An exhibition of authentic modern design selected by DWR, Surface and WantedDesign

Design Within Reach, Inc., today announces its participation at WantedDesign 2013 with “The Past, Present and Future of Authentic Modern Design,” an exhibition of designers who represent the future of the design industry. Additionally, the event marks the launch of the Helix Table (2012) in four styles, the first collection created exclusively for Design Within Reach by Atlanta-based designer Chris Hardy.

Opening to the public on May 18 and running through May 20, “The Past, Present and Future” showcases furniture, textiles and accessories created by an international group of designers. While materials and methods differ, the commonalities of smart design, solving old problems in new ways and being relevant to how we live ring true in their works. Jointly selected by Design Within Reach, WantedDesign and Surface magazine, participants include Meg Callahan (U.S.), Pauline Deltour (France), Fort Standard (U.S.), Tamasyn Gambell (U.K.), Asher Israelow (U.S.), Kaschkasch Cologne (Germany) and Jonah Takagi (U.S.).

To promote social media interaction around the exhibit, the company will launch an online voting component via its Facebook page on Friday, April 26, 2013. Fans may vote for a chance to win their favorite product. Voting ends on Monday, May 20, 2013, at 7pm EST. One entry per person.

From producing licensed works by midcentury masters to launching the work of today’s brightest stars to helping create career paths for future designers, Design Within Reach is passionate about design – from the past, present and future. Please visit us at WantedDesign.
