Following Milan’s enormously popular Salone del Mobile on the world design calendar, New York Design Week (May 11-23) is a vibrant week-long festival showcasing the best of the American creative scene. Taking place in tandem with the city’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair and in venues popping up from Brooklyn to Manhattan, this year has seen a boost in international participation with designer collaborations and fairs like WantedDesign dedicated to promoting international design.

The first May Day Exhibition began in 2016 when Medellín Design Week director David Del Valle wanted to present the different materials, processes, concepts and advances produced by the Colombian design industry, leading to the launch of the group’s first New York Design Week exhibition in 2017 at the WantedDesign Brooklyn event.
