With a rich history and an incredible track record of success, the WantedDesign's Design School Workshop launched at the start of this year's New York Design Week, NYCxDesign, mixing and mashing students and mentors from all over the world to share, to collaborate, and to learn.

For this year's NYCxDesign, frog partnered with Art Start for the second year in a row to help bring creativity to NYC's homeless and at-risk youth through their DECKxDESIGN challenge.

During NYCxDesign, we were lucky enough to snag a seat at Helsinki-based Restaurant Nolla's Zero Waste Bistro pop-up located in the halls of WantedDesign Manhattan.

I was surprised to hear who was collaborating with the furniture company Bernhardt Design this year for their ICFF booth display, which is also perhaps precisely what intrigued me about it.

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
Set up as a gallery exhibition on the ground floor of 100 Avenue of the Americas in SoHo, Sight Unseen Offsite showcased some of the most innovative designers working today. Unlike other design week shows, the editors of Sight Unseen almost dictatorially command who gets to participate or not —
