DESIGN FAIR 2012     

April 25-29, 2012    

 

                    

Design Fair 2012 features vintage modern objects of the 20th century as well as examples of cutting-edge contemporary design. A wide selection of carefully curated items will be available for purchase as part of the Design Fair, including furniture, glass, ceramics, lighting, books, metalwork and fashion. Visitors to the Fair will be able to meet the designers and exhibitors for an up-close and personal look at the pace-setting designs of today and the mid-20th century.

 

The Texas Co-Op, a special section of the Fair, features individual Texas-based designers. 2012 Curator Garrett Hunter invited individual designers to offer specific products. These new and emerging product lines currently are in small-scale production and represent innovations in industrial and object design today.
