WANTEDDESIGN: NYC

In its usual chic fashion, WantedDesign—a yearlong international platform for the creative community—will culminate with exhibitions, talks, and installations in Manhattan (May 20–23 in Chelsea) and Brooklyn (May 17–23 at Industry City). For 2017, Wanted has named Eugene, Oregon–based Studio Gorm the recipient of the American Design Honors, presented with Bernhardt Design. We always come away inspired. wanteddesignnyc.com

Featuring more than 700 companies exhibiting their newest products, ICFF (May 21–24) is the anchor expo during NYCxDesign. This year, GRAY is a show media partner and sponsor of a bevy of PNW-centric booths, including Portland Design (Revolution Design House, Jefdesigns Studio, and Fix Studio); B.C. Wood and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry; and Seattle Design Section (Graypants, Urbancase, Urban Hardwoods, LightArt, LUMA Design Workshop, and JOIN Design). icff.com

ADDRESS: VANCOUVER

ADDRESS (May 24–28), produced by designer-maker Kate Duncan and curated by MaK Interiors designer Amber Kingsnorth, is now in its fourth year of elevating the maker market, with goods from more than 30 high-end designers and artisans on display and for sale in the historic 1907 Ellis Building. The annual opening party (mark your calendars for May 25) draws a teeming crowd of design-world cool kids—and this year, Duncan’s adding a preview event on May 24, featuring the GRAY “Design Minds” panel discussion on entrepreneurship, product design, and the creative hustle. addressassembly.com

ICFF TALKS: NYC

On May 23, GRAY senior editor Rachel Gallaher will moderate “You Are Here: Regional Design on the Map,” a panel discussion presented on the ICFF main stage with Global Affairs Canada. How does the place you’re from influence the design you create? Gallaher will explore the topic with Vancouver artist-designer Brent Comber; Peter Coolican of Toronto’s Coolican and Company; Darren Montgomery of Seattle’s Urbancase and Standard Socket; and Joe Gibson of Portland’s Revolution Design House. icff.com/conference/icff-talks h
