues and all the young designers to grab some sticks and have a go at it during the party*.” (*May 20th, starting 5pm) Chilean born, New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz at only 28 years of age became the second living South American artist to have work auctioned at Sotheby’s Important Twentieth Century Design. He was selected one of the top emerging international designers by I.D magazine in 2007. He received the title of Chilean Designer of the Year in 2009. In 2011 he was selected for the Compasso d’ Oro.

François Chambard is the owner of UM Project, a Brooklyn-based furniture design company. UM stands for Users and Makers. Borrowing cues from industry and craft, UM Project’s work transcends the qualities of both the handmade and the mass-produced. Traditional techniques and archetypes are transformed for the modern eye and mind, with a special interest in material combination and connections. The Odd Harmonics collection combines different influences that yield a rich and colorful language: mid-century design, Bauhaus-Pop, Memphis, Steampunk. Like other creations by François Chambard, the success of the pieces relies on original design, impeccable execution, the use of rich and honest materials, as well as the emphasis on connections and details.


INDUSTRY CITY, BROOKLYN Wearing Cities by Simo Neri in collaboration with Jun Mizumachi (sound design), Eunhwa Kim (fashion design), Gabrielle Lubtchansky (video) Wearing Cities is a meditation on urban rhythms. Every city has a particular color palette, a unique, recognizable presence. Ordinary urban details that we take for granted enter our consciousness subliminally, and we try to make sense out of this chaos. Focusing on the cities I know best, I have selected features that evoke a sensory geography of place. By deconstructing these visual perceptions and recomposing them in sequential grids, I am declaring a personal “ownership” of these cities. I invited fellow artists ‒ a sound designer, a fashion designer, a videographer ‒ to join me in this project. Jun Mizumachi captures sounds from his environment, and then breaks them down digitally, creating original compositions that express the abstract moods of city life. Eunhwa Kim translates two-dimensional art into a living, three-dimensional, moving form that can be worn as a symbol of belonging. A special wearable theme, “Inside/Outside”, is worn by a random selection of city dwellers and presented in an original video by Gabrielle Lubtchansky.

The American Design Club is pleased to present Field Day—a communal and retail space inside Industry City, developed in collaboration with WantedDesign and launching during NYCxDESIGN, May 10th-20th. Part pop-up, part town hall Field Day aims to support New York’s design community by providing a space in Industry City to relax and learn as well as purchase items designed by America’s best and brightest. In addition to functioning as a retail store, Field Day will also be the sight of several events designed to bring like-minded individuals together, including presentations, parties, and even a little competition. Bhold “Founded in Soho, New York, bhold designs smart, functional accessories that make your life easier – we use 3D printing to design better and faster.

May 17 - 21, 2014 Location: 268 Mulberry Street - New York From May 17 to May 21, Gawker Media’s flagship technology and design blog Gizmodo will host the Home of the Future, an immersive, real-life vision of the urban home of tomorrow. In collaboration with Brooklyn-based firm Bernheimer Architecture, Gizmodo will be custom-building an apartment in a converted gymnasium in Soho, and filling it with a range of life-simplifying and energy-saving innovations, from cutting edge kitchenware to virtual entertainment and everything in between. In the Gizmodo Home of the Future, realized with the help of Verizon Wireless, visitors will find both the most accessible and most aspirational technologies for enhancing our homes, now and in the future. And the Home of the Future is more than just a physical space: it’s a cavalry of ideas meant to change the way we live. As such, we’re also inviting all of the region’s design buffs, architecture enthusiasts, and tech innovators to visit the Home of the Future, where we’ll be running a series of live public events, including workshops, demos, meet-ups, film screenings, and more. The space, open to the public and offering free WiFi throughout the day, will also be soundtracked with a handpicked playlist of futuristic ambience from our friends at Other Music, and we’ll even be premiering an exclusive new beer of the future, using experimental hops, brewed for us by the mad scientists at Sixpoint. Check our website for more details as our calendar of events and workshops takes shape.
