The Collective Design Fair 2017 is an opportunity to explore the significance of design and art across creative disciplines and everyday life.
The Collective Design Fair 2017 has taken a place in New York. For its fifth edition, the Collective Fair brought together a curated selection of design-focused galleries from around the world. Their booths are mixed with site-specific installations by local designers and museums.

The Collective Design Fair 2017 presents an exciting program of special installations, curator-led tours, and Collective Conversations featuring artists, gallerists, educators and cultural innovators exploring vital topics in the field of culture. We selected for you three of the best 2017 showcases:
In October 2014, Interior Designer Brad Ford set up a modern makers craft fair in upstate New York called Field + Supply. The focus was on modern, elevated craftsmanship showcasing artisans from the Hudson Valley area as well as makers who work in New York City and Brooklyn. FAIR is an extension of that concept and is now a permanent showroom at the New York Design Center. It is more edited and elevated than the original event, but the focus remains on high-end, handcrafted design and craft.
