Collective Design, a New York fair that offers a curated selection of 20th-century and contemporary design, announced that the third edition of the fair next spring (May 13–17) will take place in a new location, Skylight Clarkson Sq. a 60,000-square foot space in Soho that fair founder and creative director Steven Learner will transform to showcase the works on display.

Among new exhibitors planned for next spring are DE VERA, from New York and Dimore gallery from Milan. Returning New York galleries include Patrick Parrish and Kinder Modern. Other exhibitors announced today include Etage Projects (Copenhagen), Galerie Gosserez (Paris) and Glass Past (New York). The complete list will be announced early next year.

Fair organizers announced that the Collective Focus program, which next year will spotlight innovation across Italian design, will be curated by W editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi. He will work with Collective Design galleries to create a thematic program throughout the fair that explores the lasting impact and significance Italian design has had on the field. Tonchi said his collaboration “allows for a far-ranging exploration of the strength, beauty, and extraordinary impact of Italian design on practitioners across the world.”

Learner said the fair continues “to bring new galleries and exciting new material directly to professionals, collectors, and enthusiasts across the spectrum of design. Our vision is to inspire a dedicated interest in experiencing, connecting with, and collecting extraordinary works of design.”
