International Contemporary Furniture Fair – ICFF, New York

Booth Mock Up Render 1 Edited

I recently applied to show some of my furniture designs at the ICFF in New York from May 16th – 19th. The ICFF is North America’s premier showcase for contemporary design. Above is a mockup of what my 10′ x 5′ booth could look like. If selected to exhibit I plan to loop videos of the fabrication process of the Bow Spring Chairs and the gridshell light system that I am developing.

For the four-day duration of the Fair, 165,000 net square feet (15,300 net square meters) of the Javits Center will be abuzz with more than 32,000 interior designers, architects, retailers, representatives, distributors, facility managers, developers, manufacturers, store designers, and visual merchandisers. On Tuesday, May 19, the ICFF opens its doors to the general public, as well.

More than 700 exhibitors from all points of the globe will display contemporary furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath for residential and commercial interiors. This remarkable throng of exhibitors creates an unparalleled opportunity to view a broad yet highly focused selection of the world’s finest, most innovative, and original avant-garde home and contract products side-by-side, under one roof.

Swissnex 1‘A New Vision for Isenau’

The new vision for Isenau began from an in-depth analysis of the Swiss mountain village of Les Diablerets. The project attempts to resolve the immediate infrastructural problems while also addressing the ongoing discussion of climate change and the future of snow. The plinth acts as a new geography, precisely directing ski, pedestrian and vehicular circulation on site, while the bridge completes the end of Isenau ski slope and forms a covered entrance into the youth hostel below. The open multi-use plinths provide space for ski circulation in the winter and local food and wine markets in the summer, ensuring the site has life in all four seasons.
