We have visited and subsequently reported back to our readership on NYC Design Week many times in the past. This year is different, however, with a new name and a good deal of excitement and buzz to boot. For the first time, New York City officially launches a week in honor of design (it’s more than seven days, but do remember everything is bigger in New York City!). The twelve-day long festival (May 10-21) has been re-branded as NYCxDesign and features city-wide events on everything from fashion and graphic design, to interior design and architecture.
We made a beeline this past weekend to Bklyn Designs, which is being promoted by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and showcases a jury-selected group of Brooklyn-based designers. This gave us the perfect opportunity to say hello to some old faces and welcome some of the new ones fortunate, and talented, enough to be representing Brooklyn – one of the country’s creative strongholds.
We hope you enjoy this snapshot of images from our visit to Bklyn Designs. Stay tuned for more details on this and other events we’ll be taking in during NYCxDesign.
