icff 2009: adler, ochre, and much more

by Grace Bonney

my icff image folder is practically empty so it looks like today will my the last day for icff coverage on d*s. stay tuned for my favorite part- the student design booths- next. but first, here are some more great designs from the 2009 show. [image above: ‘dodecahedron light’ by woka, vienna]

i loved this ‘sola’ desk/chair by talitha james. oh to be the student who gets to sit in this every day- so chic.

a gorgeous wooden ‘phenomena screen’ by sang hoon kim.

soft faceted block stools, called “above”, by bERT&dENNIS.

this wooden bench was so simple, but so striking in person. i loved the combination of smooth, clean cortes blanco wood and powder coated steel. the ‘clavijas’ collection was inspired by wrought iron nails found in a blacksmith’s shop and was designed by KIU.

a selection of drawer pulls from ochre. i’d love to use the dark handles on bright white kitchen drawers.

chic leather furniture from ochre. i loved the scalloped edge on the white leather bench.

jonathan adler added a wonderful series of casegoods and upholstered furniture to his collection, all with his trademark groovy style.
