World Market Center Las Vegas is proud to be a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council and is dedicated to the promotion of sustainable home furnishings. As part of its annual Summer Market (July 28-Aug 1 2008), the Las Vegas Design Center and the Living Green Pavilion will again present sustainable educational programs and juried exhibits for the residential and contract furnishings industry. Located in the heart of Las Vegas, the World Market Center is the fastest-growing upscale market in the country.
Metropolis examines contemporary life through design-architecture, interior design, product design, graphic design, crafts, planning, and preservation. Subjects range from the sprawling urban environment to intimate living spaces to small objects of everyday use. In looking for why design happens in a certain way, Metropolis explores the economic, environmental, social, cultural, political, and technological context. With its innovative graphic presentation and its provocative voice, Metropolis shows how richly designed our world can be.
