Inaugural NYC design fair to debut in May

Posted on Wednesday, February 13, 2013.

“As an architect and collector, I’ve visited the greatest design fairs in the world and realized that we need an event of this caliber in New York,” said Collective Design Fair founder and creative director Steven Learner. “The name Collective tells the story: a passionate group of architects and designers, patrons and gallerists, uniting to create an international platform for the very best of vintage and contemporary design.”
Collective .1, the first edition, will take place May 8-11, coinciding with the second edition of Frieze New York and the New York auction houses’ May sales.

According to Learner, as interest and the connoisseurship associated with collecting design continue to grow, the demand for related events has culminated in fairs around the globe.
The fair will host over 25 international galleries as well as curated exhibitions, institutional displays and special programming to present a timely perspective on the global design world. It will offer a broad view that ranges from rare vintage works to the most innovative contemporary material being produced today.

Premiering at Pier 57, on the West Side Highway at 15th Street, the show kicks off with a preview VIP cocktail reception on Tuesday, May 7.
Further information on exhibitors, institutional partners, and additional programs will be announced later this month.
