You can expect to see the stars of NYCxDESIGN–sinuous sofas, luminous lighting, fab furniture, terrific textiles, and amazing accessories–for the next several years in magazines, blogs and showrooms, but you’ll be seeing them here first. It’s not strictly for design geeks only, but if modern objects are your thing, get out your calendar and get ready for design heaven. ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) anchors an international celebration on a par with the Milan Furniture Fair and Stockholm Design Week, with hundreds of thousands of attendees and designers from across the globe converging on the city’s five boroughs from May 10–22; much of the mid-May action happens in Manhattan, but Brooklyn weighs in with a full calendar of collective events in hotspots like the Navy Yard and Industry City that serve as design hubs 365 days a year. Read on for a handful of highlights.

Oscar desk designed by Giorgio Bonaguro

Architects, get ready to swoon — an Italian designer has created a desk that’ll make working through the night feel downright fashionable.

Designed by Giorgio Bonaguro, the Oscar desk was first shown off during Milan Design Week 2014. It features a solid ash wood tabletop and soft leather pockets that hold drawings and notes, creating a sophisticated, yet functional look.
