Collective II – The Nordic Influence

May_CollectiveDesignFair2

Collective is a new design fair in New York City that presents a selection of the best in contemporary and 20th-century design from an international range of emerging and established galleries. This year’s fair has a special focus on Scandinavian design, with a curated selection of design from Scandinavian exhibitors and a seminar on Nordic influence.

For Collective Focus: Scandinavia, guest curator Glenn Adamson, Director of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York City, will select work from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden on view among our exhibitors. His spotlighting of thematic connections and points of difference between the selected pieces will encourage visitors to think about this influential design region in new ways.

The seminar Nordic Influence: Designers Discuss the Scandinavian Legacy will be held on Saturday, May 10, as part of the Collective Conversations series. The featured participants are Glenn Adamson, Director of Museum of Arts and Design; Wendell Castle, designer; Cathrine Raben Davidsen, artist, and Joseph Walsh, designer.
