ICFF continues its 14-year partnership with Bernhardt Design to bring the next generation of emerging talent to the forefront through the juried ICFF Studio competition.

Entries are now open for ICFF Studio 2019!

Up-and-coming designers and new talents are invited to submit their unique concepts and innovative designs for evaluation by a jury of some of the industry’s top professionals. 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.

The finalists and their work are presented to the design industry in a special exhibition at ICFF held in May, 2019 at the Jacob K. Javits Center.

All submissions are reviewed by established industry professionals through a highly competitive process. Designs are judged on aesthetics, the ability to be economically mass produced, marketability, and commercial viability.

We receive entries from across North America and throughout the world that continually blow us away for their thoughtfulness, creativity and technique.” said Coleman Gutshall, Director of Global Strategy for Bernhardt Design. “ICFF Studio helps propel many of these exciting new designers to international acclaim and rewarding careers.”

The ICFF Studio features designers with less than five years of industry experience and working prototypes not in commercial production. ICFF Studio participants are selected through a highly competitive process where designs were judged on aesthetics, the ability to be mass produced, and commercial viability.
