Bringing together multidisciplinary designers, design fairs, cultural institutions, brands, universities, and collectives, NYCxDESIGN provides a unique platform to share, celebrate, and collaborate across the field and with the general public. Forming one of the most important international design weeks, the festival shines a light on established practices, mid-career designers, and emerging talent from across the city and America, presenting the best in the field today. NYCxDESIGN is open to the public beginning on Tuesday, May 12, and affiliated projects and events will be on view and taking place at several hundred venues across the city through Wednesday, May 20.

The 2020 edition of NYCxDESIGN will feature a wide range of city-wide activations, such as collaborations from cultural institutions, site-specific installations, retail partner events, and more. For the first time, NYCxDESIGN will be developing its own initiatives in collaboration with a range of designers and cultural partners in each borough throughout the city. This will range from an interactive project with Ghetto Gastro at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx and engagements at Stickbulb at RUX Studios in Queens, Brooklyns Industry City and the Brooklyn Navy Yard as part of NYCxDESIGN‘s initiative to host focused days dedicated to design in each borough during the course of the festival.

NYCxDESIGN encourages designers to host open studios on their respective borough day to invite the trade and enthusiasts into their creative spaces. In addition, NYCxDESIGN will produce a series of film screenings across the boroughs in partnership with the Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF), presented by Eventscape. Each borough day will also feature a panel discussion produced by NYCxDESIGN. In order to further engage across boroughs, NYCxDESIGN will debut a traveling recording studio, allowing designers and enthusiasts the opportunity to record their thoughts on a design question posed each day, which will be collected, archived, and expanded upon by the festival.
