LOS ANGELES, CA -- Dwell on Design (dwellondesign.com), America's largest modern design event, returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center, June 21-23, 2013. DOD reimagines the trade show experience by transforming 200,000 square feet of concrete into a design incubator where prefab comes to life and design luminaires debate the issues of today. With more than 400 exhibitors, 200 speakers, 2000 products and an expected 30,000 attendees, DOD has become the largest design event in the US, showing how influential design is in every aspect of our modern world. Dwell is proud to announce The Lincoln Motor Company as the Presenting Auto sponsor, Design Partner jcpenney and Industry Partner The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). The event is produced by Dwell Media (www.dwell.com).
Much like European trade shows, Dwell on Design is broken up into zones, taking visitors on a journey through constructed wonderlands such as Dwell Outdoor, the Tech Zone, the modern family lounge - as well as Furniture and Kitchen & Bath. Both trade professionals and consumers will be saturated with home solutions that are sophisticated, modern and smart. Exhibitors include household names like Sub-Zero/Wolf, Kohler, GE Monogram, Emeco and American Express as well as modern staples such as Resource Furniture, Marimekko and Urbio.
Content continues to set DOD apart from other trade shows this year. Renowned architect and product designer, Michael Graves will kick off the weekend as Keynote Speaker and focus his inspiring presentation on design, including how his philosophy and perspective changed due to a life altering-illness. Continuing on three stages (Design Innovation stage; Sustainable Design stage; Business of Design/Demo stage) over three days, representatives from the Getty Conservation Institute, MOCA, LACMA, Sci-Arc, the MAK Center, Architecture for Humanity and The American Society of Interior Designers will host thought-provoking and educational panels open to all attendees.
