FOJ (Friends of Joby) – Rewarded at International Contemporary Furniture Fair

By | delightful design, FOJ, Friends of Joby, Office | No Comments

Last month the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) which seeks to be a global summit of what’s best and next in design took place in New York City. Capping off the event of fabulous and innovative design was the ICFF Editors Award. This year the ICFF proclaimed panel of the “hippest and most in-the-know U.S. and international editors” included;  Arlene Hirst, Anniina Koivu of Abitare, Jessica Johnson of Azure, Stefano Casciani of Domus, Sam Grawe of Dwell, Gilda Bojardi of Interni, Chantal Hamaide of Intramuros, Susan S. Szenasy of Metropolis, Benjamin Kempton of Wallpaper*.

We were thrilled to see some of our closest friends in the design community take home top honors. It doesn’t hurt that two of them in particular have been integral to making our new office space so amazing. Last year, the brains and skill behind our great white table; Council Design, took home top prize for furniture design. This year, Joby friend and designer of the wonderful orange lights that illuminate our space, Peter Stathis won for the lighting category.

Congrats!

Joby Blog is Back – Creactives Everywhere Celebrate

Hello Fellow Creactives* (yep that’s you!),

Spring has arrived here in sunny San Francisco and it seems like the appropriate time to spring the blog back to life. At the risk of extending the metaphor too far, we also have lots of new stuff going on around here. We recently moved to a sparkling new office space (see photo below) and I am now here to keep you informed about all things Joby, interesting happenings and hopefully not too random musings.

So to give you a better sense of who I am, these are a few of my favorite things (trust me, you should be grateful, you can’t hear me sing).

A whole lot of books
