ICFF 2007: Autoban & Hale

Autoban - These two got a lot of attention this year. Seyhan Ozdemir and Sefer Caglar are located in Turkey, but they have a deal with De la Espada to manufacture and distribute their furniture, which is good news for both of them. These designs are creative and hotter than De la Espada's, while the all wood construction makes them delicious and something that will grow better with age. Check out the Starfish dining table with the X leg structure above...


Hale - Jonathan Nesci had a beautiful booth that proclaimed his brand loud and clear. A Chicago native, Jonathan's line of shelving, tables, bookends and stools are all made of powder-coated aluminum so that they are light, colorful and strong. Colors can be changed, but the Tidal bookshelf seen here is based on the famous "Homage to the Square" paintings by Josef Albers.
