The International Contemporary Furntiture Fair (ICFF), North America’s leading platform for contemporary furnishing design wrapped up last week, and on its penultimate day came the results of its annual ICFF Editors Awards. Recognizing the best and most innovative approaches to design among a roster of global exhibitors, the winners are recognized as some of the best in the industry.
Nearly 400 exhibitors participated in the show this year across both ICFF and WantedDesign Manhattan, and from them 13 winners were named by a panel of judges from the following publications: AD Pro, Azure, Darc Magazine, Dezeen, Gray Magazine, Hospitality Design, IFDM, Interior Design, Kitchen + Bath Business, Luxe Interiors + Design, Surface and The Architect’s Newspaper.
“We are honored to continue the tradition of the Editors Awards, which seek out the best in creativity and innovative thinking in the industry and are decided by influential editors from top design publications. This year’s winners all reflect the Fair’s commitment to original and sustainable design,” said Phil Robinson, ICFF show director.
