Find us in the red bays!

November-December 2018
Tuesday-Saturday: 11am-7pm

The Chicago Design Market is an assembly of five connected pop-up stores on the third floor of Block 37, managed by the Design Museum of Chicago. The Market features established local brands alongside emerging artists and designers in the spirit of the design museum’s mission to inspire, innovate, and educate through design.

1—Will Byington (Photography): Will Byington is a professional photographer that creates the moments that matter to us on stage, in the outfield or on a dream vacation. Byington’s portfolio includes everyone from Presidents and politicians to entertainment icons such as Hugh Hefner, Richard Branson, Mickey Rooney and Ernest Borgnine just to name a few.

2—Chicago Playtest Society (Games): The Chicago Playtest Society is an underground dining series whose goal is to foster a friendly and welcoming tabletop gaming community in Chicago. This is their first store, featuring a curated collection of tabletop games and other gifts. Drop by and let our expert staff help find you the perfect game to play with your friends, your family, or even just yourself.

3—Matty & Lou (Clothing): A unique boutique featuring comfy & trendy clothing. All pieces are one-of-a-kind selections handpicked by our owner & trendsetter. M&L is best known for featuring high-end looks at affordable prices. We will be showcasing our holiday collection so stop in to find your perfect holiday outfit and gifts!

4—You Are Beautiful (2019 Calendars & Other Products): You Are Beautiful is more than a little sticker, it’s an idea. It’s a way to brighten someone’s day, a way to pat a stranger on the back, a way to remind ourselves that even when things aren’t going great, it’s ok. This store features all current You Are Beautiful products, including, of course, the little metallic sticker that started it all.

5—Winter Coat Drive (Leave a coat, design museum donates to a shelter): It’s cold out there! Bring your extra coats, leave them here, and they will be donated to Chicago-area shelters and non-profit organizations like The Women’s Treatment Center. Raid your closets for your neighbors!
