New York, NY- Catherine Malandrino’s Meatpacking District boutique will be home to “Conversation Intime”, a mix of contemporary furniture including two SEZZ lamps and a Southbeach chair by Christophe Pillet inspired by his quote, “I am for a design language that makes sense and fits with the objects that surround us.”  

 

From May 14 – 17th the Meatpacking District will be a hub of activity to more than 10,000 design aficionados visiting the neighborhood. Over four days guests will attend more than 25 free industry events hosted throughout the neighborhood.

Now in its 4th year, Meatpacking District Design ’09 has the added element of the newly opened Standard Hotel acting as headquarters.

 

Each May, New York City becomes an exciting design destination, which Mayor Bloomberg officially declared “New York Design Week”. After the shows in Milan, thousands of design leaders, retailers, international press and consumers converge here to discover the new trends and great products while generating millions of dollars in revenue for the city’s retail establishments.

 

The Meatpacking District Initiative (MPDI) hosts high-profile events during New York Design Week designed to drive traffic to the neighborhood.  As a vibrant design and shopping destination the Meatpacking District welcomes thousands of industry influencers and enthusiasts who attend New York Design Week.
