Throughout the year, Collective Design hosts conversations and other programs putting design at the center of lively debate. At the fair, the Collective Conversations series welcomes the audience to take a seat next to esteemed artists, curators and others shaping ideas about today’s material culture. In 2017 (above), Dung Ngo, Editor in Chief of AUGUST, and Shohei Shigematsu, Partner at OMA, joined Aric Chen, curator at M+, for a discussion on the intersection of design and travel sponsored by Bookmarc, our exclusive Book Partner.
Collective Design’s popular studio visits open up private workspaces for demonstrations, discussion and the chance to get together over a cocktail with others interested in how the creative process unfolds. Designers and artists with diverse practices enjoy our intimate gatherings as much as we do! Join us for future visits in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and elsewhere—our program continues to grow.
Fluid, wide-ranging and continually growing, the Collective Design community meets throughout the year for events that reinforce our creative networks and encourage discussion. Sponsors and partners play an active role in shaping these get-togethers. Past events have included an intimate dinner in the Los Angeles studio of the Haas Brothers and a festive 2017 dinner (above) at The New York Edition, our hotel partner.
