New York’s Model Citizens…

Measuring Light 2010 by Design Since

As the door slams shut on Milan, across the pond the Americans are in the thick of preparations for the upcoming International Contemporary Furniture Fair.  Taking place from May 13th until the 17th there are all the usual goings on that:

will map the newest frontier of what’s best and what’s next in design…

Equally as exciting are the “off program” exhibitions and gatherings that run concurrently to the main event, maximising the presence of International buyers, investors and manufacturers.  One such venture in its third year is Model Citizens NYC:

Part exhibit part trade show, Model Citizens NYC provides an opportunity for independent and emerging designers to have access to the ICFF and New York Design Week…

Staged at the Chelsea Art Museum, the break-away exhibition has all the exuberance and free thinking of creativity not bound by commercial restraint – well worth a look if you find yourself in New York City this May.

New York, New Work…

Milan has been and gone, the volcanic ash has (for now) shown signs of settling, and it’s already half way through May…

That means that it’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) time in New York!

In two days time, the curtain goes up on the 22nd ICFF exhibition showcasing 590 of the latest and most exciting names in contemporary furniture, lighting, interiors and accessory design.  Coming from over 40 countries (pending volcanic activity), offering a wealth of exhibitors showcasing new trends, challenging old conventions and boasting buckets of inspiration, the fair itself is expecting over 24,000 attendees in the short three days it is open.

This year we are particularly blown away by the sneak peek we have been given of the LZF Lamps display.

Two storey high illuminated timber butterfly made from Agatha and Totem Pendants? Yes please!

Music by Rithma (as heard in the KE-ZU showroom during Saturday InDesign 2009)? Don’t mind if we do!

Live graffiti art painted by Inocuo onto the booth throughout the show? Why not!?

Can’t make it to New York for the 18th?   We feel your pain! Click here for a look at LZF’s lamps and screens that are being launched in New York.

Exciting stuff!  Keep an eye out for RS Barcelona and Kenneth Cobonpue also!

Check back here over the next week as we reveal the latest from ICFF, 2010!
