During the Manila FAME show, Cebu’s CebuNext (formerly CebuX) exhibit had a special setting composed of around eight exhibitors, if I remember correctly. Special thanks to CFIF’s Mischelle Ogdoc for being very accommodating, introducing the team to their designers and exhibitors.
CebuNext was impressive! Their collection of furniture and décor are nothing but world-class. No wonder many of their members are suppliers for many top-of-the-line furniture brands abroad. Their designs are fresh and innovative, combining sleek modern forms with the rich texture of natural indigenous materials, maintaining that Filipino signature in their designs.
Among the exhibitors, here are our favorites:
Accessoria with its appealing mix of indigenous materials.
Nature seemed to be the inspiration for the organic designs of the lamps from Okiberry.
Colorful outdoor furniture, that also come in a smaller scale for kids, are carried by Lauralee.
Sleek and swanky pieces from young designer, Vito Selma, fuse together strong geometric figures with bold colors and natural materials.
His pieces are now available in Manila through Kish in LRI Plaza.
For those of you who want to see more of Cebu’s finest designs, CebuNext will have their tradeshow in Cebu early next year, March 5-8, 2010.
