Asahikawa Furniture Fair 2008

In anticipation of the Asahikawa Furniture Fair 2008, taking place this weekend in Hokkaido (GMAP), I thought I would take a look back at some of the awesomeness that came out of the IFDA (International Furniture Design Competition Asahikawa) 2 months ago. There were some very impressive pieces by furniture designers around the world.

My favorite was this exquisite bench by Korean national Sehwa Bae, appropriately titled “Meditation.”

Other memorable entries included the avant-gardish bench, “Barca,” by Jacob Joergensen

And this cool modernist desk that I would like dearly to replace my current desk, “Bureau,” by Martin Holzapfel.
