Ho.Mi. New York Returns to International Contemporary Furniture Fair
March 2, 2016,
NEW YORK—Ho.Mi. New York, the satellite showcase of the Italian lifestyle fair HoMi, will return to the ICFF for the second time this year. The 12,000-square-foot high-design pavilion will be in an expanded space at the fair, scheduled for May 14-17.
Ho.Mi. New York will highlight Italian furniture, lighting, wall coverings, carpets, flooring, kitchen and bath, accessories and more from more than 50 Italian brands, including Alessi, Michelangelo Design, Domus Design Collection and Ego Italiano.
“In Milan, like in New York, we present an event that relates Italian style, where Italian hospitality and international style come together to inspire international exhibitors and buyers,” said Cristian Preiata, exhibition director of Ho.Mi. “This partnership with ICFF, one of the most prestigious international showcases, confirms that Ho.Mi. has now become an international ambassador for Italian taste and savoir-faire in situations where the excellence of the ‘Made in Italy’ industry has a starring role.”
The expanded space at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center will include the Italian Luxury Interiors project. Organized in partnership with Artex—the Center for Artistic Craftsmanship and Tradition of Tuscany, ICE, Confartigianato Imprese and CAN—the space recreates the spirit and style of Italian interiors.
“Our audience of more than 33,000 architects, interior designers, developers and luxury retailers anticipate an even more exciting presentation of the best in Italian designs,” said Kevin O’Keefe, event director of ICFF. Last year, ICFF entered into a long-term agreement with Fiera Milano, HoMi’s organizer and host of prestigious worldwide events for the interior design and lifestyle marketplaces, to bring the lifestyle trade exhibition to New York.
