ICFF 2012: Something multicolored, something blue, and many things new.
It’s not borrowed. It’s multicolored, and it’s sometimes blue.
Not talking about “June weddings.” In this case, it’s the ICFF show (International Contemporary Furniture Fair). A great place to see international contemporary culture expressed in design. Sometimes reflective of something old, and in many cases something new, and always interesting.
In any case, I always find this show enjoyable on many levels. Seeing many of the latest new products, color trends and design trends from international designers, and talking with some of them in person, is an experience I find fun and inspiring.
So, to share just a few of the items that piqued my interest for a number of reasons…
I enjoyed a brief conversation with Jamie Harris, the artist who created these beautiful hand blown glass light fixtures
Still on the subject of light, check out these amazing solid acrylic tubes. Colors infuse the entire material throughout, and the colors change as you move around the piece according to viewing angles. Even the edges are luminously multicolored
Imagine the setting for these beautifully sculptural light fixtures.
Moving along to see some furniture, something I always enjoy.
Note: the picture on their web site is Not of their ICFF booth…at least not the one I saw there.
And last, but not least, for now…
So much to see and enjoy in one day, these are just a few of my favorites.
Do you have a favorite? If so, which piece–and where would you use it?
