My Visit to ICFF

I've been in NYC visiting the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (affectionately known as ICFF).  I love this show because it offers a great view of global contemporary design in a relatively small show footprint.  Between trade and the general public, over 25,000 people visit ICFF.  Somehow the show always manages to attract over 600 innovative exhibitors.  I had the pleasure of talking with a few of them that I found interesting.  Take a look!

What’s happening on the aisles at ICFF 2009:

Click each link below for videos of the most interesting people I met at the show!

Meet Jonathan Adler Designs : The style at Jonathan Adler is all about color and being bold in choices.  Their work is rooted in mid century modern style with modern twists on everything!  

Meet Vitra: A classic arbiter of design, Vitra offers designs from iconic designers of the past and the future.  Vitra caters to many different ideas of style while consistently offering timeless quality.  

Meet Alpha Workshops: Not only is Alpha Workshops the only not-for-profit organization in the country that trains and employs people living with HIV/AIDS in the decorative arts, but they also create beautiful, handpainted wallcoverings. 

Meet Wilsonart and the Philadelphia University Industrial Design Program: The two have partnered to present compelling work by students who were challenged with creating a design solution using the simple form of a Wilsonart laminate sample.  Students chosen to exhibit at ICFF have successfully put the "art" in Wilsonart!  Visit www.wilsonart.com/ and Philadelphia University's Industrial Design Program for more information.

Meet Studio Cochineal: A unique design build company that specializes in colorful and contemporary furniture, Studio Cochineal reminds us that loving your work is what it's all about. 

Meet Jamie Harris:  You've seen hand blown glass, but nothing like the work of Jamie Harris.  His combinations of colors and organic shapes are the next generation of the classic art.
