Now shaping its 30th edition, North America’s platform of global design continues its 13-year partnership with Bernhardt Design to bring the next generation of emerging talent to the forefront through the juried ICFF Studio competition.


“The 2017 selection process was very difficult for ICFF and the Bernhardt Design team” said Kevin O’Keefe, ICFF Event Director. “We received hundreds of submissions from around the world from so many very talented and innovative designers. It was quite the challenge to arrive at the final selection of really outstanding creations.”


To enter the competition, a designer must be working in the industry for less than five years and have a working prototype that is not in commercial production. All submissions are reviewed by established industry professionals with entries judged on design aesthetics, the ability to be economically mass produced, marketability and commercial viability.
