Design week is almost upon us in New York, and the biggest show of the season is of course, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair [2] at the Javits Center. This year, ICFF [2] is getting greened up by “The Green6, [3]” a booth dedicated entirely to providing gorgeous evidence of a new generation of design, in which sustainability is an indispensable aspect of a good product. Green6 will feature six of New York’s leading sustainable design studios: Brave Space [4] (makers of the long-adored [5] Tetris shelves [6]), Cambium Studio [7], Fire & Water [8], Niche Design [9], Moe Design Studio [10], and Vivavi [11] by Delano Collection [12].

The booth itself will be constructed with eco-friendly materials, donated by Bettencourt Green Building Supplies [13] (who are also hosting HauteGREEN [14]). No doubt after this weekend, nobody will be able to dispute the fact that good green design is not just emerging, it’s here.
