NYCxDesign, New York’s official design event, begins on Tuesday 3 May, offering two full weeks of exciting design shows happening across the city. Here COVER offers a guide to the best rugs and textiles that will be on display.
Designjunction/Dwell on Design – Art Beam, 540 W 21st St (13-15 May)
The new event on the block for NYCxDesign is the collaborative show being held by Designjunction and Dwell on Design. As a media partner with the show COVER will be distributed free during the three-day event. Exhibitors so far include Melin Tregwynt, a Welsh fabric brand that has just started producing rugs, and Anne Kyyrö Quinn, who crafts beautiful felt wall panels. They will sit alongside design brands artek, dwell and muuto. Brand names still to be announced. The event features a vast range of lectures on a variety of design subjects – from driverless cars to contemporary restaurant design.
