Each year in January, Detroit's attention turns to design with the North American International Auto Show. In 2009 , the Detroit Artists Market will take its own look at design with the 2009 DAM Design Show. This show will look at the entire process from concept to design to creation of an artistic and functional piece. Ten designers will take on this process in creating "Chair". Each of the designers or design teams have been invited from various disciplines - artists, designers, architects, engineers, carpenters, and others - and bring their special eye and talent to the process.

Five jewelry designers will exhibit their works in a special Jewelry Concepts fashion show produced by Detroit Fashion Pages taking place during the opening night's ticketed event reception at 8:30pm. Hair by Alex Emilio Salon in Royal Oak, makeup by Marijana Camaj and music by DJ Michael Oxner.

The 2009 DAM Design Show will run for two weeks at DAM. Following, the work will be featured at the furniture and design showroom MEZZANINE, February 4 - 15, 2009.
