designsouvenirs -
bring loved ones at home a contemporary gift from
NY's ICFF - the US's largest design event.

as part of the cultural program of the ICFF,
designboom hosted a group exhibition of international
design professionals, some that you are already
acquainted with and some others that deserve to be
noticed.

participating designers sold ‘design-originals’
(limited series and/or prototypes of their latest works).
ICFF visitors had the opportunity to purchase
intelligent, useful and quirky items priced from a range
of USD 10 to USD 100.

from metal to ceramics, glass to fabrics, to recycled
materials, the close to 100 beautiful objects on sale
achieved a good compromise between creativity
and production.

in this initiative, the designers were personally
presenting their wares, so the - designboom ICFF mart 05 -
was an unprecedented opportunity to meet the young
avant-garde and became familiar with their body of work.
