Thirty-three designers and firms are participating in this year’s Launch Pad, a WantedDesign program that invites designers from around the globe to share their new products and connect with potential manufacturers, retailers or distributors. Design Milk founder and executive editor Jaime Derringer will meet and judge each of the participating studios and designers, awarding the top prize to one of their products. The public will also be invited to vote online for their favorite designer, beginning April 1.
