Every time I come to New York for Design Week and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) , I learn so much, meet so many people, and get so energized. This is, of course, the big show, the largest furniture fair outside of Milan , but there are also ancillary events all over town. I toured the show along with TreeHugger managing editor Collin Dunn, in from Portland, looking for the compact, the green, the transformer. But it was a tough year at ICFF; the show seemed smaller and less original than it usually is. It was difficult to pick Best of Show, which I gave to The Wastberg Durapulp Lamp . There certainly was a lot less overtly green. But there was still lots to learn from. Bathroom Manufacturer Kohler Makes Chocolates? For instance, on my first night there I went to the launch party of the Kohler Numi , I mean, who ever heard of a launch party for a toilet? I parodied it here on TreeHugger, but they let me in anyways and I learned that Kohler makes some of the best chocolate I ever tasted. Go figure. Image Credit: Lloyd Alter ...
