Spotted at #NYIGF12

By danielle


After I made my way through registration….

…I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon scouring the NYIGF Accent on Design aisles for one product that stands-out in terms of superlative design, form and function, talent, creativity and innovation. It was no easy task as this year’s NYIGF was packed with playful products. In line with trade show trends, color is making a comeback. We spotted lots of vibrant hues from tangerine (Pantone’s 2012 color of the year) to cobalt blue to fuchsia.

Introducing FARBENLEHRE COLOR. German-born jewelry designer Katrin Zimmermann took a break from black & white and is bringing some color into her collection with these pliable rubber, long neon necklaces that can be wound around several times and double as bracelets.

The new arrivals include modern bedding sets in citrine, tangerine and kelly green!

That’s no ordinary bull. This wooly animal is one of the many adorable creatures designed by Sindy Posso. Each twooly is entirely and carefully handmade by skillful Mayan in the South of Mexico.

The Nervous System booth design alternates frosted plexiglass panels of jewelry that jut out at angels with 8′ tall laser cut panels showing a pattern representative of each collection.

We also found lots of lights we love. Flos made its NYIGF debut and and showed its gift collection from design superstars like Philippe Starck (D’E-light & Miss K), Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (Piani), Antonio Citterio (Minikelvin Led), Barber & Osgerby (Tab Led T), Konstantin Grcic (May Day), Ron Gilad (Mini Teca), Marcel Wanders (Can Can), Achille Castiglioni (Lampadina) and Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (Gatto Piccolo).

The D’E-Light by starachitect Philippe Starck – an LED task lamp + charging station!

Returning exhibitor Design House Stockholm is celebrating its 20-year Anniversary. The Block Lamp is still one of its best sellers!

The Block Lamp, a classic collection designed by Harri Koskinen, has lit up the design scene since 1996. It became part of MoMA’s permanent collection in 2000.


Which one of these received our Blogger’s Choice Award??? Stay tuned….
