Leading international design show, designjunction returns to New York in May 2016, with the second edition of its satellite event.
This year designjunction – which launched in the US in May 2015 – will collaborate with Dwell on Design, America’s largest design event, bringing together 30 leading European design brands and smaller cutting-edge enterprises.
The show will also be home to an agenda-setting three-day talks programme – curated by Dwell magazine editor-in-chief, Amanda Dameron – where industry experts and thought leaders from all sectors of the creative industries will ignite conversation and spark debate.
Deborah Spencer, managing director of designjunction, said: “This is an exciting collaboration which we believe will deliver a diverse, exciting and vibrant show by presenting designjunction’s premier European design brands alongside Dwell on Design’s industry-renowned talk programme.
“New York remains a hugely important market for designjunction, providing our European brands with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their products in one of the most stylish cities on the planet.”
Amanda Dameron, editor-in-chief of Dwell, said: “Dwell is thrilled to partner with designjunction and join the design dialogue taking place in New York in May 2016. By bringing our unique narratives to a live stage, we hope to engage with the design community on how the built environment drives the modern world.”
Edward Hogikyan, senior vice president of NYCxDESIGN said: “We are pleased to welcome designjunction and Dwell on Design as first time partners for NYCxDESIGN. After holding 500 events throughout the city in 2015, NYCxDESIGN 2016 is shaping up to be even bigger and better, with designjunction and Dwell on Design a key highlight of the event.”
