The Best of ICFF, and More: Part Two of Our (Massive) NYCxDesign Roundup

It’s mind-boggling for us to think that just ten years ago, during our frequent business trips to Europe, we would constantly get asked if New York Design Week was worth visiting, and we would inevitably — if reluctantly — respond that no, it was not. But look at us now! We have not only one but TWO (or three?) New York Design Weeks, and this year they were packed with enough impeccably curated events to easily rival the London Design Festival. In addition to OFFSITE and the dozen exhibitions and launches that were part of our Sight Unseen Presents project, plus all the shows and projects we covered in our first NYCxDesign story earlier this month, there were so many good things on view last week that in addition to the massive roundup below, we’ll be publishing a couple more stories in the next few days on individual collections. New York Design Week has officially arrived.
