Wescover Lounge Debuts At ICFF 2022
In May, ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) returned to NY. ICFF is North America’s leading global platform for contemporary furnishing design. With its emphasis on original and sustainable design, the ICFF connects more than ICFF and the co-located WantedDesign Manhattan bring together over 350 established and emerging design brands of furniture, lighting, textiles, seating, carpet and flooring, wall coverings, outdoor furniture, materials, kitchen and bath and accessories from around the world.
For the event, Wescover collaborated with Creators Fyrn, SEED Design, HACHI Collection, Model No and Jill Malek to create a serene environment where attendees would relax and take a break from the hectic showfloor. The space also served as a hub for networking, learning and inspiration throughout the show. Daily presentations featured Wescover Creators, partners, designers and industry influencers.
Not only did we get the chance to show off our creators, but we had the privilege of hosting talks on Maintaining Your Authentic Voice, Planet-First Design, and How Norwegian Brands are Navigating Sustainability and Design. All of these talks were inspiring, and rejuvenated everyone who was in attendance.
Our featured Creator Sponsors for this event were Fyrn, SEED Design, HACHI Collections, Model No, and Jill Malek. Our creators, partners, and designers are truly the backbone of Wescover, and greatly influence the community that we’ve fostered and built since our founding. The Wescover Lounge made its mark on ICFF.
