New York Design Week 2015: Snapshots of Collective Design Fair

Furniture & Lighting

Collective Design Fair 2015 Wexler GalleryWe’re in New York City this week for the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and the subsidiary creative events throughout the city that comprise New York Design Week. Yesterday, we attended the Collective Design fair, located on the western edge of Soho, an event which brings together both established and emerging New York City-based practices across various design disciplines. Here, fresh from the 2Modern Instagram feed, a few of the many contemporary design pieces that made us stop and look twice, along with the promise of much more to come in the next few days. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for more on-site reporting from New York.
