Save the Dates for NYC X Design 2018, May 11-23 ~ a celebration of over a dozen design disciplines across all five boroughs.
Many of the events and tours are exciting, new spaces or exhibits & installations that have been in the news ~ like A Prelude to the Shed and Essex Street Market, and the beautiful Yinka Shonibare: Wind Sculpture (SG) I.
We surfed the 2018 NYC X Design site, and listed below a few events, talks + installations that caught our eye.
Beginning at the 2018 Design Pavilion NYC, with the theme ‘From This Day Forward,’ located in Times Square, and serving as a public hub for the city’s official design weeks. Mossgrove is one of the installations expected to be on view, along with the Design Kiosk, Design Market NYC, Design Talks NYC, and a series of installations and performances ~ all free and open to the public.
The Architectural Ornament and Salvage Tour of one of our favorite places ~ Demolition Depot. The Tour will take place on May 19th from 1-2pm, at the showroom located at 216 East 125th Street, East Harlem.
