Gallery: ICFF 2008: Highlights from the NY furniture fair


Inhabitat is at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in NYC, and we’ve been scouring the show all weekend for the hottest sustainable design finds. We’ve had a great time catching up with some of our all time favorite designers, and discovering a bounty of fresh ideas from this year’s new innovators.

We’ve been most inspired by the work coming out of students and recent grads from the CCA (California College of the Arts) Eco-chair competition, as well as BVDcollective’s Waste Not collection made from recycled materials. Trends we’ve noticed so far include intricate lasercut lighting, lasercut aluminum tables (does the world need any more of these, really?), and eco-friendly children’s furniture. We will be bringing coverage on all of the exciting designs we’ve found from this four day design extravaganza, so keep it tuned here for the best sustainable design coverage from ICFF.
