ICFF 2011 – Wood Peg furniture system by Studio Gorm

Studio Gorm (John Arndt & Wonhee Jeong) released Wood Peg, a furniture system takes its inspiration from diverse areas, Shaker furniture, tradition Korean hung table, and the lowly broom handle, and mixes them into an exciting new product. The system, which stores neatly on the wall mounted peg rail, includes table tops, legs, lamp parts, stool tops, can all be assembled without tools to fit almost any need. Studio Gorm used solid Douglas Fir, Hemlock, Oak, Ash & Walnut Hickory to give Wood Peg variety in color without the need for additional coatings.

ICFF 2011 — Ilex Lounge Chair & Side Tables by Elemental Living

I really love the clean lines of the Ilex Lounge Chair & Side Table by Denver, Colorado based studio Elemental Living. The chair, which is really comfortable, and the side tables mix sturdy powder coated steel legs (in a huge selection of colors) and plywood to create a modern look with a hint of industrial inspiration. Jonathan Coppin & Scott Dergance were able to reference the furniture greats, van der Roh, Saarinen, Nelson, and Noguch, and mix their styles together, along with the duo’s own, to create entirely new and dynamic pieces.

ICFF 2011 – STAGG Dining Table by Hooker & Co.

I love the STAGG Dining Table by Brooklyn based Hooker & Co. All of their furniture is made using recycled and reclaimed materials. The STAGG Dining Table uses reclaimed barn maple that has be beautifully eaten away by termites over its previous life creating a wonderful pattern of holes and grooves. The brightly colored base was machined and welded out of reclaimed steel and powder coated red.

ICFF 2011 — Heiress Collection by Studio Dunn

The new Heiress Collection of the Tessie Chair, Doris Dining Table and Alletta Mirror, was released at ICFF this year by the Pawtucket, Rhode Island based design firm Studio Dunn. The team of Asher Dunn, Andrew Mau & Emily Woratzeck have designed some really amazing hand-crafted furniture in the past but I believe the Heiress Collection to be their crowning glory.

The clean lines mixed with beautiful hard-wood and stellar craftsmanship all come together into a collection that I can only hope will grow. The proportions of all the elements fit perfectly together with the slight angles and the elegant detail of the relieved edges that expose the strong grains in the wood.
