Fab’s second “Disrupt Design” competition will be held at the Jacob Javits Center during ICFF 2013.
Following the huge success of the new product call out in Milan, Fab is doing another round of crowd-sourcing new products, which they will put into production and sell to Fab’s 12 million members. Milan’s call out was so successful that Fab decided to put twelve new products into production (they originally anticipated having three winners).
Designers from around the world are invited to bring their product ideas, portfolios, and prototypes to the ICFF Theater at the ICFF at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center (11th Avenue at 38th Street) from 1 PM – 3 PM on Tuesday, May 21, 2013. A panel of experts will select the best products to put into production and sell on Fab.
The competition in New York will be judged by Bradford Shellhammer, Founder and Chief Design Officer, Fab; David Trubridge, Lighting Designer; Eames Demetrios, Director, Eames Office; Ben Watson, Executive Creative Director, Herman Miller; Harry Allen, Founder, Harry Allen Design; Lucy Swift Weber Youdovin, The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation; Dan Rubinstein, Editor in Chief, Surface; Jerry Helling, President, Bernhardt Design; Jill Singer, Co-Founder, Sight Unseen; Alan Heller, President and Founder, Heller Inc.
“We were so impressed with the designers we met in Milan that we decided we couldn’t wait to do the whole thing all over again,” commented Bradford Shellhammer, Fab’s Founder and Chief Design Officer. “At Fab, we are constantly reinventing ourselves and rethinking what Fab can be. By directly engaging with aspiring designers to find the best new work out there, we’re hoping to help even more of our members find things they love.”
