Collective Concept @ICFF

Collective Design has partnered with ICFF to provide a platform for independent designers during NYCxDesign in May

 

Inaugurated in 2016, Collective Concept began as a capsule presentation within Collective Design fair where contemporary designers working in lighting, furnishings, ceramics or textiles are encouraged to reveal new thinking or the ideas behind their successful and well-known designs. It has seen tremendous success and has gained a reputation as a launching pad for new work, new ideas and ambitious installations.

 

With the fair’s move to March in 2018, Collective Design has partnered ICFF, to provide a platform for independent designers during NYCxDesign in May, thus the launch of Collective Concept @ ICFF. Inspired by the process-based explorations that have become a key part of their programming, a handful of established product designers are invited to share what they consider “inspirational” or “alternative” thinking with the audience, revealing a newly conceived product, a revolutionary technology, an unusual pairing of design talents or a unique material used in a thought-provoking way. Collective Design will select a curated group of designers to present in a dedicated section within the fair.
