For the past decade, ICFF’s Studio program has allowed emerging designers worldwide to showcase their work at the annual interior design event in New York. This year’s juried competition named 11 winners, hailing from the U.S., Germany, Canada, Turkey, and Spain. Each designer will display one item from their portfolio at the show, which will be held from May 16 to 19 at the Javits Center, in New York, and was also awarded a $1,000 American Express gift card. The competition was hosted in partnership with furniture maker Bernhardt Design. Below, we list this year's winners and their design that was selected for display.
