marking its return to new york design week, wanteddesign again transforms ‘the tunnel’, bringing together some of the most innovative, international, up-and-coming and established manufacturers, designers, craftsmen, students and institutions. over 80 highly selected exhibitors – including 28 independent designers from around the world – are presenting prototypes in the new dedicated launch pad area, which situates a pop-up store, design school workshop, an interactive HP workshop, and even a diverse conversation series.


‘we envision new york city’s potential as a dynamic design exchange, multi- cultural, open to new ideas, experimentation and diversity. we hope that by offering a platform that reflects creativity in all of the americas, we will develop a design week that is unique to new york’s identity and attracts visitors from around the world,’ say founders odile hainaut and claire pijoulat.
