International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF)

International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF)
May, 2008

The 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 there…

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.
