Actually, the student designs steal the show every year at ICFF, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair held annually in New York. This year was not quite up to Pratt's spectacular exhibit from last year, but was close.
I think Parsons the New School for Design
was the best this year. Their work was presented on giant carts that they call Watertables, designed last fall as convertible dining tables and work surfaces.
