Council Celebrates its 5th Consecutive Year at ICFF
Posted: May 16 2011Council is pleased to return to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) this spring. The American contemporary furniture manufacturer will introduce four new pieces, further expanding upon a collection that has come rather quickly to be known for its thoughtful contemporary aesthetic, extraordinary attention to craft, and refreshing contribution to the international design scene. Council will return to booth 1708 at ICFF, which runs from May 14-17 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.
“It’s hard to believe that this will be our fifth time at the Fair,” said designer Derek Chen, Council’s founder, who launched the company in 2007. “In many ways we still feel like a start-up——certainly, we still bring that newcomer energy and enthusiasm to every new collection——but it’s also very satisfying to watch the brand mature in the marketplace. We look forward to showing our new work, and also to being inspired by what we see.”
Council’s collection has included the work of a veritable who’s who of designers from around the world, including Arik Levy, Monica Förster, nendo, and Karim Rashid. In 2011, Council is delighted to introduce new pieces by Mike and Maaike, One & Co, and Jonah Takagi.
