Design Pairings: Collective 2 Design Fair


New York architect Steven Learner founder of the newest New York design show the Collective 2 Design Fair has made his mark and is getting ready for his next show. After the inaugural show last May, Steven has chosen Skylight Moyinhan Station for the next fair scheduled for May 8-11, 2014. Merging new artist and designers with the 20th Century designs, the Collective 2 is a welcome addition to the New York fair calendar.

Steven Learner chose Moynihan Station for its industrial contrast, great lighting and fantastic location. The proximity of this new location is a transportation hub, a place to discover and connect with design in New York City. A must see experience for the locals and visitors. The Skylight Moynihan Station is located in the historic James A. Farley Post Office on West 33rd Street in Manhattan.

Engaging visitors with tours, lectures and connecting with cultural partners such as the Smithsonian, Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum. The fair will give the community the opportunity to interact with design in an atmosphere the emphasizes designing space and creating structure within ones own unique environment.

Travels and architecture are Steven's main inspiration, during the planning stages, he draws from both. Mixing the contemporary with historical elements creating a new modern space. As a collective, the group shapes the show by bringing together a diverse selection of international galleries featured side by side with the local New York galleries making a synergy that is very New York.

Galleries such as R & Company Mondo Cane, Volume Gallery, Todd Merrill, Christina Grajales Gallery and many more. International galleries include Southern Guild from Johannesburg, Modernity from Sweden and Jousse from France.

Steven Learner sees the continuation of design trends that include hand crafted materials along with 3d printing designs. Young talent is developing designs in 3d then completing and finishing by hand as a popular movement.

Collective 2 Design Fair expands your point of view to the next level. Perfect for the new comer and the seasoned collector.
