For the first time, designjunction, based out of the UK, will partner with Dwell on Design for NYCxDESIGN. The show will take place within the warehouse-style ArtBeam venue in New York’s cultural hotspot, Chelsea and is a must see during NYCxDESIGN.

The collaboration between designjunction—which launched in the US in May 2015—and Dwell on Design, will bring together 30 of designjunction’s premier European design brands along with Dwell on Design’s industry-renowned talk program – curated by Dwell magazine’s editor-in-chief and executive Vice President of content, Amanda Dameron – where industry experts and thought leaders from all sectors of the creative industries will ignite conversation and spark debate on the future of design.

Visitors can experience a pop-up workspace by WeWork and a cafe featuring new designs from Muuto and Vitra. Meanwhile on the speaker schedule is everything from fine dining, driverless cars to the art of boredom. Speakers over the 3 days will include Caroline Baumann, director of the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museums; creative husband-and-wife duo Dorothy Cosonas, creative director of KnollTextiles, and Tim deFiebre, furniture designer and a former assistant to the late Ward Bennett; Paulo Kos of West Elm and Devin Vermeulen of WeWork to name but a few.

The Keynote speaker on Friday, May 13 is legendary graphic designer Bob Gill who will make his last speaking appearance, on his perspectives on art and design over the past 65 years.
