The British European Design Group (BEDG) will mark its 20th straight year of exhibiting at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). In 1994, with its first contingent on the show floor of New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the BEDG announced its arrival as a force on the global design scene. In the two decades since, BEDG participants have won numerous ICFF Editors Awards.
BEDG founder Karin-Beate Phillips says, “Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the BEDG at the ICFF is a very happy occasion. In the last two decades, the market for global design has grown exponentially. With our annual exhibit at the ICFF, we have played a significant role in extending the reach of international design across North America.”
GLM senior vice president Kevin O’Keefe says, “In two decades of exhibiting at the ICFF, Karin-Beate Phillips and the participating companies of the BEDG contingent have been instrumental in cementing the ICFF’s position as North America’s primary event for global contemporary design. We have grown together over the years, and look forward to doing so as the market for great modern products continues to expand in new directions in the U.S. and around the world.”
