ICFF 2010 Favorite: Studio Dunn.

 We almost missed Studio Dunn entirely! We started out the afternoon on the opposite end of the show space and by the 5:00 p.m. closing time we were only half way through. Thankfully, we sped up and rushed through the second-half of the exhibits, where we happened upon Studio Dunn.

The New England-based studio was founded by Asher Dunn (a graduate of RISD) and an offshoot of Keeseh Studio, which is a Rhode Island-based commuity woodworking studio. Studio Dunn strives to be environmentally concious by minimizing waste and using solid American hardwoods sourced from sustainable forests. We were immediately struck by the craftmanship that goes into each piece. The shapes are mindful of midcentury Dutch design but ultimately evoke a decidely modern appeal — something we saw across the board at this year’s ICFF.  If accolades are any indication as to a design studio’s industry appeal, Studio Dunn’s trajectory looks promising — this year it won the ICFF Editors Award for Best New Designer.
