The Next Wave: Industrial Design Innovation in the 21st Century

Free public opening reception: Thu Feb 21 / 7-10pm

What makes an object useful, engaging and beautiful? What is it about a distinct design that conveys calm, wonder and excitement in the user and helps us recall a moment in time? Artisphere and Apartment Zero present the Washington, DC International Design Festival from Thursday, February 21 through Sunday, May 19. The cornerstone of this free three-month long multidisciplinary celebration of design is The Next Wave: Industrial Design Innovation in the 21st Century, a 4,000 square foot exhibition exploring innovation in product design from the last 13 years. Featuring one-offs, prototypes and pieces in production, The Next Wave focuses on innovation from Spain, Italy, Belgium, the U.K., Scandinavia, the Netherlands and the United States among others. On view will be over 100 objects covering the areas of lighting, tabletop, furniture, textile, product, electronics, housewares, tools and interactive design. The exhibition will be complemented by a series of free public programs, including lectures, film, video and photo competition as well as a small retail shop.
