WantedDesign Manhattan 2020 (Cancelled)

The 10th edition of WantedDesign Manhattan will be held May 17-20 at the Javits Center. This year's theme, 'Unity Through Design,' emphasizes WantedDesign's dedication to promoting and celebrating all aspects of design, from all places, in all mediums, and at all professional stages.

Venezuelan-born, New York-based designer Rodolfo Agrella and his studio are designing the entire WantedDesign Manhattan spatial experience. In doing so, they have interpreted the theme of unity as an embrace of the engagement between technology and nature, present and future.

"I chose to reinforce the avant-garde spirit of the show," Agrella said. "I am using the platform as a portal for the future by transforming a traditional exhibition space into an oasis inside the Javits Center. (...) The notion of Conscious Design that WantedDesign has prioritized in previous years echoes throughout the 2020 fair, as well, with a continued focus on minimizing the footprint of exhibitions and activations - an ideal that is also extended to the designers and partners WantedDesign works with."
