All the Designs to Watch Out for at NYC x Design 2015
Collective Design Fair 2015
“A sense of discovery is key to the experience of our fair,” says the founder Steven Learner, and the curated works seem to embody this intent. New York–based textile designer Liz Collins creates a woven tapestry installation live at the fair, putting art in dialogue with applied design as well as inviting viewers to grapple with the process of making. Ashira Israel from Brooklyn-based studio IN.SEK further explores transdisciplinary themes as she creates two spaces—a lab environment and an archaeological site—both intended to reveal the blurred boundaries between architecture, art, and design. Whether they are ideas of materiality, process, or culture, this collective effort promises to be sufficiently eccentric, exciting, and fun. —K.S.
