    ARTEK: Artek welcomed the Ilmari Tapiovaara furniture collection to its repertoire at the end of 2010. Ilmari Tapiovaara (1914-1999) was one of the greatest interior architects and designers of his era. His products, mostly intended for public spaces, were based on the same ideological premises of Alvar Aalto, another artisan whom he greatly admired. The Trienna table is one of four available in Artek’s Tapiovaara collection. View larger

    VIVA: Inspired by its namesake, Lava, Viva’s collection comes in nine colors and a variety of sizes (80 cm x 80 cm; 60 cm x 60 cm; 30 cm x 60 cm; 15 cm x 60 cm). It resembles a splatter of lava and features natural finishes and majolica (ceramic) surfaces. Viva is under the umbrella of Ceramic Tiles of Italy, a group that connects Italian manufacturers with the American interior design industry. View larger

  • Hellman Chang

    HELLMAN CHANG: Daniel Hellman and Eric Chang, owners of this Brooklyn-based design company, welcomed additions to their Meridian collection at ICFF such as the side table shown here. The Meridian line is inspired by the New York City skyline and is a nod to the duo’s view from Brooklyn. It’s meant to capture the beauty of the way the sun reflects off the buildings during dawn and dusk, achieving that with a swooping bevel that helps catch the light on the randomly facing pillars in the base.

  • Herman Miller

    HERMAN MILLER: Herman Miller took it back to their notorious roots with their ICFF offerings this year. With a stand that was a replication of the Irwin Miller house (a landmark home in Columbus, Indiana), the booth featured new finishes and outdoor options from the Eames Aluminum Group. Natural stone table top options were also on display, as well as a new Modern Classic Leather (MCL) shown on the infamous Eames chaise. View larger

  • Royal Botania

    ROYAL BOTANIA: Step back into the 60s with the Fold collection from Royal Botania. This modular, outdoor line has the style and sass for indoor environments as well. A polyacrylic shell and shiny electro-polished stainless-steel base support a full range of deluxe, all-weather cushions. A variety of combinations are available thanks to corner and middle pieces, as well as a lounge model. Tables and footrests in dark woodprint from Trespa or white acrylic are also among options.

    SANTA & COLE: New formats, supports, colors and sizes of the Moaré lamp from Santa & Cole were added and on display at ICFF. Moaré was named for the effect of asymmetric waters that its superimposed shades create. The line’s name has also been updated to Serie Moaré. Santa & Cole was located within the Interiors from Spain pavilion. View larger

Solid walnut frames have walnut veneer surfaces on MDF and the drawer fronts come in MDF-lacquered or bamboo on walnut veneer MDF. Think Fabricate is the industrial design arm of Doban Architecture.

    TRACY GLOVER: Tracy Glover’s Jewel Box collection made a breathtaking statement as an eye- and light-catching customizable system of tethered handblown glass. Shapes are handblown to order by Glover in Rhode Island and come in any size up to 7 in. diameter and 12 in. long, strung on either a brushed nickel or brushed brass chain, or a stainless steel cable.

    SIFAS: Sakura from Sifas, designed by Mark Robson, is an indoor-outdoor collection featuring woven Hydropass®: a three-dimensional network of polyester fibers woven into a honeycomb mesh. It allows the surface to dry in 30 minutes as water passes through the network immediately and without retention, stagnation or risk of mold. Four models range from fully upright to fully reclined.

  • Trove

    /Portals/3/images/online/0511/I_0511_ICFFwrapupTrove.jpg

    TROVE: Perhaps the biggest story coming out of ICFF this year was Trove’s Stoneground®, a “wallpaper” comprised of approximately 80 percent mineral powder and 20 percent non-toxic resin. This huge environmental story boasts a number of impressive facts. Stoneground requires 20-30 percent less ink than regular paper, no water to produce, and of course no wood products. It’s also water and tear resistant. Trove has plans to completely convert all product production to this material. View larger
