Brooklyn Designs is a survey of the contemporary design scene in Brooklyn. Founded by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce in 2003, it was one of the first design fairs to shine a spotlight on the borough's creative economy and continues to serve as an incubator for emerging designers and a platform for established brands, producing a range of creative products and services across furniture, lighting, accessories and technology.
 
The 2018 edition will move to a new home at the Brooklyn Museum at 200 Eastern Parkway, kicking off the first weekend of NYCxDESIGN from May 11-13. The juried exhibition will feature 50+ brands including beloved design studios Fort Makers and Token; conscientious textile designers Quiet Town and Five and Six Textiles; newcomers Ama Connection and Zeray Studio; and hi-tech brands Fitchwork and Brooklyn SolarWorks.

The show will also present special installations from Pratt Institute and the Textile Arts Center, a shoppable marketplace, and talks with prominent figures in the design world including a keynote address by renowned architect Jonathan Marvel.
