What is National Design Week?
Now celebrating its tenth year, National Design Week leads up to the National Design Awards, which “honor lasting achievement in American design.” And who better to honor designers than Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, whose permanent collection spans “thirty centuries of historic and contemporary design, including the world’s coolest office, a large snail shell, snakes, a dragon and four bearded men, a cone propped up on a bench, a pair of colorful hands, a mysterious tv, and a perpetual calendar.”
Design Across America
While the main National Design Week events (all of which are free, with the exception of Thursday’s Awards Gala Benefit) take place at the museum’s location on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, there are celebrations happening all over the US as part of Design Across America.
