Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF)
Furniture Fair (ICFF)
20th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) May
17-20, 2008 transformed New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention
Center into a worldwide wonder for design disciples. And MOD was
North America's singular showcase for contemporary design, the
Fair draws the most intrepid seekers of design truth and design
trends to an extraordinary exhibition of the most inspired models
of design on the forefront, as well as thought-provoking programs
and a schedule of supplementary exhibits and features.
During the Fair's four days, 145,000 net square feet (14,500 net
square meters) of the Javits Center bustled with more than 25,000
interior designers, architects, retailers, designers, manufacturers,
representatives, distributors, and developers.
More than 600 exhibitors displayed contemporary furniture, seating,
carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall
coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath for residential
and commercial interiors.
The MOD booth
featured new furniture designs by OFFECCT and lighting by ZERO,
both Swedish companies. Highlights included designs fresh
from the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February such as “Palma
Easy Chair” designed by Marre Moerel, “Amazonas Tables” by
Eero Koivisto, and “Tempo” by Andrea Ruggiero, all
for OFFECCT. The PXL Lamp and Camouflage by ZERO were favorites
of the Press and designers alike.
A Press Conference
that included Eero Koivisto, Martin Claesson, Ola Rune, Satyendra
Pakhalé, and Andrea Ruggiero drew a
big crowd and much press.. The design of the booth and the fresh
products presented were positively received by many who attended.
MOD is the US representative for both OFFECCT and ZERO.
