I know, it’s almost December and ICFF was when we didn’t have to wear a sweater, a coat, a scarf and when the umbrella stayed at home, too. This is, as usually when the title is ‘IMAGE DROP’, a very random selection of images. But this time it starts with adornment for a door handle.
It’s hard to find exceptional door handles. I managed to find some of them at ICFF. This door handle ( more on their website) is by architecture firm Olson Kundig Architects, Tom Kundig Collection – Hardware at its best! Top image is a photograph of the card the other image is from the fair.

Bumped into them twice during the 4 days – first at Fort Standard‘s party at the Bowery Hotel and than at the MoMa. Charlie Rudgard and Lee Broom – usually we see each other randomly around Shoreditch in London

Dirk van der Kooij accidentally received the award for Body of work – after the ceremony he swapped it with the grey haired person who got Best New Designer. Well, in such a short time, he did produce a wide range of products, but that doesn’t justify the term ‘body of work’ yet.
I spotted a classic: 50s hand & foot paper weight by Carl Auboeck at ICFF
Arena bowls made from concrete by Austrian designer Klemens Schillinger at the Designboom mart at ICFF. It reminds me of an ancient greek panathenaic stadium.

Poster by David Shrigley at Here & There the first major event of Field and NYC’s Various Projects. The collaboration stocked some carefully selected goods at at the Lower East Side store Project No. 8.
One of the other goods were these marble dumbbells. Marble might be not a surprising material choice anymore, but here it works for me beautifully.

I am publishing this images a 2nd time. Before I posted it together with the Drawn Interview with Jonah Takegi – it’s a good example of good contemporary design. Again – well done, Oscar Diaz! Get yourself one here.

A trashy but cosy dinner at a Mexican restaurant somewhere in Lower Manhattan: Dirk van der Kooij, Sam Grawe, Leon Ransmeier, Pauline Deltour, Maria Jeglinska, Tiffany Lambert, Livia Lauber etc..
What happens after the picture?
