Designers: Apply for WantedDesign’s 2020 Launch Pad

We’re excited to announce that we are once again teaming up with WantedDesign to sponsor the 2020 Launch Pad at WantedDesign Manhattan in May 2020 during NYCxDESIGN, presented by EQ3! Since its premiere in 2014, Launch Pad has helped connect new and emerging designers with manufacturers and legacy brands like Design Within Reach and Nanimarquina to put their design concepts/prototypes into production. Like all the years before, there will be a winner chosen for two categories, Furniture/Interiors and Lighting. Designers and studios will present their ideas in front of an esteemed jury led by our very own Jaime Derringer, founder of Design Milk.

Designers are invited to apply here for Launch Pad happening May 2020 at WantedDesign Manhattan! New for 2020, WantedDesign is moving locations and joining ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) at the Jacob K. Javitz Convention Center.
