Just Go: Design Week (Month?)

This weekend is the biggest confluence of events related to Design week. Design stores across the city are unveiling new collections or exhibiting, and this weekend there is a Design Week - themed street fair on Gansevoort Street. The most complete directory I have seen listing all of the different events and exhibits is here: http://www.core77.com/nydesignweek/. I'm going to try to catch the Uncomfortable Conversations exhibit on Saturday.

This weekend also begins the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, a design fair primarily aimed at the industry but welcomes the public on May 18 (Tuesday). Tickets are a whopping $50 but, given that it is the last day of the fair, perhaps a sample or two can be had for a good price (bring cash). Buy tickets at http://www.icff.com.
