ICFF 2005


The ICFF returns to NYC for the 17th time with the best in furniture design. Over 500 exhibitors from 29 countries are showing of their latest product and furniture lines, some with an eco-conscious. Check out Treehugger's top picks.


Grow is an ingenious concept by Samuel Cabot Cochran from Pratt Insitute. The modular panel system consists of solar panels and piezo-electric crystals, capturing energy produced by wind and light. The panel's are rented or leased to maintain control over its life cycle.


Here There Design's 100% sustainable lamps, first covered in March by Treehugger. The lamps are constructed with abaca fiber, stainles steel and polished concrete are built to last.


Modernlink which Treehugger first covered in October has a new line of furnishings all of which are made with bamboo and stainless steel.


Xeno Objects, also previously covered by Treehugger, was showing off their line of bamboo chairs and tables. Each piece is hand crafted using concentric bamboo rings and an eco-friendly (containing 60% fewer VOCs) UV-protected seal.


Adapt Design, also previously covered by Treehugger, takes an innovative approach with bamboo by exploiting its strength and manipulating it into a curvaceous form with its Spring Chair.
