May’s a big month for design conferences in New York. If you’re lucky enough to be in the Big Apple from May 21-23 you can hop between the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and the first-annual Mobile Living Conference.

Mobile Living, which is being organized by designers David Shearer and Miguel Calvo, will showcase the most innovative designs for mobile homes, prefabs, and temporary housing.

“Our ever increasing need to be in touch, stay in touch, work from wherever we are, has created new technology where computers and phones are the tools that drive the new economy and support our new nomadic way of life. Automobiles, airplanes, and hotel rooms have become our home away from home with many of us spending more hours there than in the actual spaces we own� This event will offer a unique look into the way people live and work in the new mobile society.”

Adam Khalkin, Jennifer Siegel of Office of Mobile Design fame, and the Buckminster Fuller Institute will be among the exhibitors.
