ICFF 2014 Recap: Organic Modernism

 

ICFF 2014 Recap: Organic Modernism - Rethink Design Studio

 

Another ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) is in the books and we had a blast meeting with new and familiar designers alike. With dozens of aisles of furniture, lighting, and textiles from all over the world, it seems hard to believe that you would find a common theme between most. However, as we trekked the “design globe” that is the famed Jacob K Javits Center, we realized that a common thread does, in fact, connect the hundreds of exhibitors: organic modernism.

Clean, smooth lines with round forms and bulbous shapes, this year’s curation took a departure from the strong lines of modern design and went back to its (organic) roots. Take a look at a few of our favorite examples of how designers are abandoning the straight edge and embracing the curve:
