Koo Rocks: ICFF Round Up
It’s been two weeks since the close of ICFF and our heads are still spinning. The unveiling went swimmingly, with the LUNAR team just as delighted with the reactions to our piece as the show goers were with Koo. We were tickled to see the smiles creep onto the faces of attendees as they saw the transformation from bassinet to rocker, and were thrilled to hear over and over “I want one!”
When we had a spare moment to sneak away from the booth, these were some of the things we took in:
Some nice debuts. Council has a nice breadth for their 4 young years, including the new Swarm piece from Mike+Maaike.
Several rocking pieces, from rocking lawn lounger to a rocking bed. Is this some kind of recession/post-recession return to the womb?
Molo is nicely expanding their unique collection of honeycomb cardboard furniture into lighting. We loved their cardboard house and the lamps displayed as clouds around it. Playful and attractive!
Loved the Tom Dixon booth/ mini factory. Hats off to the effort of a well established designer pushing for local/ DIY manufacturing. Being able to see the assembly process, better understand the manufacturing process and even buy a product on the spot was quite new for a professional trade-show. But maybe I’m just a process geek!
Anne Kyyro Quinn’s Bespoke acoustic wall panels: very crafty and stunning felt wall panels. Simple idea, beautiful result. Would love some of them in our upcoming new office!
In general, lots of raw and crafty materials, many indigenous process and designer featured with very high quality and unique pieces.
We could not be happier with our first run at ICFF. Looking forward to next year! And since getting back to San Francisco, Koo has been getting overwhelmingly positive response. Bloggers, retailers and mommies everywhere are singing the praise of multifunctional baby gear that actually looks great.
Here’s what folks are saying:
