Jerry Helling, Bernhardt Design’s globe-trotting president, probably spends more time in the air than on the ground. When he does touch down, he sleuths out the best local design talent. Lately his focus has been The Carrot Concept (thecarrotconcept.com), a new collective of Salvadoran designers (furniture, textile, architectural) who have aligned to promote their work in the international market. By joining forces, they increase their global visibility. “The El Salvador design community has come so far so quickly, and this alliance encourages the designers to maintain the momentum. Think ‘carrot on a stick,’” says The Carrot Concept cofounder Harry Washington, who in May will present his group’s pieces, like stools by Claudia & Harry Washington, at WantedDesign in New York City (May 17–20; 269 11th Ave.; wanteddesignnyc.com).
