Our founder, Susan, spent a whirlwind few days in New York City recently for the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. “It was a really good show with lots to see and consider,” she enthused, hinting at the introduction of new makers to our showroom in the coming months…
In the meantime, here are a few favourite ICFF moments from Hollace Cluny-carried lines to get you dreaming of great designs for future projects. Email or call us to learn more!
Pascale Girardin’s Latest Sculptures & Limited Edition Lighting Collab
Montreal-based artist Pascale Girardin unveiled the new Figura II collection (shown above) at ICFF, the latest instalment in her series of handsome totemic figures. Girardin also presented a magnificent lighting collaboration with fellow Montreal artist and product designer, Maud Beauchamp. The DUNES collection is described as a celebration and exploration of “organic forms found on the earth’s surface whose shape and size are constantly shifting due to fluctuating wind patterns.” Evocative and graceful, this work brings the beauty of nature into the home.
Skram Embraces the Power of Colour
Fans of Skram will be delighted to hear that the studio will offer pieces including the luxe Wishbone Desk (shown above) in a variety of Benjamin Moore colour options. Where will you add an eye-popping piece?
Bec Brittain’s Take on Lindsey Adelman’s Bubble Chandelier
Perhaps one of the wittiest elements of ICFF, The Knockoff Show revealed lighting designer Bec Brittain’s iteration of Lindsey Adelman’s “ubiquitous” Bubble Chandelier. Brittain says that she was inspired to take this project on because of a personal connection to Adelman’s practice. “My time working with Lindsey was my introduction to lighting, and my hands were very much involved while she was developing the Branching Bubble system – it was a formative time and now is very nostalgic,” Brittain said in a press release. “In this way the piece is an homage to Lindsey and a nod to my past.”
Simon Johns’ New Tables & Colourway for the Ledge Console
Simon Johns of Quebec presented two new stunning table designs, the Future Fossils Table and the Diamond Side Table – both boasting wonderfully novel silhouettes; and the Portals collection of wall-mounted work (shown above) includes pieces that can be reflective or illuminating. Johns also launched a Bone White colourway of his much-loved Ledge Console (shown above), ideal for introducing lightness and intrigue into a room.
