[TAKE FIVE] Can’t-Miss NYCxDesign Events We’re Ready to Attend
NYCxDesign has outgrown a single week. Its 2016 run is from May 3rd to May 17th, and over those days NYC becomes a hub for global conversations, exhibitions, and innovations in design. There’s so much to experience, we curated a few events from the extensive calendar that are can’t-misses for our interests.

Brooklyn design-goods retailer BEAM presents diverse collaborations involving the Italian creative lab Seletti, emphasizing the powerful synergy possible when designers collaborate to leverage each other’s unique strengths and expose their work to new audiences.
Beauty- Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial
Featuring more than 250 works by 63 designers from around the globe, Beauty tells the story of design as a creative engagement of the mind organized around seven themes: extravagant, intricate, ethereal, transgressive, emergent, elemental, and transformative.
Fashion Activism: Designing For Social Change
Inspired by the overview effect- the mental shift observed in astronauts looking down on Earth, gaining perspective on our role as global passengers- designer Celine Semaan Vernon created a collection to shine light on the Syrian refugee crisis and infuse us with a sense of social responsibility.
