IIDEX 2009

This year's IIDEX didn't have as much traffic as the past few years. I did enjoy a glass of champagne and a cheese platter, along with the spirit of design.

Here are my pic's of interesting retailers and neat exhibits:

Global Lighting one of the biggest manufactures in he lighting trade. They make: wall sconces, hanging pendants, ceiling mounted, floor lamps, and desks lights.

Teknion! How could you go to IIDEX and not see them! Lol one of the biggest in office furniture systems; like desks, panels, seating. You name it!
Here is inside their display. Very clean; forest feeling and not cluttered with minimal seating. Two years ago they launched the marketplace line.

Design Green Toronto was displaying the works of green designers around the city like Evan Bare of 608 Design.

Cubert Chair also available in green. This chair has storage compartments for your blankets and controllers under the seat or in the arms. Check out 608 Design

Another interesting piece at the Design Green Toronto display.

Interesting glass wall motifs...

Boss Design is a UK seating manufacturer for commercial projects.

Very beautiful display! One of my fav's

Another one of my fav's

Interface flooring very popular and known for their carpet tiles.

Weaves Art was there and they always have interesting area rugs. They also throw contest every year for students in the A+D industry to design the graphics for 1 rug.

Cape! How could we forget my friends! They recently bought TUFF-EDGE inc (a table manufacturing company). Doing big things over there!

I stumbled upon a Light Art Installation and took a pic of the process.

Milliken another carpet company. This year they were featuring their new line designed by graphic designer, Todd van der Kurik.

And finally Azure for your latest trends in the design world.
