ICFF 2009: Gray is the new Green

For the first time I had a chance to attend the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York City. This worldwide wonder of design disciplines was truly innovative and inspirational.

Our favorite fair find comes from Seattle based graypants - the designers/inventors Seth and Johnathan are architects that desire to make a difference through design - instilling new spirit into salvaged pieces of corrugated cardboard, a scrap light’s lively play on light and shadow invigorates once lifeless materials.

Graypants scrap light shades are made entirely from salvaged corrugated cardboard. All lights are handmade - giving each a varied shape and size.

Graypants scrap lights can be purchased on their site and come in three different styles: DISK, HIVE and BELL.
