Our Favorite Finds at New York Design Week 2019 — Part I
With our OFFSITE show taking a year off, and Collective Design retired, New York Design Week could have theoretically suffered a participatory hit. And yet that was very much not the case. Sure, the month’s cornucopia of events and launches felt scattered all over the city, from Bushwick to Industry City to our own presentation at Hudson Yards, making them significantly more challenging to navigate, but when Co. Design wrote last year that NYDW had come into its own as a cultural event, “more akin to fashion week or a film festival,” it very well may have been heralding a sea change. Below, we’ve rounded up more than 75 objects and exhibitions we dutifully scouted around town, including powerhouse show Next Level, with more from ICFF and Wanted to come tomorrow.
Kinder Modern x USM
Children’s design gallery Kinder Modern took over the USM showroom in Soho, rebuilding the brand’s Haller system into novel configurations and showcasing new work by its stable of designers.
