WantedDesign New York 2017: novelties and new trends

Top highlights from the 7th edition of the New York City event fair including Manhattan and Brooklyn

Francesco Mainardi

WantedDesign is a platform dedicated to promoting design and fostering the international creative community, taking place during May’s NYCxDESIGN in both Manhattan and Brooklyn

WantedDesign New York is back. A rich schedule of exhibitions and meetings to attend to during the NYCxDesign festival in two suggestive main locations: the Chelsea Terminal Stores and Industry City, Brooklyn. As media partner to the 7th edition of the fair, Elle Decor will report all the novelties and the latest trends, launched in the last few days during the NYC Design Week.

WantedDesign Brooklyn

The first to open was the Brooklyn show, hosted in a suggestive post-industrial setting a few meters away from the sea of Industrial City. This was the most experimental section of the entire exhibition project, with a special attention dedicated to students, through a series of workshops held by international design schools and the organization of the first Wanted Career Day. 



As one of the major exhibits in the fair, the Transatlantic Creative Exchange is back to Brooklyn for the second time, in collaboration with the French Embassy. Five French-American duos have been created for this edition, each one made of a designer and a manufacturer of different origin, invited to realize a trans-geographic design production. Excellent results prove how this kind of cultural contamination always generates significant improvement, as in the cases of designer and glassmaker DH McNabb in partnership with Fondation d’entreprise Hermès and Cristallerie Saint-Louis, Pauline Deltour and Corning Museum of Glass / Glass Lab, Constance Guisset and UHURU (see above and opening photos).

WantedDesign Manhattan

“To be here in New York makes us feel quite privileged, the place is so vibrant with so many different cultures and new ideas” declared WantedDesign co-founders Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat. And truly the location chosen for WantedDesign Manhattan is a multiple, stimulating platform seething with numerous international presences (Mexico – see photo above – and Argentina, Quebec, France, Norway, Poland, Brazil and Barcelona). 


The event featured a remarkable Italian participation. Alcantara, Fontana Arte, Golran + Moroso and Alessi, with the exhibition Alessi IN-possible - Before an idea is brought to life, dedicated to their decade-long research on design, stood out among the many Made in Italy brands. 


Moreover, WantedDesign has announced Studio Gorm as the 2017 recipient of the American Design Honors for up-and-coming American designers, celebrating the occasion with a small solo exhibit. 


Human Nature is the title of a showcase presenting 17 of the brightest and most talented Dutch designers at the Chelsea 17 exhibition space. A research on different materials, new aesthetics and innovative solutions, discussing the future of design. Among the various projects, we have selected works by Michiel Martens and Jetske Visser, Renate Vos and Floor Nijdeken (see photo above).
