The Design Milk team spent a lot of time on the road in 2018 scouring the globe looking for the best modern design on display at various events, exhibitions, and shows. Since not everyone is able to attend these events and others might have missed some of our coverage, we rounded up all of the design shows we attended so you can see them all in one place. Take a look.

We came back to <a href="http://www.icff.com/" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">ICFF</a> for the third year in a row to bring our <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/the-milk-stand/" data-wpel-link="internal">Milk Stand pop-up shop</a> and it was definitely the place to be at the fair this year! With a new curated group of 12 designers and makers, our corner of the fair was filled with attendees shopping from new collections of jewelry, ceramics, chalk drawers, leather goods, stationery, and more.
A huge thank you to Amigo Modern who designed our booth, Moo for our fabulous postcards, Mixbook for our signage, and Kelly Beall who designed the booth graphics and helped create our first ever Design Milk merchandise, including this tote that completely speaks to us. 😉 FYI, they’ll be available to purchase online soon.

To mark their first solo show in New York City, New Zealand design brand <a href="https://resident.co.nz/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Resident</a> created a 3,000-square-foot installation to launch their latest collection of furniture and lighting. ‘<a href="https://resident.co.nz/news/2018/05/resident-invites-you-to-travelling-without-bags-ne" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Travelling Without Bags</a>‘ was curated by New Zealand interior architect Rufus Knight as a series of beautiful spaces in NYC’s Nolita neighborhood.

One of the most exciting pieces of news from this year’s <a href="https://www.nycxdesign.com/" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">NYCxDESIGN</a> week made Greene Street extra trafficky as New York’s design lovers flocked to <a href="https://www.tomdixon.net/storelocator/showroom/tom-dixon-shop-new-york" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">Tom Dixon’s new NYC flagship showroom</a> in the <a href="https://sohodesigndistrict.org/" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">Soho Design District</a>.
Spread out across 6,700 and two separate floors, the showroom operates as a storefront for Tom Dixon’s growing catalogue of lighting, furniture, home decor and accessories but Dixon has bigger plans for it. The space will also act as multi-disciplinary platforms for innovation in design. That means you can expect unique events like the Flash Factory pop-up (where visitors can take home their own limited edition Etch Light after learning how exactly Tom Dixon manufactures each one), speaking engagements on the topic of current + emerging trends in design, or, like last week, an intriguing black banquet serving black bread and black meringue to celebrate the unveiling of the Black Collection.
