Creativity reigns during NYCxDESIGN, the City's annual celebration of design. The event is fashioned by some of the most renowned names in the design world and beyond. The multifaceted programming comprises exhibitions, installations, talks, trade shows and open studios. Among the shows and festivals under the NYCxDESIGN umbrella are Brooklyn Designs, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), Design Pavilion and WantedDesign.
This year, festivalgoers can partake in a set of specially crafted beverages as part of DRINKSxDESIGN. Attendees are invited to visit design-focused restaurants to enjoy an NYCxDESIGN–inspired cocktail (or several—we won’t judge!). See the collection of participating venues below, and for more information about the festival, visit nycxdesign.com.
