The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) has been North America's premier design fair since 1989. This year, the landmark show returns to the Javits Center in NYC May 19-21 with a more curated, accessible, and interactive approach. To commemorate its 35th anniversary, the fair celebrates design with exciting new initiatives, thought-provoking programming, and spectacular spaces. 250+ global exhibitors will come together to display the best-in-class contemporary furniture, accessories, lighting, textiles, and more. Known for its global exposure, networking opportunities, and access to industry knowledge, ICFF connects design professionals, architects, interior designers, and design enthusiasts. The 2024 edition will include more spaces to explore, lounge, network, and converse. New this year includes Bespoke x AD Pro, a section that will showcase the art of making and celebrate the skill and expertise of high-end artisans; The Library x Phaidon which will host activations for the new release Designed for Life: The World’s Best Product Designers and a curated library; OFS x ROOM which will launch a podcast with the leading voices in global design discussing the ideas reshaping how we live and work recorded live from the show floor; and dedicated areas for complementary products such as Materials, Outdoor Living, and Kitchen & Bath. Wanted, formerly WantedDesign Manhattan, has quickly become the destination for discovering new talent around the world and the place to engage with a diverse professional network and initiate new collaborations. This year, Wanted will continue to support the next generation of design professionals through their continued programs: Look Book, Launch Pad, the Schools Showcase, the Design Schools Workshop and the Wanted Lounge x Lumens. At the heart of the fair, the newest iteration of The Crossroads exhibition will focus on sustainability. In a collaboration between ICFF, David Rockwell, Rockwell Group, and curator Pei-Ru Keh, this edition will spotlight the way designers seek to preserve long-honored craft traditions, together with how they push the boundaries of circularity to consciously re-think the legitimacy of material use.
