The third annual Model Citizens NYC, May 2011 is a 3 day exhibition, open to the public, featuring the work of 90+ designers of furniture, products, ceramics, glass, art objects and jewelry.

Part exhibit part trade show, Model Citizens NYC provides an opportunity for independent and emerging designers to have access to the ICFF and New York Design Week; the community of its peers, domestic and international buyers, manufacturers, potential clients, collaborators, and the public.

Our goal, one show at a time, is to foster a community and network that represents the many independent design voices who persevere remaining true to their individual curiosities, instincts, and design processes while providing them with accessibility to a broad audience in order to generate economic viability for their endeavors.


FEATURED EXHIBITION: How Its Made, and why its so F*#king expensive
