With over 2,000 products, 400 exhibitors, 150 speakers, and 30,000 expected attendees, this highly anticipated three-day affair has easily become America’s largest design event.

The exhibition features 20,000 square feet of space filled with prefabricated structures that highlight the most important aspects of contemporary design. The show is divided into various sections including Dwell Outdoor, the Tech Zone, the Modern Family Lounge, Furniture, and Kitchen & Bath and features renowned leaders in industrial, home appliance, and furniture design such as Miele, Kohler, GE Monogram, Resource Furniture, and Marimekko.

Dwell Media has put together an exciting program for this year’s show, featuring a motivating Keynote Address to be delivered by architect and industrial designer, Michael Graves, who will share how his perspective on design and quality of life was altered as a result of his life-changing illness. Other highlights include an impressive lineup of speakers and panel discussions, the AIA/LA Restaurant Design Awards, the 3rd annual Dwell on Design Awards, two days of Green Car test drives, and Design Clinics that will offer visitors practical advice on architecture, landscape, and inerior design.


Sett Studio

While the show provides design lovers with numerous reasons to attend, the main attraction remains the prefabs that fill the show floor. Designers construct outdoor environments, complete with fresh greenery and lush vegetation, in an indoor setting. Some of this year’s most prominent exhibitors include Sett Studio, whose design philosophy holds that maximum efficiency can be achieved through a union of design, material, and space, Piece Homes, which balances an eco-friendly home with personal taste, and LivingHomes, which address environmental and urban issues through portable building. Attendees can walk through garden pods, trailers, and outdoor lounges and have their questions answered by  The Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD).
