November 25, 2008. American furniture manufacturer Bernhardt Design has once again put out a call for entries to its ICFF Studio, which will take place from May 16 – 19, 2009 at the New York Jacob Javitz Center. Bernhardt is inviting the submission of product prototypes for furniture (including outdoor), seating, carpet, flooring, lighting, materials, wallcoverings, accessories, textiles and kitchen and bath designs by December 15, 2008.
There is no fee to submit an entry and designers who are selected will win space in a TRUCK Product Architecture-designed fair booth to display their prototype(s) on the floor of the ICFF (with storage, signage and a 1,000-watt lighting ?fixture included).
One of the benefits for ICFF Studio designers aside from the general exposure is Bernhard’s assistance in making connections with potential manufacturers, retailers and press.
Past year’s participants have included young talents such as Todd Bracher Studio, Cate & Nelson Design and Viable London. Winners will be announced January 12, 2009.
