On the last day before the ICFF floor was opened to the public, bloggers rushed to cover the exhibits before they were swarmed by design-curious housewives pushing strollers. MoCoLoco hit the Wrong Store, where the party was actually outside on the sidewalk, Core 77 has photos of the Nat Sherman appetizers, more parties Saturday and Sunday and a sum up of the ICFF highlights, which opens with the awesome line “ICFF, as we all know, is a lot like IKEA.” Shuddddder.
Metropolis pushed a bunch of its content live, with Jade Chang and David Sokol on the floor. Sokol’s trolling for trends like Graphic Content and Material Marriages. Check out the photos from Day 1 and Day 2. The magazine’s “Rethinking Energy” conference is taking place today.
Chang’s doing these awesome little mini interviews named WeSeeYou@ICFF where she talks to people like the Artecnica founders, and where we learn not only what Yves is wearing but what kind of skateboard we can buy from Paul Smith so we can roll together forever.
