ICFF 2012: Plank by Eric Pfeiffer and Council

Oakland-based designer Eric Pfeiffer has been exhibiting annually at ICFF since 1997 and this year he's launching a series of outdoor pieces in collaboration with San Francisco's Council. According to Pfeiffer, the line is a take on the classic Adirondack chairs and owes some debt to mid-century design; however, it's distinctly contemporary in its restrained, minimalist features—qualities we love here at Dwell. The pieces are manufactured right here in the United States, and feature a new type of engineered wood.

Hotel Endemico in Silvestre, Mexico

Encuentro Guadalupe , Mexico

In recent years, Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe, only an hour and a half from the San Diego airport and 40 minutes from Ensenada, has emerged as Mexico’s wine country. In order to showcase the best that this region has to offer, The founders of Antiresorts™ decided to develop a property in the area that "combines amazing dry weather, rich new wines, incredible seafood and produce, impressive light, and human talent." And so, Encuentro Guadalupe came to be. The project, whose moniker suggests that it is a "wild reserve" and "native to its environment," is slated to open this July. It features two main components: Vinícola Encuentro, the winery and restaurant, and Encuentro Resguardo Silvestre, twenty high-end bungalows, which offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the outdoors while still enjoying modern comforts.
