Now in its fourth year, the Collective Design Fair in west Soho, NYC, has cemented itself as a commanding presence on the annual New York Design Week calendar, featuring works from a global roster of established and emerging galleries worldwide.

This year’s fair will showcase an exciting program of special installations, curator-led tours, and Collective Conversations featuring designers, gallerists, educators and cultural innovators exploring vital topics in the field of design.

Not to be missed is and suitably located within the entry hall of the Collective Fair, is ‘Capture’ an explorative collaboration of Rome and New York City between NOSANCHUK and Flavor Paper. ‘Capture’ combines the installation of the “Super Series” kaleidoscopic wallpapers based on David Nosanchuk’s photographs of art and architecture, for Flavor Paper with his most recent work, “Louie”, a 3D printed pendant derived from a laser mapping of a cornice detail of Louis Sullivan’s Bayard-Condict building in NYC, for .exnovo.

The ‘Super Series’ wallpapers were launched in the fall 2013 and have been met with international recognition. Since then, the works have been acquired for the permanent collections of the Cooper Hewitt, a Smithsonian Institution and Les Art Decoratifs, Paris.

New to the fair for 2016 is Collective Concept, a capsule presentation where contemporary designers working in lighting, furnishings, ceramics or textiles are encouraged to explore new directions and reconnect with the roots of their design thinking. Each designer will create a fully realized environment onsite, providing a rare view into the creative practice.

 Here Fort Standard, a collaborative partnership between Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings will be debuting their new collection entitled ‘Qualities of Material’ The collection pushes natural materials such as wood, stone and leather beyond conventional limits and applications thereby delving further into the experimental dimension of their design process.

Also part of Collective Concept is Lindsey Adelman. Founded in 2006, Adelman’s studio signature aesthetic was born with the release of its first product: the Branching Bubble chandelier, which combines organic elements of blown glass with more rational machined components. Since then, the studio has explored that same visual tension throughout a range of products and disciplines, working with an expanded materials palette to create products from concrete tile to wallpaper.

An exclusive exhibition of graduate work from the Cranbrook 3D Design Department has also been curated for the 2016 fair. Fine Design for the End of the World will explore how today’s most pressing challenges—such as social and economic inequalities, rampant material consumption, and environmental degradation—can become subjects for critical and poetic reflection in design objects.
