“Berlin’s streets foster potential for what is new, perhaps more than any other place today.” According to the exhibit’s organizers, there’s no better time to gather the city’s best designers under one roof. Azure is a media sponsor of the show, which runs until June 3 (before continuing on to Toronto) and is one of the marquee headliners in the NoHo Design District, an offsite circuit running concurrently with ICFF.
Mayer H. is himself a German design star with an iconoclast approach – Azure has covered his sinuous Dupli Casa, and will also delve into his waffle-like parasol in Seville, in our upcoming July/August issue. The like-minded designers he’s invited to show their latest creations include Jerszy Seymour, who presents his Workshop chair; Antje Kalus, who makes sumptuous clothing with 3-D knitting; Judith Seng, who displays her colourful boxes; and Studio Hausen, which introduces its flat-pack tubular steel chair.
If you can’t make it to New York before the show wraps, make sure to check it out when it comes to Toronto, where it will be hosted by (the original) Relative Space & Floorworks from June 13 to July 8.
