Next Up? New York Design ’09

What’s next for ABE NYC, INC.? New York Design ’09. For the past seven years, I have been producing off-site events during ICFF throughout NYC. It started after I was sent to Milan to cover the Salone, the world’s largest design event attended by over 200,000 people! So I came back to New York City as noticed how lame and uncool our design events really were and started doing these indie-off site events. Well, now it has grown into a much bigger groove and I’ve been working with the Meatpacking District Initiative where Annie Washburn (the E.D.) and I take over the neighborhood and feature great exhibitions, panel discussion and cocktail parties. To get an evite to MPD DESIGN 09, click here.

This year, the theme is ARCHITECTURE. Since this economy is not bringing out the shoppers, we’ve decided to feature the foundation of great design, which it what houses it. It’s a conversation about the importance of architecture, the direction it is taking and it’s future.

Since the Meatpacking District is in the wind storm of visual change, it was clear that the focus should be on Architecture. Many of the stores and restaurants get involved throughout the weekend (May 15-17), so come by and see for yourself what we’ve hooked up. Peace, love, and Woodstock. xoxoxo ABE
