This past week end was held the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC. A few RISD students jumped in the bus or drove to NY in order to attend this event for which RISD had reserved tickets. The fair is one of the most important venue in the world of furniture design, as well as lighting design, and introduces new technologies to the public. It is a professional venue that attracts designers of all kinds and all countries. Cardboard built furniture room, reused materials furniture, LED lighting fixtures were on display.

RISD, but also DIS (Danish Institute for Study abroad), a partner of RISD for the IntAR summer program in Copenhagen, Denmark, had a stand there to showcase the work of students in furniture design.
