NYCxDESIGN is proud to present IMPACTxDESIGN; A new design competition in partnership with Caesarstone to showcase how design can enhance public space and foster engagement. Selected in collaboration with the Design Trust for Public Space, Dumbo Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan, two historic neighborhoods and city-centers for the arts and commerce, have been identified as locations for design installations that will help bring people together and connect starting this fall.
Designers are invited to submit proposals that introduce new opportunities for public gathering with the use of Caesarstone material as the primary fabrication resource.
In May 2021, two designers will be announced and awarded $10,000 each. Each designer will work with NYCxDESIGN, Caesarstone, Design Trust for Public Space, Dumbo BID, and Downtown Alliance on a five-month project to bring the winning designs to life and unveil the installations in Fall 2021.
