NYCxDesign, New York City's citywide design week, just wrapped up and it reinforced one well-established truism: this is a city that lives for cutting edge design.

Centered around the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and surrounded by smaller design events Wanted Design and Sight Unseen, NYCxDesign is a loose blanket that covers 12 days of breakout events, talks, exhibitions and parties across the city.
Of particular interest to us was an LED light installation by Blackbody at the entrance tunnel of Wanted Design:

Also on view at Wanted were innovative bathroom lighting ideas by Axor:

The 2014 installment of NYCxDesign certainly confirmed that contemporary lighting and design is as bold and brash as ever. Stark geometries are all the rage, handcrafted furniture is trending, and designers are doing amazing things with modern mini pendant lights.
And while much of what was on view throughout NYCxDesign was in the conceptual and cost-prohibitive phase, it doesn't stop us from highlighting some like-minded pendants that are readily available today:
Caycee Red 14-Inch-Wide Modern Pendant, Possini Euro Double Glass Swag Chandelier, Gray Knife Pleat Shade Chandelier
By simply mixing, matching and clustering pendants like these, you can make them look as contemporary and high-concept as you want at home.

Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
