In Jerusalem, a Matchmaker Pairs Mature Artisans with Young Designers

                                <em>We visited Jerusalem Design Week where Daniel Nahmias exhibited &#8220;Matchmaker,&#8221; a collection to promote traditional craftsmanship in Jerusalem by coming up with new collaborations between older artisans and young designers.</em>
                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/jerusalem-matchmaker-scouts-for-artisans-young-designers/or-kaplan-6305_preview/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/07/or-kaplan-6305_preview-810x540.jpeg" alt="In Jerusalem, a Matchmaker Pairs Mature Artisans with Young Designers" /></a>
                                “I love walking around this place. There’s all sorts of people with crazy talent. You never know who you will meet,” Daniel Nahmias says as we follow him through the Old City of Jerusalem in the midday heat. It is our first day in Israel, and even though some of us have begun to tire with the weather, Nahmias has a sprightly spirit that makes us pick up our pace. It’s the same spirit we will later come to associate with his work. He leads us with childlike excitement through the alleyways and stone streets, through one turn and then another, through quarters unexplored by even the Jerusalemites themselves.

At Romanian Design Week: An Intimate Creative Economy

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/romanian-design-week-intimate-creative-economy/fashion-exhibition-romanian-2/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/Fashion-exhibition-Romanian-1-810x540.png" alt="At Romanian Design Week: An Intimate Creative Economy" /></a>
                                This month, The Institute in Romania presented its 6th edition of <a href="http://www.institute.ro/romanian-design-week" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Romanian Design Week</a> in the capital of Bucharest. Romania may not be a staple destination in the European design circuit; a communist country until the 1989 Romanian Revolution, it is more known for associations with Dracula, stuffed cabbage leaves and traditional peasant huts in the countryside. Now, Romania’s design aesthetic is in a state of free, thoughtful reinvention. This year’s presentation showed a strong contingent of young designers, many of whom have returned from working abroad, and are bent on merging traditional Romanian style with their international influences.
Romanian Design Week attracts 30,000 visitors each year, and to their credit, they have done this with no government backing. Instead, the festival is put together by The Institute, an organization providing an “ecosystem for creative industries in Romania.” Maria Neneciu, a program manager at The Institute, says the design

Once again, we explored WantedDesign in Manhattan, which is always a favorite of ours as it’s the place to see the latest from both up-and-coming and established designers. From one end of the Terminal Stores to the other, we scoped out some favorites we wanted to share. Start with our video, which includes Bento Box, Home Studios, Yuko Nishikawa, Medellin Design Week, and Istanbul Design Collective, and then onto some additional highlights. Visual Magnetics partnered with artist/designer Camille Walala on this interactive mural encouraging visitors to jump in and ‘play more’. The Zero Waste Bistro, designed by Linda Bergroth, offered up a tasting menu to delight the senses within an environment made from all recycled materials. Trufquen combines traditional terra cotta pottery with mouth blown glass escaping from its crevices. These objects are designed by Emma GvL Boomkamp and are created when oil is thrown into the kiln

Best of ICFF 2018: Favorites from Skram, Bernhardt Design, RISD Students, and More

                                The end of May means the end of ICFF 2018, the yearly exhibition in NYC that fills the Javits Center with row after row of contemporary furnishings. We scoped the aisles in search of some new products and designs and we finally narrowed it down to a manageable number to present as our favorites from this massive show. Take a look.

We loved Skram’s Arak Wall Sconce, which is part of an ongoing collaboration with porcelain artist Mimi Logothetis. AlexAllen Studio presented the Chord Cluster chandelier which features semi-circular lit shapes that resemble the swags you find on crystal chandeliers. These droplet lights by Atelier Alain Ellouz appear lightweight and delicate despite being made out of alabaster. Actor and all-around talent, Terry Crews, is back with another fantastic collection

The show takes place from June 11-13, 2018 at The Mart in Chicago and will be spread out over five floors. Here&#8217;s what you can expect + get excited for:
Since its launch in 1969, NeoCon has had a colorful and exciting history, including a terrible fire that destroyed the original site of the first ever NeoCon. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the show launched the NeoCon blog to rediscover the “people, products and parties that made up the first 49 years of NeoCon.”

This year, some of the leading names in design and beyond will be speaking in four marquee presentations (which are free to register), including: Art

Designing an Experience: Behind the Scenes at MIDO 2018

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/designing-an-experience-behind-the-scenes-at-mido-2018/mido-2018-4/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/MIDO-2018-4-810x540.jpg" alt="Designing an Experience: Behind the Scenes at MIDO 2018" /></a>
                                The internet has undoubtedly made the world a smaller place, erasing distances, and assisting collaborative efforts between parties across the globe. Even so, industries with international reach like design, fashion, and technology still rely upon trade shows to allow designers, manufacturers, buyers, and even occasionally the public to congregate under one roof for valuable hands-on, in-person interactions to learn what&#8217;s on the horizon.
After attending MIDO – the world’s largest international eyewear show hosted each year in Milan, Italy – for three years in a row, we recognized an ideal opportunity to investigate the behind-the-scenes logistics, planning, and design of a trade show attended by over 1,300 exhibitors and 58,000 attendees from around the world. Though much is reported about what is on display at trade shows, rarely are the details of trade shows themselves revealed. We spoke with both Giovanni Vitaloni, the newly appointed President of MIDO, and Francesco Pagliariccio,

And while you may just think of beige and white tiles that fill your showers, bathroom floors, and backsplashes, there&#8217;s an entire world out there of tiles in a million colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes that could easily blow your mind as well as your budget if you&#8217;re not careful. It&#8217;s impossible to share everything but we managed to narrow it down to 10 modern tile options from Coverings 2018 for you to check out.

                                NYCxDesign is big. It&#8217;s growing. It&#8217;s a beast to cover with so much to do, lots to see all over the city.
We’re overwhelmed even with a team of people! So that’s why we wanted to create a handy printed map and guide for you, whether you’re a seasoned visitor, a first-timer, or somewhere in between. This curated guide to New York City’s annual celebration of design was created by our editors, who did the difficult job of hand-picking the best stuff to see and do, even creating a perfect 2-day itinerary if that’s all you’ve got. We’re dropping these all over New York City and Brooklyn over the next few weeks, so you will likely find one in a local NYC/Brooklyn design showroom, event, exhibition or hotel, but if you want a head start, you can download and print a compact copy for yourself right here.
