presented at this year’s ICFF new york show floor is ‘GRO’, developed by industrial design student alex haggar. exploring the concept of the diverse and changing environments of individuals, the pieces hope to give a fresh insight into adaptable furniture targeted at young professionals. made up of only 12 parts, the collection consists of four different sized tables and a chair with a material palette of birch plywood, aluminum, cork, 3D printed stainless steel, all of which is completed with powder coated finish.

needing only a limited number of parts, the system promotes easy assembly and re-configuration, meanwhile utilizing quality materials to promote product longevity. characterized by the use of cork seen throughout the pieces, the lightweight and renewable material adds texture to the overall design. furthermore, the collection deviates from looking modular and instead, displays a clean, simple aesthetic allowing for the pieces to be visually cohesive in any configuration.
