my original idea for my ICFF post was going to the
"The Good the Bad and the Ugly".
But as soon as I pulled close enough to an
I would be besieged by sweet and eager people
looking to sell their "fabulous" wares.
It was just too much... I felt kind mean, and they were just so nice.
That and the fact that I had to actually talk to them about their
"disaster" made it too much to bare.
Here are highlights of things I simply liked, or got my attention,
mostly in a good way....
Tom Dixon seemed to be the star of this years show.
He seemed to be everywhere

His cubist crystalline enamels were nice too.
A mess of stools.

He is looking for a producer,
or so the sign said.
It reminded me of Max Lamb.
Steffen Kehrle Altelier
More Max Lamb memories for some reason.
Nice, in a brutalist way.
Not very German,
"I am ready for my close-up Mr. De Mille"
These things were so
Yet, I had to take a picture,
so they win!
Nice face for my collection.

I have seen.
I'd much rather have this one though....

Ufuk Keskin and Efecem Kutuk!
(I'm not even kidding!)
To prove I'm not

This was a sample collage of all her designs.
I wish this was a joke,
but it's not.
Nice job with the packing tape
Design Stockholm House!
Herman Miller is reissuing some of the
Nelson Case Goods.
I'm yawning again.
Plus, the finish was TERRIBLE.
Come on Herman Miller, get it together.
There were a lot of "demonstrations" going on.
This one at Artek included a Swedish Rockabilly
He was great, see him off to the left?
Why an I so chicken to take pictures of people!?
New and old in the Austrian Booth.
This was in the Yale booth.

Nice job person who I can't find the card of...

Good job with your Senior thesis Vanessa Leung!
This was in the Czech booth.
It's by A.M.O.S. Design.
The other side has muti-colored drawers
I'm liking this less as I write about it....
Not sure why this reeled me in either.
I usually hate "blob" furniture.
The booth was tight, with the one chair,
The girls working the booth were enthusiastic and cool.
It's an attention grabber....
The drawings were nice.
Almost trying too hard, but just right.
