With ICFF and Design Week currently raging in New York, there are a few ancillary showcases worth mentioning. One, the Valencian Design Showcase, celebrates contemporary design from Valencia. Particularly impressive are the outdoor furnishing and lighting pieces. In total, twelve brands (Almerich, Bonestil, Capdell, Fambuena, Gandia Blasco, KOO International, LZF, Naturtex, Point, UNO Design, DARC and Viccarbe) are represented.
Emphasis in placed on two things – first, the legacy of design in Valencia. Secondly, newer companies that have emerged in the last decade. The duality helps promote the wealth of innovation (and fabrics play a big roll here) from the Region.
The exhibition runs through May 28, 2010 and is aptly titled Valencian Design, Live it!
Check it out at the Domus Design Collection Building, 181 Madison Avenue, New York.
