Starting this week many designers and brands are hosting exhibitions, talks and product reveals in their showrooms. This is a great opportunity to be immersed in their aesthetic!
Here are some of the events from the designers Twentieth represents.
As part of NYC x Design, Dutch design company Moooi will host a RSVP only preview of their 2016 carpet collection with a cocktail party and live performance by the Akie Bermiss Trio.
This event will take place at Moooi's New York showroom from 6-9pm on Thursday May 12th. Moooi's showroom will be open from Tuesday to Friday and hold special weekend hours, from 11am-6pm.
London designer Lee Broom crosses "the pond" to establish a month long pop up shop exhibition titled "Broom off Broome."
Broom's temporary shop will include 50 individual designs ranging in price from $110 up to nearly $40 thousand dollars. For the visit he has also created a special light which will only be available here.
See it at "Broom off Broome" at 63 Greene Street, adjacent to Broome Street from May 12th until it closes on June 10th.
New York based Furniture and Lighting Design studio Gabriel Scott will be adding a new series of chairs and bar-stools to their collection. Fashioned out of complimentary materials to their Dean and Prong line, the new series, Bardot, will use blackened steel, cooper and brass for the base hardware construction and utilize soft toned French-leather for the seat cushions.
Gabriel Scott will premier this collection, as well as an accompanying series of lights at 6pm on Thursday, May 12th at an RSVP only party held in their 372 Broome Street, New York City flagship store. Following this event, new items will be on display for the remainder of NYC x Design.
Roll and Hill
To coincide with NYC x Design, Roll & Hill will open their first showroom, a 4,000 square foot space located at 3 Mercer Street in Manhattan.
Roll and Hill will be launching several new products, including a line titled Esper that was developed by Visibility Design Studio. Roll and Hill will also launch table lamps to compliment several already existing lines. The Modo table lamp by Jason Miller Studio, pictured above, is but one example.
Roll and Hill's brand new 3 Mercer Street showroom will open Thursday May 14th.
We'll have more updates from the upcoming ICFF fair as the week progresses.
