Scott Henderson, IDSA, head of New York-based design studio Scott Henderson Inc., has chosen New England for his inspiration in creating the US Partner Country Exhibit at Ambiente 2015, the leading international trade fair for products for the table, kitchen and housewares, gift and decorative articles, and interior design concepts and furnishing accessories. Ambiente 2015 will take place February 13 – 17 in Frankfurt, Germany.
For the Exhibit, Henderson is showcasing a selection of household products featuring unique and innovative design set against the picturesque backdrop of a New England seascape. He is mixing the products with items commonly associate with New England, such as oversized Adirondack chairs, plant-like tables and classic US mailboxes.
“Designers today think very globally. However, it is fascinating to study the subtle differences that naturally occur in a designer’s work from one country to the next,” said Henderson. “When I think of the United States, I think about the beautiful natural landscapes that are everywhere, and how each one is very different from the next based on region. The concept for this Partner Country Exhibit is a New England seaside, with the authentic and truly American Adirondack Chairs facing the serenity of the sea.”
