Monday I went to ICFF at the Javits Center - way out on 11th ave at 35th street. What a gross, weird building. The exhibitors were simlar to those last year- but I did have a few favorite things.
The big paper lamps are always cool.
And in the Japanese design area- I loved this little kit to teach kids table manners. Each bamboo plate and piece of flatware had laser etched the corresponding course. very, very cute.
The seal (although a little creepy) was also very cool. It is a robot designed for places that don't allow pet therapy. It just looks like a stuffed animal- but responds to different types of touch and sounds. its like a pet that doesn't eat or poop! awesome! :)
