In a match-off between animated old-school furniture and tech-heavy decor, the latter is winning in this fourth edition of Collective Design. Neon lights, LED panels, and funky furniture rule.

At Tuesday’s VIP preview, installations by Tokyo-based design firm nendo were the first items to greet guests. Just beyond, different wings contained different wonderlands partitioned to offer their own visual delights.

The show more or less delivers on its promise to spotlight “emerging concepts, material evolution, and international design trends,” as the fair’s director Steven Learner said in a statement.

To give you an inside look, artnet News rounded up just a few of the most striking objects—and fairgoers—on display below.
