With so much going on at ICFF, what with the rows and rows of booths set up with eye candy galore, it's hard not to walk around in a daze. Somehow amidst the hubbub we were able to capture a few images.

  I just had to include this image of the Apple Chair, created by designer Elvira Ziyangirova for Russian design school Artfuture. Each "apple" is made of felt, and adheres to a sack filled with foamed polystyrene. The shape, which offers no back support to speak of, only adds to oddity of the piece.

  I loved this CNNCT_chair by Cincinnati–based industrial design student Jacob Nitz of Amirite, and not just because he hails from my own hometown. He created the piece as his last undergraduate project at DAAP.
