Sneak Peek at ICFF Miami Products


The first-annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair Miami will soon be upon us. Labeled North America’s platform for global design, the event will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center from Oct. 5-6.

ICFF Miami will play host to more than 3,000 interior designers, architects, retailers, distributors, facility managers, developers and manufacturers. The event will feature a variety of kitchen and bath, outdoor furniture, textiles, wall covering, flooring, lighting and furniture exhibitors in 25,000 square feet, and we wanted to showcase a few of those.

Louis Poulsen will be re-launching Lauritzen’s Radiohus pendant (above) under the name VL45 Radiohus Pendant. The Radiohus Pendant became Louis Poulsen’s best-selling lamp when it was first launched 80 years ago.


Madeli USA will feature its newest collections – Cube, Metro (shown above), Soho, Retro and Urban – which have more drawer space and more color, handle and feet options.

Julien’s Fira fireclay sink collection (below) has the ability to turn into a workstation with American black walnut accessories. It features thin walls and a 10-in-deep bowl.


The Chef Center system (below) from Franke features two versatile, anti-microbial compartments that can serve as a composter, wine bucket, storage bin, etc. It is available with an array of custom accessories, including a cutting board, colander, grid, mobile drainer board, strainer basket and Franke’s exclusive Roller Mat.


Designer Doorware will showcase its new Monte Timber Collection (below), which consists of the Timber Quad, Timber Club and Timber Lanex door levers. The collection is made from solid brass and environmentally friendly sourced hardwood and is available in a choice of raw or five exterior/interior wood stains (oil, oak, teak, walnut and charcoal).

Lit metal and clay

One of the pleasures of attending ICFF is seeing all of the interesting decorative lighting products on display. It’s especially gratifying when you happen upon a company with which you’re unfamiliar, such as lightexture, which made its debut with three collections: the Iris Series, the Claylight Series; and the Steamlight Series.

The patented involution Iris pendant features a series of overlapping metal leaves that can be manipulated into different forms. The fixture’s name refers to the two “irises” or apertures at its center that open and close in opposition to each other. In other words, when one opens, the other closes, and vice versa. Iris is available in stainless steel, brass and copper in two diameters (that are adjustable): 7 1/2 in. and 14 in.

Claylight is a line of ceramic light fixtures designed with ceramic artist Sharan Elran. Made of clay and porcelain, the fixtures, when lit, produce a variety of patterns and thus environments via different perforations in the diffusers. Designed for use with xenon lamps, the collection includes sconces, desk and floor fixtures, as well as pendants in symmetrical and asymmetrical egg-like shapes

and Boomerang 4, a chandelier/mobile with four ceramic shades suspended from two Australian brigalow wood boomerangs.
