2011 ICFF Gallery

2011 NY Design Week Events

Here’s a few selection from the gallery to wrap up coverage for this year.

Technical LED desk lamp prototype from NJ-based StudioLobot.

Maria Lopes documents people’s definition of consciousness on brain shaped cards. Her project The Consciousness Field started as a gallery installation and has evolved into a wallcovering prototype which will contain curated definitions from people around the world as well a blank ‘brains’ for people to add their own.

Philadelphia-based Mio introduced a new environmentally friendly alternative to flat ceiling tiles. The sculptural tiles are made of fire retardant -treated FSC certified cardboard.

Peter Stathis exhibited a new light for HumanScale called ‘Horizon’. It is the first desk lamp to use Thin Film LED technology. The lamp thickness is slimmer than the width of an iPhone.

Offi & Company showed the Half Pipe Desk by Eric Pfeiffer which takes inspiration from skateboarding ramps.

Mash Studios from Los Angeles presented shelving units made with a combination of powder-coated metal, fabric panels, and pine. The pine was carefully finished to look raw but has a stealthy protective finish.

ARXE from Spain had a great collection of refurbished industrial and theatrical lights. The canister lights retrofitted with LED lights are particularly cool.

NY-based Kikkerland had the most eye catching booth supporting their Mexico Design Challenge. The project invited 25 students from the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo to develop product ideas with a Mexican cultural reference. Kikkerland held a vote to decide which of the product prototypes would make it to production.
