icff 2012: geometric designs

It’s time for ICFF again! This year’s show wasn’t quite as packed as years past (in terms of things I wanted to cover), but I definitely spotted some geometric designs that I not only wanted to write about but also hide in my bag and take home. I’m sure this angular trend will wind down at some point, but right now triangles, trapezoids and any other right-angle-type shape you can name is hot. My favorites are above and below, but stay tuned for more geometry at the stationery show soon . . . xo, grace

Images above: I loved this little pavilion created by the students from Parsons.

Image above: These USB drives were so, so gorgeous. I wanted 10 of them immediately. They were $100 a piece, though, so I left empty-handed. Argh. “Empty Memory” was designed by Yookyung Shin.

Images above: More gorgeous geometric pieces from Egg Collective. That table. Oh man, that table. I want to make out with it. And the little tables? They adjust higher or lower by turning them. Swoon.

More new design after the jump . . .

I like that structure from the first two photos. I could imagine a terrace with a nice and confort table and sofas under it. I´m not sure which is it´s function, but that´s what I imagine.

The structure in the top two pictures was actually created using Carnegie’s Xorel product. Amazing stuff.
