Gentner

NYCxDESIGN, New York City’s annual celebration of design, attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees and designers from across the globe each May.

This year’s edition, May 11–23, 2018, celebrates a world of design and showcases over a dozen design disciplines through events taking place across the city’s five boroughs.

Design devotees look to America’s creative scene this month at New York Design Week (11–23 May). From Brooklyn to Manhattan, the concrete jungle is heating up with new launches, exhibitions and pop-ups. The event’s original cornerstone, ICFF is joined by group shows and new boutiques, plus 2018 sees more international collaborations than ever before.

The results of a personal year-long study of the creative process is what the Chicago-based design studio Gentner (above + cover) is putting in the spotlight at this year’s ICFF. Entitled ‘The Fraction Collection’, the new line of furniture, lighting and objects continues to articulate founder Christopher Genter’s sculptural approach, while experimenting with more distilled, adventurous forms.

 

Fernando Mastrangelo and Anna Karlin

Fernando Mastrangelo and Anna Karlin found a shared interest in where sculpture and design meet following a group show organized by Mastrangelo last Autumn. Using textured materials including celadon blue cement, crystal quartz and black sand, the pair form a serious of limited editions that debut at New York Design Week.

 

Muuto

For its first showing at New York Design Week, Muuto has created a suitably Scandinavian setting to show its latest collection. Located in the Flatiron district, the space will showcase new additions, including Cecilie Manz’s Workshop coffee table, new sofas and seating from Anderssen & Voll, the Enfold sideboard by Thomas Bentzen and a new Base high table by Studio Tolvanen.

 

Kiwi

Kiwi furniture label Resident brings its new seating and sofa collection over to American shores for its first large-scale show in New York City. Taking over a 3000 square-foot gallery space in Nolita, the new offerings are being exhibited in an environment designed by interior architect Rufus Knight, and also features other popular Resident lighting and furniture pieces to complete the sublime picture.

 

Radnor

Radnor has always wanted to produce its own collection – a box that’s been ticked this month for New York Design Week with the unveiling of the Radnor Made collection. Set inside the David Chipperfield-designed residence, The Bryant, the brand creates an enviable setting for the launch, titled Material Interiors.

 

WallpaperSTORE* / Poliform

WallpaperSTORE* is joining forces with Italian brand Poliform for its first US pop-up. Staged inside the furniture specialist’s flagship, the retail haven will offer its refined range, from tableware to kitchen accessories by a roster of global design studios including Minimalux (left), Phil Cuttance, Editions Milano, House of Today and Paola C (right).

 

Camille Walala

British graphic artist Camille Walala is bringing her colorful sense of geometry to the streets of Brooklyn with her largest building project to date. In honor of WantedDesign Brooklyn, Walala will reveal a permanent work covering the seven-story façade of a neglected building in Industry City. Inspired by the repetition of the building’s windows and using a palette of sunset tones, the prominent art piece will leave its mark on the Sunset Park neighborhood long after the fair has concluded.

 

Sight Unseen / Twyla

Sight Unseen’s Offsite exhibition has a knack for getting the best out of its participants. As part of its collaboration theme this year, the curatorial body has paired the Austin-based online art platform Twyla, with a quartet of architectural photographers to create Ratio, its first line of limited edition wallpapers. Each photograph has been transformed by a contemporary painter (also selected by Sight Unseen) into a captivating design that leaps off the wall.
