In 2015, Dwell returns to New York City with the second-annual Dwell on Design, a coast-to-coast festival of modern design.

New York City is a design laboratory—one that constantly reinvents its landscape while embracing new ideas and possibilities. Dwell on Design NY (DODNY) shares that ethos as it upends the standard “design show” format by constructing a forum for unique ideas and a fresh point of view. Dwell on Design NY will dive deep with commercial designers, architects, manufacturers, makers, and you. Together, we’ll evaluate design, solve problems, and innovate through research, technology, and ingenuity.

At the core of this discourse is the concept of authentic design and its far-reaching position in the modern furniture milieu. Additionally, Dwell editors will converse with the world’s top architects and designers on hot-button issues in the areas of resiliency, conservancy, and technology.

Join the candid conversation and lively debate on the future of design, with large-scale installations created by renowned brands that are not only relevant, but also influential.
