ICFF Sighting.

We had an opportunity to walk this year's ICFF show and found some new things that were quite impressive. But there was one particular sighting that got us really excited. In 2011, the design duo Salto & Sigsgaard won a design competition under the auspices of the Danish Ministry of Culture to design the furniture for one of the permanent chambers at the United Nations headquarters here in New York, The Trusteeship Council Chamber also referred to as the Finn Juhl Chamber. In connection with this, Onecollection has developed, produced, and delivered a completely new unique and beautiful chair named ”Council Chair” designed by Kasper Salto and Thomas Sigsgaard and it made it's "public" debut at ICFF (the grand opening of the TCC, was held in the UN on April 25th 2013). The chairs pass on the baton from Finn Juhl’s iconic design heritage in a sculptural and pleasant direction, which merges shape, color and natural materials. The chairs are a construction of moulded 3D veneer in oak or walnut, upholstered with leather or fabric. The swivel base is cast in aluminium. A handsome design that we would love to see in context at the UN, but in the meantime, we'll just keep staring at these photos...
