International Contemporary Furniture Fair
New York City
Jennifer Carpenter has designed and coordinated the production of the annual ICFF Studio, the Bernhardt Design- sponsored design incubator, since 2008. The project showcases emerging talent in furniture and product design and helps to link ideas with large scale production.
For ICFF 2012, Jennifer Carpenter Architect developed an inexpensive, demountable, re-usable bookstore for the ICFF Bookstore and Bar, a popular feature of this work renowned contemporary design event. Our design uses stock lengths of 2 x 4 lumber, painted in 27 shades, and simple dowel connections to create a striking pause point for visitors to this busy trade show.
For ICFF 2011 we designed a newsstand for the show’s international sponsors for maximum exposure and minimum budget. Each of the eight publication’s booths is constructed of cork-laminated wood planks that provide extensive pin-up display and work space in a small footprint. Openings between the plans keep views open.
