Very nice keyboard by Hacoa.  Comfortable to the touch and definitely provides a warmth that you don’t get from plastic.  I would love a wooden keyboard!

“spoon?” @ ICFF

“spoon?” by FLASK (for Yamauchi Spring Mfg. inc.).  Stainless steel silhouette of a mixing spoon.  I like the notch detail so that you can anchor it on the side of your cup.  Fun idea.

bai-shibori mini lamps @ ICFF

“Shibori” is a method of tie dye.  This technique results in these crinkled patterns in the fabric when untied.  These bai-shibori (sik) lamps by Katayama Bunzaburo Shoten are really beautiful and fun.  Sooo light and airy.  I want one!

“misty garden” @ ICFF

misty garden humidifier

“Misty Garden” by Japanese company, Mikuni, (designer Miyuki Yoshida) is an environmentally friendly humidifier made of nonwoven fabric that when soaked with water from the tray, allows water to evaporate and naturally humidify the air.  Very nice!

These white trees with hankies tied to them distracted me from looking at the furniture at the inside norway exhibit.  Fun trees!

FUZ (company by Josh Jakus) had some really fun products at the show.  All the products shown are made from recycled materials and/or excess material waste from factories (wool felt, wood, cork, rubber, etc).  Very sustainable!  I got a black rubber napkin hug as a takeaway!  It was my favorite takeaway from the show.  All their products can be purchased on the FUZ site.  Pleased to hear that FUZ is a Josh Jakus company.  I have one of his UM bags made from recycled industrial felt and think it’s a really great design.

cubic electric switchplates


Really loved Design Glut (Kegan Fisher and Liz Kinnmarkt) at the show this year!  Their stuff is really creative and useful as well as nicely designed.  “Egg pants” are sooo cute and keeps your eggs from falling over.  The “cubic electric switchplates” are fun for  your light switches and electric outlets and play tricks on your eyes.  “Hookmaker” is a playful way to store and hang small things you have around.  The “Dow Jones Hanky” is a hankerchief with the graph of the Dow’s last 5 years.  You can also have the hankies custom embroidered with your personal portfolio too.  All these can be purchased on their site.

johnny swing @ ICFF

johnny swing lamp

This very large chandelier-like light fixutre made of glass jars really caught my eye when I passed.  Johnny Swing designed this creative light fixture along with these pig and teddy bear stuffed animals with a dollar bill print.  (I really like the pig!)  The bowl the pig is sitting in is also by him and is constructed of welded nickels!  Also on show was a lounge chair made of welded quarters.

egg lights
designer unknown…forget to see who it was by, sorry!

Saw a theme in some of the light fixtures I saw.  The one that most intrigues me the most is the final image whose pieces are more egg-shaped than sperical, but the are made of felt.  I thought they were packing peanuts at first.  Unfortunately I didnt’ get the name of who designed it.

Molo makes these cellular structure furniture and partition pieces that are expandable, flexible, and stackable.  Saw them at ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) today (and last year too).  The white pieces are constructed of Tyvek and the brown is of fire retardant kraft paper.  They can be illuminated internally with LEDs to give a glowing effect.  Molo also makes the glassware you see above sitting in the window.
