Located in Union Square, this activity will intersect with the Beaux Art-style architecture and 21st-century. With the support of the interiors of Spain this fantastic event will happen in the airspace of the Welcome Desk Hotel, which has its windows to Park Avenue South.
From the collaboration between ICFF and designboom come marketplace, Europe’s leading design-related e-zine, stops traffic every spring. The format is classic: the zine’s editors select the items for sale in a mesmerizing design bazaar under the Javits Center’s roof thrumming with activity for the ICFF’s duration. At the designboom mart, a true nexus of design culture and design commerce, the virtual becomes tangible – and the better for it. Participating designers show one to three products, network, and sell their design souvenirs to help cover travel expenses.
Among these initiatives there are many more to watch or even participate if you have intentions. This is an event to attend with much diversity and culture coming from all over the world.
