Every year during New Yorkks International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), designers from all walks congregate for an orgiastic string of events and parties that now stretches to a full week, officially designated Design Week by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in 2005. In this issue, we offer aguide to the week's activities, as well as profiles of three off-site eventssin Williamsburg, DUMBO, and the Meatpacking Districttwhose fresh energy is giving ICFF a run for its money. We also highlight architects' forays into future design, including the work of Foster and Partners, Future Systems, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, and the late Joe Colombo. Bringing their discipline and style to a smaller scale, these architects prove that true talent has no limits.
