The International Contemporary Furniture Fair - Part 1
Ladies and Gentlemen...the main event! The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) starts off on May 14th and runs until the 17th.
With over 500 exhibitors and an estimated attendance of over 30 thousand, ICFF still remains the must see of NYC x Design. So many of the lines we represent are there that we will bring you two separate days of coverage.
Lambert et Fils
Montreal lighting designers and manufacturers Lambert et Fils will be releasing their new Laurent collection which include 6 new pendants and chandeliers with the theme of globes penetrated through their equators by brass and black steel ornaments.
The company founder Samuel Lambert feels, "The different variations make it an apt lighting fixture for the home as well as for applications in the public realm where Laurent can really take on its fullest dimension through a rhythmic repetition."
Find Lambert et Fils at ICFF booth 1454.
The Danish Design brand Mater will be premiering their new contemporary LED Liuki Pendant. Created by Finnish designer Maija Puoskari the Liuku design uses "wood and glass with a sustainable long-lasting light source".
Mater Design founder and CEO, Henrik Marstrand describes the Liuku Pendant as capturing the "beauty of Scandinavian elegance, characterized by the blond oak wood, calm colors and honest materials."
The various shapes of the Liuku Pendant's fixtures are made with European oak and the hand blown shades are available in several pastel tones.
Mater will also be reintroducing a line titled, The Danish Classics, which feature designs dating back to the 1950's and honors Danish designers Ejvind A. Johansson and Jorgen Baekmark.
Mater will be displaying at booth 2156.
At ICFF, British designer Tom Dixon will be continuing his tribute to the basic material building blocks used in many of his projects. He writes, "Visit us at ICFF New York to find out more about the substances that we shape, the raw matter that we form into these extraordinary objects for everyday use."
For this exhibition, Dixon will be showing two collections that premiered at Salon del Mobile and one new line debuting at ICFF. These collections include Curve, Fade and Flask Oil. Pictured above is a pendant from the new Flask Oil line which features a fresnel lens.
