International Contemporary Furniture Fair, ICFF 2009, a world wide wonder for design disciplines is currently underway at New York City’s Jacob K. Javit Convention Center. Ikea PS introduced more than 20 new products at the expo. I thought I would start with the ones that stood out immediately. The fair is open to public on May 19.
Maskros. This dandelion inspired pendant light is my favorite. I cant wait to get one. When lit the shadows on the wall reflect a dandelion ready to be scattered by the wind.
IPS Hallar. Designer Maria Vinka was inspired by the way hills and mountains are drawn on a map. This seat is made of banana fibers, seagrass, cotton and steel
Brygga. Easy swivel chair was inspired by a pier
Vava. This light fixture was inspired by dried sea urchins -spiky weaving and discus shaped body is made from palm leaf and powder coated steel.
August. Leather and pine daybed or bench
What I admire about Ikea’s products is the clear focus on practical function, innovative designs, sustainability all at very economical prices. More products introduced by Ikea PS at ICFF 09 NY coming soon.
