Call for Entries: International Contemporary Furniture Fair

The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and Bernhardt Design announce a call for entries for product prototypes.

This is an invitation for submissions of product prototypes from designers working on any and all of the product categories exhibited at the ICFF: furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath.

The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) will be held 14-17 May 2011 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Objective

Submit prototypes of the following types of products: furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath.

Prizes

Winners will be assisted in making connections with potential manufacturers, retailers, and the press. Past year’s participants secured contracts with manufacturers; received a lot of media coverage; and, in some instances, started their own companies.

Selected designers win a spot to display their prototypes on the ICFF exhibition floor at ICFF Studio, a group area with individual booths designed by TRUCK Product Architecture.

Rules

  • Participants are required to be available at their booth at all times during the ICFF.
  • Arrangements and expenses for shipping, travel, and hotel are the responsibility of each winner.

How to enter?

For consideration, submit:

  • a completed entry form;
  • photo prints of up to three product prototypes for possible exhibition at the ICFF; and,
  • supporting information including a biography.

Entry forms can also be submitted online through ICFF’s official website.
