If you’re a fan of the hippest architecture, most innovative furniture, and home accessory design, visiting the International Contemporary Furniture Fair at NYC’s Jacob K. Javits Center each year is like going to heaven. From across the globe, venerable manufacturers, dreamers and design students gather, to discover what the world’s design community has created this year, what newly invented materials have made never-before- possible designs a reality, and to show off their own creations to the market.

For the third year, Dish visited the ICFF, and once again was impressed with the ingenuity and beauty of what we saw. Following are 10 trendsetting products that prove that in 2004 home design can be both whimsical and practical. Dying to own what you see pictured here? The bad news is that most items probably will not be available in your hometown, but the good news is you can contact the manufacturers directly. Just go to the enclosed web addresses to contact them directly. They’ll be glad to hear from you!

1) Frank Gehry Furniture Collection for Heller

Designed by Frank Gehry, one of the world’s best known architects, this seven piece collection includes a sofa, easy chair, bench, coffee table/sitting area, and 3 different sized cubes made in silver resin. The pieces convey the architect’s famous deconstructivist aesthetic, and can be used inside or out. Faceted shapes, sleek surfaces and flowing lines create forms that are simultaneously complex and elegantly simple. “It’s not based on the bottom line,” says Allan Heller of Heller, the producer of Gehry’s line. “It’s the whole process of creating things that are appealing to a certain audience, and making sure we can distribute them around the world.”

The Frank Gehry Collection ranges from $200-$1200 depending upon the piece. For more information about the collection go to / Issue 41 - September 1180
