de LaB Brings Back Making LA

The intellectually-spiked design salon brings back the next iteration of MAKING LA, the highly successful design conference they hosted back in 2014.  Rather than a best practices conference, this version of MAKING LA takes select ideas a step further, offering seed funding to the winners of this fast-paced shark tank format design pitching carnival.  More information will be available soon.

de LaB MAKING LA put over 300 of LA's brightest designers and policy makers in one room to talk about best practices in transportation, density, community, and water.

INTRO/LA Taps In to LA's Amped Up Design Game

The third edition of INTRO/LA will take place June 9 - 10 returning with a strong lineup of international and Los Angeles based designers and manufacturers.  The INTRO concept was launched in 2013 in New York, as an intimate platform to present a highly selective cross section of international contemporary and modern design from a broad range of industry disciplines. The show aims to provide an alternative experience to the standard design trade show environment, by integrating a series of design installations into one cohesive exhibit. 2015 saw the introduction of the Los Angeles show, INTRO/LA. The multi-brand event was a welcome addition to the Los Angeles Design Festival calendar, and is now one of the headline events. The event is organized and hosted by design agency and resource, smallpond.  INTRO/LA simply proves that LA is amping up its design game.
