ICFF 2011

I went to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) over the weekend and came across some great design. As an environmental and print graphic designer, I actually found some of the booth designs and promo material more exciting than the furniture itself, but there is no denying that it was all inspiring!

Love the wrapping-surface vinyl typography throughout this display (plus the aqua-colored type goes well with the glossy pale pink and black lighting fixtures!)

oink oink. AREAWARE

When I get rich and can afford fancy furniture, I am getting everything from the Portuguese company Boca Do Lobo. I even adore the black-on-black zebra-print wallpaper!

This was a really cute way to distribute promotional material at Dupenny.

I've gotta be honest: I'm generally not into the whole eco-friendly design thing, but I was super impressed by these designs from Art of the Board which recycle broken skateboards to create furniture, environmental displays, etc.

Metropolis Magazine had my favorite booth design; they used cyan, magenta, and yellow strings to create the booth's structure and displayed old issue covers along the top.

Love Dorthy Draper! So of course I fell for this furniture by Kindel.
