Another Great Company from ICFF

Congrats to the ICFF for an incredible few days showcasing the best of furniture design. Just to cap off the week’s events, here’s an introduction to another cool company called Graypants. Here’s a video intro…

Graypants is led by Seth Grizzle and Jonathan Junker, who Christine Gachot (our VP of Design Development for Andre Balazs Properties) met about 2 years ago when all they had was a simple prototype of a cardboard light fixture. Last weekend she ran into them at ICFF, this time carrying a bevy of fixtures, including variations on the prototype she first saw. If you enjoyed the video above, check out their other one "What is Graypants"?

Their work utilizes recycled and found materials, notably corrugated cardboard and plywood, to an unusually soft and energetic effect. On top of that they are some fun individuals. Joining Dirk Wynants from Extremis, Shawn Hausman and several other friends and family, Mr. Grizzle and Mr. Junker wrapped up ICFF with The Standard design team in our Beirgarten for some pretzels and beer.

Cheers to a fun week!
