It was on another rainy day last Sunday (There's been a lot of these recently) that I made the trek up 11th Ave from my office to ICFF at The Javitz Center. As usual I only had a few hours to get around but as usual it did not disappoint.
There were a lot of evident trends, the main one for me seem to be the return of copper and other metallics and the exploration of crates and packaging as inspiration for the silhouettes of many new lines. A huge amount of wire and thin structures seemed obvious. See all images above.
Glass was making a huge impact in beautiful colors and organic shapes with an emphasis on hand blown.
Tom Dixon was the standout for me with new product that is both exciting and sexy.
I had a great afternoon and can't wait for ICFF, 2014.
