ICFF Opening Night Party at the MoMA

As always, the ICFF Opening NIght Party at MoMA was a veritable Who’s Who in the design industry. The place was packed with top-notch designers, editors and manufacturers from around the world. Despite a few drops of rain every now and again, the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden was a magnificent place to spend a Saturday evening. We started on the “Joseph and the Amazing Techna-Colored Dream Coat” floor – part of the Color Chart – Reinventing Color 1950 to Today exhibition and buzzed around museum. It was fun to watch everyone’s reaction to the Olafur Eliasson exhibit – Take Your Time. Adults turned into kids in a candy store – excited to see what was waiting behind each wall. My personal favorite was the room with the strobe light and the waterfall. The light illuminates the thin curtain of water – which causes the eye to freeze the droplets in midair. If there wasn’t a huge party going on downstairs, I think I could have watched for hours.

I am remiss to say that after many hours at the show, the battery in my camera was exhausted (as the warning reads before the camera turns off.) Despite the best-laid plans, sometimes technology may fail you…but friends never do. These photos are courtesy of the lovely Eve Dilworth from Metropolis. Thanks Eve!
