The International Contemporary Furniture Fair hits New York next week. There are a number of excellent satellite shows and events (which we’ll be covering), including 400 Square Feet Later, CITE goes America.
Curators Alissia Melka-Teichroew and Jan Habraken have created a 400 square feet skeleton house that they filled with a selection of current work made by young, old, renowned and emerging American based designers and companies. The aim is to create a sense of the New American Home so visitors can experience strong and interesting contemporary design in the context of an occupied house. The exhibition features designers and companies from many different countries and backgrounds, all currently living and working in the United States of America. This reflects the dynamic melting pot culture that is uniquely and incomparably American.
400 Square Feet Later will be housed at the CITE showroom, 131 Greene St, New York, NY. Public opening is May 17, 2010, and the event will run through June 11, 2010.
