#WAVENEWYORK installation in Times Square

A centerpiece of NYCxDesign's Times Square design festival.


Our #WAVENEWYORK installation was a centerpiece of NYCXDESIGN’s Times Square design festival from Thursday May 18 to Friday 22, 10am-9pm.

#WAVENEWYORK, a 14 foot high, 425 square foot walk-though “touch and see” experiential installation was situated on a pedestrian-friendly plaza in Times Square between 44th Street and Seventh Avenue. The installation has been designed by Kaynemaile’s inventor Kayne Horsham and American artist and MacArthur fellow Ned Kahn, who are also currently working on a dramatic art installation in a high profile New York City location, to be unveiled later this year.

“We’re thrilled to be participating in NYCxDESIGN and bringing #WAVENEWYORK to the Times Square Design Pavilion,” said Kayne Horsham, CEO of Kaynemaile. “New York is a global capital of innovation and a leader in the worldwide design community. It is exciting to come from New Zealand to show how our materials bring human touch and joy to hard urban spaces.”

“#WAVENEWYORK by Kaynemaile will be a highly visible and vibrant focus of the Times Square Design Pavilion,” says Ilene Shaw, director and curator of NYCxDesign. “The material is beautiful, the installation design is playful and interactive, and the concept has pure innovation at its core. It’s an honor to have Kaynemaile at Design Pavilion 2017.”
