ICFF: After Hours - Finnish Design
On Sunday night I also visited the Valvomo show, an exhibition of Finnish design, which was set-up in a converted fish locker in the Meatpacking District. There were a number of impressive pieces on display, including the 'OKA' coatrack by Teppo Asikainen and the 'Globlow Big Floor Lamp' by designers Vesa Hinkola, Markus Nevalainen and Rane Vaskivuori. The light actually gently deflates and inflates as it is switched off and on.
