COUNTDOWN TO NYE
The Vision and Strategies Behind a New Program for Innovations in Public Space Furnishing
The Times Square Alliance has launched its inaugural prototypes from a new program titled Times Square Design Lab. These commissioned designs for public space are designed by New York City designers Brad Ascalon, Joe Doucet, Louis Lim, DYAD by Doug Fanning, and Hive Public Space. The program is being managed by 6¢ Design, and introduces Times Square as a laboratory for new solutions to enhance public spaces and as a venue to present New York’s design talent and community. The designs in the inaugural 2018 Design Lab provide new solutions for seating, meeting, and signage, with the intent to provide customers and manufacturers among other public and private space managers nationally and internationally.
