Next up was New York for the USA’s leading design week.
Anchored by the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, the week has grown to encompass a range of satellite events including Wanted Design and Noho Design District and this year relaunched itself as NYCxDesign. Willy Wong, chief creative officer for the city's marketing and tourism agency, told us how the city is hoping the new festival will help boost its design sector.
New York designer Stephen Burks gave us a tour of the west side of town, where he lives and works, before taking us to see the High Line, a park on a disused section of elevated railway that has transformed the areas of the city that it runs through.
Finally, Design journalist Monica Khemsurov took us to all the key exhibitions around the Noho Design District.
