3Novices:Dezeen’s events, talks and parties during NYCxDesign 2017

Dezeen will be busy in New York during the second half of this month’s citywide design festival, as we co-host a variety of events with companies including Tom Dixon, WeWork  and Vitra.

New York’s annual celebration of design is stretching across almost the entire month of May this year, bookended by the Collective Design fair and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).

This week and next, a cohort from Dezeen’s London office will join our team in New York to help cover the myriad of launches and exhibitions taking place around the city, and bring you the highlights.

We’re involved in a series of events across the fortnight, including a talk with WeWork and Hem, and parties with Tom Dixon and Vitra.

Dezeen is also media partner for the WantedDesign trade shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and together we’ll be putting on a public closing party for NYCxDesign.

Philippe Malouin's Study for Screens

Dezeen x Hem x WeWork
Thursday 18th May, 7-9:30pm

Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs will host a panel discussion with design brand Hem founder and CEO Petrus Palmér, co-working company WeWork‘s head of interior design Brittney Hart, and London-based designer Philippe Malouin.

The participants will discuss the future of the workplace, and how design needs to change in the digital age as nomad working becomes the norm. The talk begins at 7pm and will be followed by cocktails until 9:30pm.

The event is strictly invitation only, but Dezeen will be live streaming the talk on our Facebook page and publishing the video on our site.
