Daily Five: Day two – more to adore at ICFF

If you didn’t see yesterday’s preview of ICFF you missed out on some spectacular lights, beds, chairs and more. You can find it here. But don’t go now, have a look at today’s fantastic five first.

One of the people we are excited about running into is Katja Behre the creative genius behind Elli Popp  a British brand of wallpapers, ceramics  and fabrics which is gathering a cult following amongst lovers of its quirky, retro style. Her new Victorian Medley paper is shown above and, like all of her work, can be customised to the clients requirements in just about any way you can imagine. You really need to see this paper close up, and this is your chance! We are also hoping that she will bring along some of the work featuring delicate, painstaking illustrations of British Birds by Scottish Rock and Roll Legend Edwyn Collins, there is a remarkable story there which we promise to tell you soon!

Malene B Custom Handmade Carpets
Booth: 2038
Malene B is a Brooklyn, based African American carpet designer who is responsible for some very thoughtful and beautiful work.  Her unique carpets, inspired by her international travels, boldly interpret cultural icons. Papunya, for example, shown above, is inspired by the Indigenous Australian Aboriginal “Dot” Art, Papunya.

I think I may have seen this worn as a hat. MIUU is one of many playful designs by Spanish lighting specialists Alturo Alvarez, a firm which has an impressive track record of social and environmental responsibility. Positive proof that doing the right thing can go hand in hand with flair and fun.
Flux folding chair
Flux
Booth: 1216
It is more than possible that Dutch firm Flux will arrive with their exhibit tucked under their arms. Or maybe they will just post it to themselves. Their folding chair weighs 10.6 lbs, can support 352 lbs, apparently takes an ‘average’ person 10 seconds to fold and is delivered in an envelope. A very big envelope, it is true, but it is still a chair in an envelope. What’s more, a six foot stack of those envelopes would contain 126 chairs. Are we the only people who find these sorts of things interesting?
Studiomold book wallpaper

We’ve never been big fans of fake books and always feel faintly depressed when we see them. This, however, is something else, vintage bookshelf wallpaper from English design consultancy Studio Mold. Suddenly the miserably and pointlessly fake becomes witty and fun. These very people also make, amongst other things a cowhide mouse mat and a chair with a seat made out of old tennis balls. Irresistible, aren’t they?

Another preview tomorrow!
