Curated Exhibitions You Can Bring Home.
Collective Design was launched in 2013 by architect Steven Learner and a visionary group of gallerists, curators, collectors and interior designers. Held in New York City each spring as part of New York’s Design Week, it was the first of its kind; a space for galleries and designers to elevate their visibility, for established creative studios to showcase new work, and for the design community to discover new talent.
Collective Design is known for working with industry leaders: international galleries including Jousse Entreprise, Friedman Benda, R & Company, legendary designers Gaetano Pesce, Johanna Grawunder and Nendo, cultural institutions such as The Noguchi Museum, Design Academy Eindhoven, and Cranbrook Academy of Art and brands like Cadillac, Pomellato and Marc Jacobs Bookmarc all featured immersive installations at the fair.
Collective Design was the first fair to feature independent designers, with early presentations from Fernando Mastrangelo, Fort Standard, Harry Nuriev, and Apparatus, offering creative makers visibility and industry professionals a platform to source new, vetted talent.
