In May 2011 during the ICFF at Terminal Stores, we launched an exclusive design event for the industry, visitors and community of New York: WantedDesign.
We created WantedDesign nyc as a creative and convivial platform to bring together international designers, architects, interior designers, craftsmen, editors, manufacturers, curators and communication specialists. It is a place to showcase, discuss and share exciting, inspiring and innovative design and build relationships that result in new collaborations and projects.
Featuring a rich program of design workshops, conversation series, school projects, a pop-up store and lounges and cafes for people to relax and connect, WantedDesign is a true destination. It is a central point of exchange for the international design community during the New York design week.
The event continues to take place in the beautiful Landmark building, Terminal Stores /The Tunnel, on 11th Avenue and 28th Street, and its format reflects what New York is: multicultural, convivial, provocative, contrasted, innovative, full of energy and talent.
After the first annual WantedDesign, the feedback from visitors as well as the larger New York design scene was overwhelming. It supported our belief that New York really is a special place to celebrate design. We hope you will join us for the second edition on May 18-21, 2012 by participating, presenting, making, speaking or visiting!
