Made in NYC, a network of 1,300 NYC-based manufacturers, and WantedDesign present a rare and intimate onsite showcase of three factories located in the historic maritime neighborhood of Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Join us to delve into design’s hidden “back-end,” the ecosystem of machinery, systems, processes, workers, and workflows that realize the finished products of design we gather to celebrate each design week.
This tour will highlight the best design-based manufacturers Brooklyn has to offer, including: Urban Green Furniture, a maker of sustainable and organic home goods of locally-sourced materials; Design Compendium, an innovative multidisciplinary design-build firm; and Omar Muniz Cabinetry, markers of handcrafted custom cabinetry of exceptional quality.
All three factories will be visited on the tour. Spots on the tour are limited, and we encourage you to RSVP early to guarantee your place.
