Accent on Design
Totem Design Group is pleased to show several exciting products at the New York Gift Fair on August 19, 2000. The designs advance Totem's mission to spread the appeal of contemporary design through education and by making the work of promising young designers and architects available and affordable.
Dutch Design Scene
Totem traveled to Amsterdam after the Milan show to see the latest from Holland's top designers. Droog, Pastoe, Artifort, and Zero Desegno were all featured at the Dutch Design Center.
G7 New York
Totem has teamed up with Surface Magazine and Bombay Sapphire to challenge the notion that good design and the meaning of "modern" must necessarily be dictated by European designers and manufacturers. Coming straight from an off-site showing during the Salone Internationale del Mobile in Milan 2000, G7, comprised of seven American upstarts, now present their latest work together for a second time during the ICFF in New York. Offering an alternative design paradigm to the one dominant at the large fairs, G7 proposes to steal some thunder away from the old standards in furniture and industrial design.

International Contemporary Furniture Fair
Upholding the standard of extraordinary performance, the 12th edition of the annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), held May 20-23 at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center firmly established itself as the ultimate market. The expanded base of international exhibitors fueled a highly-charged four-day comprehensive compendium of programs, exhibits and features that drew a record-breaking number of qualified attendees. More than 15,000 attendees viewed the Fair, a solid 11 percent increase over the 1999 edition of the ICFF.
100% Design
Most trade fairs offer a bewildering mix of the good, the bad and the ugly, with emphasis on the latter. 100% Design, held in London October 5-8, though, has higher aspirations. Spanning a broad spectrum of furniture, furnishings and accessories, the four-day event feels like an upmarket department store.
Cooper Hewitt DJ Series Walker Art Center Exhibition
Showcasing David Design, Karim Rashid, Umbra, Heller, and Kartell. " The home show examines the intersection of domestic and contemporary life. Presented in four parts, the exhibition opens with two innovative Walker projects from the 1940s: a partial recreation of Idea House II and an update of the Everyday Art Gallery, which surveys the uses of plastics in today's household products, new design from Skandinavia, and inventive functional ceramics.
Salon Internazionale del Mobile
This year's Milanese furniture trade-fair, Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano, marked the 38th of what has become a highlight event for the design industry on an international level. Totem was there to check out the new furniture and products from the world's most innovative designers and manufacturers.
