One thing that has puzzled me throughout all my 13 years living in New York City is that design fairs were kind of weak. Or the very few that took place only showed some mid-20th century modern pieces camouflaged with vintage, antiques and some other random selections. But no more. The Collective Design Fair, was created and conceived by Steven Learner to fill that void in New York City and he accomplished the objective with bells and whistles. Pier 57 was transformed into a massive and exquisite exhibition space congregating some of the most interesting, innovative and cutting-edge design and object galleries around the world. I was very honored to participate as a panelist in a discussion about the current trends of the design market and also to see my book "Out There" in the beautiful bookstore of the fair. Below, in images, some of my highlights.
