This year, WantedDesign Manhattan and WantedDesign Brooklyn once again showed a selection of high-quality projects by designers and design students from around the world. Design students may have had the most speculative, thought-provoking projects at each show, but the professional work held its own, making use of unexpected shapes and modernizing traditional products (and even foods!) that haven’t been updated since their conception.

Venus Table by Concrete Cat at WantedDesign Manhattan
The surface of this Venus table is cast and cut from “Chaos stone,” which is a material born out of Concrete Cat’s experiment to use remnants from recycled home decor to create something new.

Mzamla by Maryam Turkey at WantedDesign Manhattan
Mazamla is a water cooler inspired by traditional Middle Eastern Terracotta water coolers. The fired clay naturally keeps the water cool, so no electricity is needed. The wall fixture serves as a shelving unit, a planter and water cooler all in one. Learn more about the project here.
