Now in its third year, the Collective Design Fair has forged a commanding presence on the annual New York Design Week calendar, reliably showcasing a carefully curated selection of 20th century and contemporary works from established and emerging galleries worldwide. Special to the fair this time around is designer Jonah Takagi's site-specific Colosseum-inspired installation completed for Artsy, the online art hub that's exhibiting all the Collective Design Fair exhibitors on the web. And for the first time ever, the show has also partnered with Sight Unseen Offsite, another big NY Design Week event, for a satellite installation featuring six up and coming American designers, including Mimi Jung, whose woven wall is shown above.
Below, a run-down of the other top moments from the show, which is running from May 13 to 17 at west Soho's Skylight Clarkson Sq, a 60,000-square-foot raw, white studio space on one ground floor.
