Designtex Supports Young Talent at Collective Design
This year marks Designtex’s inaugural participation in Offsite at the Collective Design fair curated by Sight Unseen. For its 2016 showcase, Bower x Studio Proba, Chris Wolston, Fort Makers and Only Love Is Real will debut a collection of furniture and lighting set against a backdrop of custom wallcovering developed specifically for the show in collaboration with Designtex. The site-specific murals are printed at Designtex Surface Imaging, a state-of-the-art facility in Portland, Maine, managed by an expert team of artists, technologists and craftspeople working together to create beautiful, engaging and one-of-a-kind environments.
The Collective Design fair is a commercial and educational platform featuring thoughtfully selected works from an international roster of established and emerging galleries.

Through its annual fair, Collective Design illuminates both the design process and the diversity of today’s material culture,originating a robust series of conversations and education programs to foster dialogue, encourage the exchange of ideas, and build a growing audience for collectible design.
