Design Visit: ICFF

May 20, 2008

From Julie and Francesca:

We forgot to mention the free-flowing champagne (Moet & Chandon) and the music (Nosi) at the ICFF opening day. Or the chefs simmering risotto on the Italian aisle, or the chocolate sculptures of chairs being passed out. Or the fact that we saw Parker Posey pawing through stacks of fabric samples. More interesting, actually, were the electronic innovations.

Below: From Vancouver–based Bocci, the 22 Series electrical plug, which is inset into the wall and skim-coated over, leaving just the circular plug area. No sketchy plastic cover required. Just pure plug-in. Available at Arkitektura in Situ in San Francisco.
