Luisa in Manhattan for NYCXDESIGN

June 30, 2019

Our principal Luisa Manfredini was recently in New York City for NYCXDESIGN festival an annual architecture and design festival held every year in May. New York then becomes a mecca for architects, interior designers, furniture designers, and other allied industries to come together, meet, exchange ideas, view works buildings, showrooms and galleries.

Here is a taste of some of what Luisa saw and experienced.

DESIGN EVENTS

1st Dibs Gallery:

Shop the most beautiful things on earth

https://www.1stdibs.com/

The gallery is housed in an old brick warehouse in Hell’s Kitchen, New York. On arrival, the space is vast and exploring the Gallery seems like a never ending journey of discovering beautiful spaces and nooks, filled with beautiful things, in the most elegant combination. Everything from Antique to Modernist to Eclectic to Pop to Palm Springs and beyond was contained within those walls.

 

Pop Gallery opening

A small Gallery on Bowery Street was filled with fun, colourful and insightful art work. Whilst the subject of pop art is generally pop culture, this gallery also had environmental themes, such as a herd of elephants and African jungle, pop style.
