The ‘can’ booth as it affectionately came to be known by ICFF attendees and other exhibitors, designed by Jan Habraken. Built out of almost 3000 cans of Campbell’s Tomato, Cream of Mushroom, and Chicken Noodle Soup and donated to City Harvest after the show.
DesignNotes author Michael Surtees said, “…Pretty much the only stand out for me was from Kikkerland. I’ve seen can’s used to create stuff before but this was a nice evolution. Great use of an iconic brand, the booth had a lot of life and at the end of the show nothing will be wasted.” http://designnotes.info/?p=1782
People kept asking if we won the best booth award…we didn’t, I am curious who did…
Habraken and where all his designs come from. Also shown, Alissia Melka-Teichroew and Ilona Huvenaar’s Tree Trunk Stool, Pieter Woudt’s Pixel Puzzle. Billy Shelton of Chicago Architecture Foundation cameo.
Endangered Species erasers by Kikkerland Design. 2% of sales will be donated to helping endangered species through the Center of Biological Diversity.
