This clever Folding Chair by Monstrans is made from a single sheet of renewable bamboo plywood, minimizing waste and material use. Felt pads provide a comfy seat, and when the chair is not in use it can be easily folded up and stored in a closet or hung on a wall.

Behold – the world’s smallest chandelier! Mineheart downplays the overindulgent splendor of gilt baroque luminaires with this tiny energy-efficient version that’s every bit as elegant – and perfect for small space living.

This multifunctional Birdhouse Bookshelf from Thing Industries can be mounted on any wall, providing space for stashing books and small items without the visual weight (or material use) of a bedside table.

Pablo Studio‘s brand new energy-saving Circa Lamp gives off a soft, even white light thanks to its integrated flat panel LEDs. The lamp can be easily adjusted thanks to its swiveling head, and it’s available in table, floor, and pendant models.

In addition to her colorful colander lights, designer Nadia Belalia unveiled a glowing green lamp made from recycled pot scrubbers.

Meystle rolled out their beautiful line of LED wallpaper, which adds a warm ambient glow to any room.

Kalin Asenov‘s Accretion Lamp is a walnut ring that contains constellations of LED lights along its inner rim. Lengths of golden wire stretch between the bulbs, illuminating the void with delicate strands of light.

British Columbia-based Hinterland creates these beautiful Nurselogs from salvaged wood and recycled glass planter inserts. Reminiscent of rain forest stumps, the plant-topped logs can serve as stools or side tables.

We’ve featured Formlabslow-cost, high-quality 3D printer in the past, so we were excited to finally see it in all its glory on the ICFF show floor. The streamlined desktop device can 3d print details that are accurate up to .001 inch.

Erika Cross‘ minimalist Cork Chair is made from leftover waste from the bottle stopper industry. The flexible cork seat is set over a simple steel structure that provides support.

David Irwin created these colorful Egg Cups and Vessels by hand turning locally sourced woods – including ash, beech, cherry, holy, and lime. The interior of each dish is painted blue to match the color of British birds’ eggs.

New Zealand-based David Hakaraia creates these delicate LED lamps by laser cutting Maori-inspired patterns into wood veneer shades. The pendants have a plain wood surface until the light is flipped on – at which point they glow with intricately etched patterns.

Dinosaur attack! Inhabitat favorite D-Torso turned heads left and right with a gigantic 3D T-Rex made from cardboard.
