2016 New York Design Week Recap

The DesignBloc was in New York for Design Week (NYCxDesign) and we are excited to bring you our highlights. Check it out!


We kicked off the New York weekend at The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). As always, it took place in the Javitz Center Convention Center. It's a big show, but we favor this show more than NeoCon since it has lots of variety, but it's all still manageable to see in a few hours. It takes place in May in New York City, but this year it's officially launching its Miami show this October. Miami - Get Ready!

These colorful lights are 3D printed!

These chairs are heated, and way more comfortable than they look!


After the conference, it was time to party! Every year, on the same Saturday as ICFF, the furniture showrooms in SoHo open their doors to the public and have some great parties. The streets of the Design District get flooded and we took part in what we like to call the Designers Bar Crawl...yes, most showrooms come equipped with a bar and a DJ booth! This year, the team made our way down Greene and Wooster Streets and started the night at Cappellini's showroom. Then along the way, we made stops at FLOR, Cassina, FLOS as well (we had a blast using FLOR's photobooth!). To cap it off we ended the night at BluDot's 10th Year Anniversary party celebrating DesignMilk....very fun! See some of the photos of the shenanigans below:
