NYCxDesign 2015: WantedDesign Manhattan Part 2

We hit one of the biggest parts of NYCxDesign, WantedDesign, for Part 2, to finish giving you a taste of some of our favorite designs. Take a look at some more of the goods we were excited about. [See Part 1 here]


Stéphane Leathead, designer and creative director of Designarium, created the Exocet Chair, a design that can be rotated around into various configurations for different kinds of sitting.


Mexican designer Alexis del Toro cabinet features a ridged front that’s partially painted giving it a mountain-like finish. The interior was painted a bold red.


Textile designer Elodie Blanchard created a geometric display using HBF Textiles that she designed.


Elodie’s Moving Blanket fabric for HBF Textiles which was inspired by US cities.


The Oves Chair, by Brian P. Keyes, is a low sitting easy chair with felt that loops through the maple frame, which offers a great place to store magazines.


TOKEN’s cantilevered chair with a steel frame and wooden arms is topped off with sleek black leather that’s been sewn together.


Zipperer’s corbu side table is gilded in 24-karat gold on the surface with blue graffiti paint peeking through the grooves. The geometric form was inspired by urban housing projects, like the Ferragut Housing Project in Dumbo.


Déjate Querer, part of the México Territorio Creativo exhibit, displayed a handmade, hexagonal rug/mat that was inspired by the universe with its mystical black hole.


Organized by, the Inside Out. Polish Graphic Design display was completely intriguing with a curated collection of the best Polish graphic design and illustration out there. The above project, Letters, is based on Marian Misiak’s font that was produced by Zieta Prozessdesign in three-dimensional form with FiDU – metal-shaping technology and then shaped with the help of pressurized air.


These blankets are designed by Kristine Five Melvær and made by Norwegian manufacturer Røros Tweed and feature a decorative graphic pattern in grey and off-white.


And last, but certainly not least, our sister site, Adorn Milk, was part of WantedDesign’s pop-up shop and sold some of the best geometric and architectural inspired jewelry out there. If you missed the show you can always jump on the site and check out the jewelry there!
