New York in codes: ICFF & ddc
From 15 to 18 May, the ICFF invites you to the imposing glass structure that is the Javits Convention Center. The fair, which as New York's single biggest design event still has lots of potential yet to be harnessed, just gets better and better over the years - more and more exciting material manufacturers have been carefully selected to take part in the exclusive fair.
As in other cities, New York's galleries and showrooms use the occasion of the ICFF to invite trade visitors to their shows. As media partner of ddc, we would like to draw your attention to two particular events: the opening of a second, completely new dcc flagship premises, designed by Studio Gaia with a Minotti showroom by Rodolfo Dordoni. Located at 136 Madison Avenue, the opening party is on Friday 14 May, from 18.00 to 21.00. The new 30,000-square-metre showroom, featuring an installation by Jens Ahlemeyer, serves as an exhibition space for ddc's own, self-curated furniture collection.
The existing premises at 181 Madison Avenue/34th Street - the ddc Studio - has been refitted as a 'shop within a shop' showroom. During the ICFF, a number of presentations by different international designers from Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and Canada will take place here, in addition to an installation by the Velencia Group. ddc invites you to a cocktail party on Monday 17 May from 18.00 to 21.00 to mark the occasion.
