icff 2010: facets + organic shapes

i’ve slowly been plowing through the 450 photos i took at icff, breaking things into trends and highlights from the show. yesterday i focused on all the circles i saw everywhere, and today i’m touching on two opposing trends i noticed: hard angled faceted pieces and soft, organic, flowing shapes. i’m talking about both in this post so i hope you’ll check out the full post to see some of the gorgeous organic shapes at the show- like a beautiful cloud lamp on stilts.

I love the book lights, too, they are so versatile! And that ‘ faceted’ bench, interesting definition – it’s everywhere!

Just when you thought you’ve seen it all ~
What a cool collection ! And that cloud on stilts ~ Wow ! And the faceted pendant lamps from Diesel. TY. :)


Lovely post!

Hmmm, I can’t find the cloud stilt lamp at abovo booth, what a shame. It’s a great idea for a lamp!


I have seen some of these items on another newsletter but….your coverage was so much more in depth! Thank you! I think I am in love with the LZF lamp installation! Oh, on a side note….I live in Iowa and don’t get to see a lot of modern design. You provide a very valuable service! Thank you!
