June is around the corner and we are so excited for this summer season and all the design events that it is going to bring for us all! Many wonderful cities all over the world will come alive hosting events and fairs regarding all the design world and, as always, becoming the perfect hub to explore new trends, discover new products or brands and connect with the best the field can offer. Workshop, seminars, competitions: every activity a design aficionado or a professional can dream of will be under your grasp. And if they are to many (it’s even possible to have too many design events?) and you don’t really know how to navigate them, we are here to help you with our guide of JUNE 2019 BEST DESIGN EVENTS. Let’s begin!
JUNE 2019 BEST DESIGN EVENTS
Everything has been prepared in Van Nelle Factory, in the Netherlands, for the next fair: the best interior design trade event in the Netherlands! This 16th edition will see every professional assembling for the next trends in design with a special focus on furniture, lighting, sanitary, tiles, flooring, acoustic panels, fabrics and more. The specialty of Design District is that special stands have been given to over 200 brands so that new products and tendencies will be easily screened by the visitors. Our advice: start preparing yourself!
Jardins Jardins is the crossover event between gardens and interior design and this year theme has been chosen: “Vite, plus the jardins en ville”. Arrange your trip to the Jardin des Tuileries, for an event organized in partnership with the Louvre: with 30 installations, 100 expositions, 17 prototypes, and 8 design and architectural schools is going to be an interesting event for sure!
A key event since its launch in 1969, NeoCon represents the innovation hub for the commercial design industry: like every year, even this June will see The Mart becoming the central place in Chicago, where 500 leading companies and 50,000 industry experts will converge to get in touch with the innovative ideas that we will get to know in the future.
11 – 16 June
Renowned for being the global forum for design, every year top galleries from all over the world gather in Basel to display 20th and 21st century furniture, lighting and objets d’art exhibitions. Not only a marketplace for design pieces but also a venue in which modern and contemporary design reach their purpose. The 2019 edition’s highlight will be the Design at Large exhibition entitled “Elements: Earth” that “aims to explore the role of design, materials and making in a post-nature, Anthropocene future”.
LOS ANGELES DESIGN FESTIVAL

SAN FRANCISCO DESIGN WEEK
