About

BROOKLYN DESIGNS is Brooklyn’s premier design event showcasing a cross section of design, architecture and art. Founded by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce in 2003, it was one of the first design fairs to shine a spotlight on the creative economy in Brooklyn and serves as an incubator for emerging designers as well as a platform for established brands producing a range of creative products across furniture, lighting, tableware, art, textiles and jewelry.

Demonstrating the collaborative spirit of design, the show features inspiring collective exhibits, pop-up lounges, installations, hands-on demos and a diverse conference program in addition to an exciting array of products, including many that have received Brooklyn-Made certification by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. The show will also feature cafes and bars from Brooklyn’s beloved vendors as well as family-friendly programming throughout the weekend.

Attendees include: interior and product designers, architects, builders, developers, urban planners, educators, store buyers, industry influencers and design-savvy consumers.

They all come together to celebrate the borough’s rich design heritage, iconic style and bustling creative community. With thousands of visitors over the course of the three-day show, BROOKLYN DESIGNS is one of the most vibrant shows in New York City and of the anchor fairs of the citywide NYCxDESIGN initiative.

    Writing Exercises for Bottle in a Message
    When creating the book Bottle in a Message, artist Mariana Vidal Escabi used a process she calls “Writing Exercises” to find visual representations of smell. Fascinated by the phenomenon of Synesthesia (when the stimulation of one sensory pathway is perceived simultaneously through another sensory pathway), Vidal Escabi began by smelling several smell molecules and drawing on a long roll of paper what she perceived with no preconceived idea or order, creating a visual for each of the selected smell molecules. Instead of drawing what one sees, one draws what one smells. With this, a visual representation of the aromatic molecules’ olfactory perception is created, developing a new cross-sensory language that might be “read” and interpreted by both the eyes and the nose. We invite you to go through the same process and find your own cross-sensory visual language.
