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.

Design, locally sourced since 2003

Special Features

  • #madeattheyard
  • Design at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is as expansive and expressive as the site itself, from ideas that materialize into objects for the home to architectural and engineering innovations that make the site an international model for adaptive reuse. #madeattheyard is a showcase designed by Bednark Studio and featuring over a dozen objects, goods, and products that represent the diversity of design at the Yard today.
  • THE STOOP
  • The stoop is an inseparable part of Brooklyn; not only a functional entryway to the borough’s brownstones but a critical piece of social furniture. Cooler Gallery is curating a group of artists and designers to pay tribute to the stoop. What is left on them, what lies near them, and who sits on them all weaves a narrative of these stoney steps. A true stoop will be built at the center of the show and each artist will create an intervention – be them sculpture or a functional object.
  • TAC Pop-Up Studio
  • The Textile Arts Center (TAC) presents a pop-up textile studio with live demos of weaving, painting with natural dyes and suminagashi throughout the weekend and a showcase of work in progress from their eight artists in residence: Noah Pica, Romina Chuls, Winnie van der Rijn, Familien Iglesias, Dance Doyle, Shihui Zhou, Erin Palumbo, and Tiantian Lou.
  • Imagination Playground
  • Imagination Playground is a breakthrough playspace concept conceived and designed by architect David Rockwell to encourage child-directed, unstructured free play. Comprised of an assortment of loose parts, including foam blocks in uniquely designed shapes, it empowers children to constantly reconfigure the space.
