ICFF 2012: Part 2

We really loved the Kohler booth; it was probably our favorite booth (and not just because they had a phone charging station!) I think they did a great job of embracing and promoting their collaboration with Jonathan Adler.

The booth, which was actually a shipping container painted chartreuse, was over the top: the staff were colorfully dressed and when Jonathan himself stopped by, they served fancy blue drinks and blue and yellow cotton candy. Oh look here he is:

Plus, the colorful vintage tub sofas were a huge hit… we might see them available for sale soon!

I’m always interested to see what Benjamin Rollins Caldwell is up to. This year, he had these amazing copper tubing chair and table as well as this concrete chair. The most interesting part about the concrete chair is that it’s made by pouring concrete into a chair-shaped dirt hole, so the entire chair is made upside-down, and then removed from the hole when the concrete is dry.

Design House Stockholm has a new magazine table that allows you to stack mags all the way from the floor up to the top of the table, as well as a chair that comes apart in five easy-to-assemble tools-free pieces.

Eastvold Furniture had a simple, stacked booth with some beauties.

Urbio was one of my faves – I’ve been coveting these since Sabrina Soto mentioned them in her Friday Five… They are modular magnetic containers perfect for plants, tools, supplies, just about anything! Now that I’ve seen it in person, I need it even more.

This outdoor wallpaper by Tracy Kendall is amazing – made from Tyvek material.

Nolen Niu fully embraced a black, gray and yellow booth. Great stuff, too.

Loved Blu Dot’s new Hot Mesh (ha!) chair – only $99!

I stopped and chatted with Jake Dyson about his new light, which has the most amazingly fluid one-touch motion. It’s fantastic. And what a great guy! Stay tuned for more from him…

ROLLOUT worked with the MTA to create an urban-inspired series that takes transportation to a new level.

This is a great new collab between Objeti and Mark Moskovitz, maker of that fabulous wood stack chest of drawers.I also liked these cute hinged step tables by Objeti:

We also were drawn to these textured tiles by Interlam.
