Everything About NYCxDESIGN 2019 in New York City ⇒ From the 10th to the 22nd of May, the city of New York is hosting the annual event that celebrates design and attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees and designers across the globe. The event celebrates a world of design and showcases over a dozen design disciplines through exhibitions, installations, trade shows, panels, product launches, open studios, and more. And, like design itself, NYCxDESIGN is everywhere, with events taking place across the city’s five boroughs. Today CovetED will show you everything you need to know and can’t miss on this upcoming event in the city that never sleeps.
When it comes to design, no other city compares to NYC. With leaders and innovators in furniture design, graphic design, architecture, interior design, fashion, and more, the city is both an inspiration and critical component to success for many designers, entrepreneurs, and design firms.

Wanted Design Brooklyn
Wanted Design Manhattan
Wanted Design is a platform dedicated to promoting design and fostering the international community. The event will return to Brooklyn’s Industry city with more participants than ever. Graduate students from over 30 international schools are expected to present their work. In Manhattan, SVA’s Products of Design MFA students will present Tools for the Apocalypse, a showcase of products designed for life after a climate change-induced apocalypse. Each contribution is grouped thematically into one of four categories (fire, water, earth, and air) and addresses the evolution of essential materials in a time of dramatic ecological uncertainty.

On the architecture side, Fernando Mastrangelo Studio will be showing a full-scale tiny home from cement, glass, sand, and silica. It will contain a living room, bedroom, and outdoor garden. Following a kick-off party at the studio’s space in Brooklyn, the house will be placed on a trailer and moved around the city for a “Where’s Waldo” experience.
The Center for Architecture is also planning to get in on the action, and from May 14 through 18, interested architecture buffs can take a sneak peek of this year’s Archtober lineup. Both the “Building of the Day” tours, which will highlight five buildings across the city’s five boroughs, and Workplace Wednesday, where architecture studios open their doors to the public, will be reviewed.
While the details have yet to be finalized for the city’s five design districts, expect a collection of architectural walking tours, happy hours, and installations across New York’s various Design Districts (Downtown, Madison Avenue, TriBeCa, SoHo Design District, and NoMad).
