1) NOLEN NIU

Why not add a little color to your house? Debuting at ICFF this year was the Evo Sofa, part of the Evo Collection from Nolen Niu. “With the Evo collection, I explored the possibilities of creating three separate zones for seating which are the seat, lumbar, and backrest,” explains Nolen. The three zones move independently from each other and take their shape from your body by distributing the weight across each zone. The hexagonal like shape keeps the piece feeling lightweight, while providing the optimal angles for each zone, all without compromising the shape and form factor of the design. The large 2-inch gap simplifies cleaning with the use of a narrow nozzle vacuum attachment and leaves other items in plain view and easily retrieved. The Evo Sofa costs $3,800-$5,200 depending on fabric. For more information about Evo, contact Nolen Niu at www.nolenniu.com or call 310.709.0955

2) TODO DESIGN

In this innovative creation from Todo Design, we find extra storage—not in a chest or bookcase, but in a chair. In this design, called the Grace Duo, the back of each seat allows for storage of books and newspapers, while the seating provides personal space for contemplation, or conversation. Todo’s furniture design explores “figure in space, space in figure duality”. The resulting expression in material, spatial, and philosophical terms raises awareness of our surroundings, our interactions within it and their impact on us. Add a cushion for comfort and sit down with a good book…or a good friend. ($2,500) Grace Duo is available directly through Todo Design. For more information go to www.tododesign.com or call 212.228.0654.

3) OSO INDUSTRIES

Who would have thought concrete could be so beautiful? Oso Industries specializes in finding new uses for concrete by making gorgeous, unique furniture. At this year’s ICFF, they displayed the Parallel Roller table, a gorgeous combination of concrete and walnut. Designed as a curved parallelogram, the “Parallel Roller” features offset drawers, providing convenient storage space, and locking, recessed casters, making this table easy to move around (after all, concrete is heavy). The Parallel Roller is available through the Oso Industries website and is priced at $1450. For more information about how concrete is used to make works of art, visit www.osoindustries.com or call 347.365.0389.
