TreeHugger visits New York during Design Week, catching the International Contemporary Furniture Fair,(ICFF) Wanted Design, and other exhibits and activities.
Every time I cover ICFF, I ask people I know what they think is the Best of Show. It is often something that I have not even looked at closely, or that had much impact on me at all. I asked Dave Pinter of PSFK and he said "no question, the weaver, he is the real deal."
I went back to look more closely and think he might be right.
He was a representative of The African and African-Caribbean Design Diaspora, which "Promote a greater awareness amongst the British public of the creative talent of the African and African-Caribbean diaspora in the UK." They are part of the usual British invasion that takes over a corner of ICFF.
