As mentioned in yesterday’s Valencian Design Showcase post, there are a number of solid satilite exhibitions running alongside ICFF in New York.
Wallpaper* reviews “Straightforward New Finnish Design,” taking place at Chelsea Market (410 W. 16, New York). As to be expected, the designs are function led. Some 50 designers make up the showcase – their wares ranging from lighting to furniture. Housewares also figure into the mix, and in my opinion are some of the strongest pieces on display (at least from what I glean from the slideshow).
Check out a edited selection after the jump.
