Collecting modern and contemporary design has become one of the most dynamic, influential, and intriguing territories in the international marketplace. While initially fueled by the fine arts market, design has emerged as a discipline in its own right. The design market has become a global barometer of trend forecasting, creating and informing the language and taste of our time. Collecting design has become a source of trend forecasting, generating market reports, art fairs, museum exhibitions, research projects, scholarship, monographs, and endless headlines. The field inspires scholarly analysis, art fairs, museum exhibitions, and monographs, and was recently cited by the Wall Street Journal as a lucrative avenue of investment.

This unique program is presented in partnership with design historian Dr. Daniella Ohad, and seeks to bring together architects, interior designers, design lovers, and art collectors in a conversation about the field. This six-session series explorse several themes central to the collectible design world, with a strong focus on the history of modern and contemporary design. The program will feature in-person lectures and conversations with some of the world’s leading experts, in addition to two groups visits to the Park Avenue Armory and at Sotheby’s New York.
