Design weeks are periods of time (usually a week, but sometimes even a month) in a certain location , in which there’s a celebration for design.

During the design weeks, there are usually many design related events happening, such as exhibitions, seminars and meetings, therefore for us, design lovers, it is the perfect time to visit that destination, as we can always find amazing places to visit, parties to attend and get to know amazing and inspiring people, who are as passionate for design as we are.

We can see design weeks as a festivity for design, with design lovers getting together to celebrate design and share views, creations and opinions, during the many design events that occur during that time.

Nowadays, there are hundreds of design weeks all over the world, from the most famous to the most underground, some more related with a specific design subject, others celebrating design as a whole, but all of them have one thing in common: the passion for design – and that is enough to make it worth the visit, isn’t it?

Besides the events, which by itself are a pretty good reason to visit NYCxDESIGN, in there you can also the NYCxDESIGN Awards, a competition that outstands the best that has been done in the design field.

“Interior Design magazine and ICFF present the first annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, a global design competition celebrating outstanding achievement across major areas of design—from architecture to interiors, from products to collectibles, from craft to technology. This open and inclusive awards program will serve as a connector pulling together and rewarding excellence in design achievement from the over 500 events that comprise New York City’s showcase of global design.

Product and project submissions are open to all fairs, exhibitors, and design firms until April 13th. Product entrants will be judged by a panel of design luminaries and projects by Cindy Allen, Interior Design’s Editor in Chief, and Interior Design editors. Honorees will be announced at the NYCxDESIGN opening night event at Industry City on May 7. Winners will be announced on May 14 prior to ICFF’s Opening Night Party at the MoMA.”

Are you visiting NYCxDESIGN this year? If you are, which events do you plan to attend?

Next week we can attend Prague Design Week, which will happen for the third consecutive year. It will be held between 2-8 May 2016 in Kafka’s house in Prague. The overseers have selected 93 exhibitors who will show their new products and ideas and even reveal the process of creating their design pieces.


“Prague Design Week – designers exhibition continues the tradition in many developed countries of regularly organizing an exhibition of not only contemporary design in their capital cities. Out of the need to present, to those who care for design, creativity, new ideas, skills, technology and hence even the products of Czech and foreign designers, craftsmen and producers, we annually showcase this event in a different concept than the one you may be used to in the Czech Republic. Prague Design Week focuses on telling stories about design and wants to show the final product as a process from the initial idea through sketches and prototypes to the finished product.” – Ondřej Krynek (Founder & Organizer)

Constantly growing, Prague Design Week 2016 gathers 93 exhibitors, in one place, during 7 days. There you can find all kind of designers, including fashion designers, creative, directors, jewelers, among others.

Náměstí Franze Kafky 3, Kafka’s House, Prague 1st (near Old Town Square), is the place where this amazing reunion of creativity will be located.

The creative exhibitors that you have to know in the Prague Design Week are:

Minsk Design Week 2016 is happening right now (from 23rd April to 29th April, to be exact), and during the show there are exhibitions of many different design talents’ work, mostly from Belarus, and also design events. Have a look at their website for more information:


With exhibitors in a wide variety of subjects, such as furniture, lighting, equipment, interior, benches, seats, hammocks, birdhouses, interactive installations and installations of water, along with interesting conferences and workshops occuring,  it is clear that Minsk Design Week is growing and showcasing an interesting line up for design lovers.


There were many exhibitors that caught our eye for the most varied reasons, one of those were Field Collective. Their creations are so simple and fun, irreverent and unique – which is always something we look up to. In fact, they describe their work as “Design and interior jewelery toys”, and this description seems pretty accurate to us! They create the most minimalist and simple pieces, but manage to make those in such a way that those come out so much fun.

Field Collective was created in early 2015 by a group of artists/sculptors from Minsk, named Sergey Arischenko and Alyona Lipinskaya.


Their creations vary from small architecture forms to accessories, all with a fun twist and using modern production methods. Their approach is minimalistic and the collection tones fall mostly in wood, white, black and red.

The duo also gets much of their inspiration from animals, as a big part of the collection uses their forms to create the fun sculptures the collective sells.


Their stand at Minsk Design Week 2016 has a minimalistic design, as you’d expect from them and showcases many fun elements. You can find out more about their work at their instagram or vk page.

In case you are around Minsk until tomorrow, be sure to stop by Minsk Design Week to get to know the work of Field Collective and many other interesting new talents, mostly from Belarus.


As we already told you in our article about the top 40 home design events in the world, in High Point Market there are Style Spotters. Those carefully selected trend makers are handpicked due to their sense of style and visit the fair with the only purpose of finding and sharing with us their top findings when it comes to stylish and trendy interior design products.

This year, the selected Style Spotters for High Point Market Spring were Malene Barnett (award winning carpet designer at Malene B), Laura Bielecki (interior designer and blogger at Luxury Interiors Blog), Marie Flanigan (interior designer at Marie Flanigan Interiors), Brynn Olson (interior designer at Brynn Olson Design Group), Anne Sage (blogger at Anne Sage Blog and author of the book Sage Living), Laura Umansky (award winning interior designer at Laura U Interior Design), Erika Hollinshead Ward (interior designer and blogger at BluLabel Bungalow), Scot Meacham Wood (interior designer at Scot Meacham Wood Design) and Michelle Jennings Wiebe (Style Spotter Emeritus, blogger and award winning interior designer at Studio M) . With such an inspired selection of professionals, we could predict their finding would be equally inspiring for us!

High Point Market Spring 2016 was held last week (April 16th to April 20th) in North Carolina, and during the event we kept receiving updated directly from brand’s and the Style Spotters own social accounts about the top products they found. Among those, we selected our favourites from each one of the Style Spotters.

Barcelona Armoire by Bernhardt Furniture
