Another year, another CES for the books. During our time in Las Vegas for the biggest technology trade show of the year, there were laughs, there were naps, but most importantly there were thousands of LED screens to stare at. We went through five days of utter sensory overload so
G18, stands for the 18th edition of the graduation show, one of the main presentations during the yearly Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. The 208 projects from 185 graduates – and over 11 miles of power cable to get everything wired – demonstrate the scale of this year's presentation by

Large-scale robots by Jelle de GraafThe Robot Love exhibition was one of this year's visitor magnets at Dutch Design Week, located at a historical factory for dairy production (Campina).

Many of the projects on display at Ventura Futures weren't completed yet, so it's
This year, WantedDesign Manhattan and WantedDesign Brooklyn once again showed a selection of high-quality projects by designers and design students from around the world.

Sight Unseen Offsite's main location at 201 Mulberry may have downsized compared to last year, but the quality of works shown at the crowd favorite show remained high. This year's show was heavily focused on unexpected collaborations, including the mini show-within-a-show Field Studies, which paired celebrities with designers to create
This year's Salone Satellite showcased a wide variety of projects, many of which extended beyond traditional furniture design. Throughout Milan Design Week in general, we noticed three material trends—inflatables, foam and ratchet straps—all of which be seen scattered throughout this Satellite recap. Our favorite projects from the extensive exhibition within
Many people we spoke with during this year's edition of Salone del Mobile in Milan said this year was the busiest yet, and they may be right. With new locations popping up, Villas opening their doors to the public for the very first time and mega-exhibitions held in honor of
We're two days into Milan Design week, and although we haven't hit the big shows yet, we've discovered plenty of smaller wonders within or near La Brera and Ventura Centrale, ranging from wooden marionettes made from chairs to electric vehicle sketches:
COS has returned to Milan Design Week for a seventh consecutive collaborative installation. Last year, the London-based fashion brand collaborated with Studio Swine to create a multi-sensory experience including a fountain of air-bubbles. This time around, the collaborator is Palm Springs-based designer Phillip K. Smith III , and for the
When performing personal necessity-driven tasks like sleeping, eating and sitting, we often neglect to consider what the furniture we use during our most personal activities says about ourselves. The objects we choose to surround ourselves with speak miles about who we are as individuals, but that's easy to forget when
Access+Ability is an exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum on view now through Sept. 3, 2018.

At this point, it's no secret we're killing our planet at a frighteningly rapid pace. With plastic and other toxic materials polluting our oceans and infiltrating our air supply, it's more important now than ever for designers and scientists to develop scalable solutions to help reverse the bad habits we've
Who would've thought? One of the highlights of this year's Dutch Design Week took place in a parking garage. Not an abandoned or converted one, but a busy underground garage in the center of Eindhoven. It was the perfect venue for Hardcore, a group exhibition with the theme of
Is Fashion Modern?, a new exhibit organized by design curators Paola Antonelli and Michelle Fisher at MoMA, is as much a celebration of fashion and design as it is an extensive history lesson. Leaving no rock unturned, the curators take a look at many of the everyday fashion items that
Last Friday, September 22, UK Prime Minister Theresa May described the June 2016 "Brexit" referendum as an opportunity for “imaginative and creative” solutions for the European Union. In the context of London Design Festival, the euphemism is equally coincidental and ironic. Central Saint Martins, for one, explicitly addressed Brexit—and subsequent
As with any design week, the tentpole tradeshows and group exhibitions of London Design Festival can be a mixed bag of brands, manufacturers, collectives, independent designers, and sponsored pavilions. While the disparate exhibitors cater to different albeit overlapping audiences, the jarring juxtapositions can be chaotic if not altogether unfortunate. Thankfully,
Perennially in sync with the autumnal equinox, London Design Festival is duly billed as the biggest design week this side of Milan. And just as the changing leaves offer a flourish of color, so too did many of projects on view in East London—especially large-scale installations by Camille Walala and
The London Design Festival kicks off this weekend, bringing hundreds of design events to the city of London with it. The difficulty of narrowing down your schedule goes without saying, especially when each exhibition has so much to offer. That's where we're here to help—we've created this insider's guide full
In every History of Industrial Design class, you look at slide after slide of the hits, the successes, the breakthroughs. But couldn't we also learn something about successful design by studying the failures? Dr. Samuel West believes so. As Director of the Museum of Failures in Helsingborg, Sweden, West presides
The Climactic: Post-Normal Design exhibition at Carnegie Mellon marks an important step forward for discursive design. The curatorial team created the most intentionally global representation of discursive work to date, and deliberately challenge the glaring under-representation of non-western design voices.
On an all-inclusive note that considers makers from all of New York City's boroughs, WantedDesign continues to give design lovers not one, but two locales and experiences to visit during the NYCxDesign festivities. Each event in turn brings its own special flavor to the fair and exhibition mix. One
Taking up more than 165,000 square feet in the gargantuan Javits Center, ICFF is likely home to any type of design style and designer you're looking for—lavish, minimal, handmade or downright dramatic, there's a little something for everyone in the sprawling space. This year felt particularly broad, as it welcomed
Tucked away in Soho was one of our favorite exhibits on display during NYCxDesign: The Strong collection. On display at Vitsœ's NYC location, the exhibit featured around 75 items from Tom Strong's 250+ item collection of Dieter Rams-designed Braun products. Strong's diverse collection ranged from tabletop cigarette lighters to electric
You might know that in the 1940s there were plans to build an airport right over Manhattan. But did you know that Buckminster Fuller wanted to build a climate-controlled dome over midtown in the 1960s? Or that in the 1880s, a pneumatic overhead railway was proposed for commuters? Or that
