Bernhart Design adds three new collections ahead of ICFF, NeoCon

NEW YORK — Bernhardt Design is set to debut its latest collections at the International Contemporary Furnishings Fair (ICFF), with an official launch at NeoCon on June 19. The new releases include Community Textiles by Nana Boateng, ICE Tables by Daniel Germani and Friends, a modular sofa collection by Noe Duchaufour Lawrance and Luca Nichetto.

Community Textiles is the first interior textiles collection by renowned menswear designer Nana Boateng. This collection features cotton, linen, wool and leather, showcasing patterns inspired by Boateng’s personal experiences and reflecting his tailoring skills.

Jerry Helling, president and creative director of Bernhardt Design, noted that his company has “wanted to work with Nana for many years. Terry Crews introduced us about 10 years ago, and I was immediately drawn to his energy, attention to detail and passion for design. I told him I loved his jacket, and he took it off and gave it to me on the spot. He literally gave me the clothes off his back.”

Ice Tables, created by Daniel Germani, consists of three occasional tables made from hand-blown glass.

“Working with glass is magical,” said Germani. “The heat of the ovens, the energy of the makers, the “dance” of the many people assisting during the process, and the beauty they create every time the molten glass is blown in a form, is pure bliss. It is a perfectly imperfect process where the art of the maestro is represented in every unique piece.”

The Ice Collection includes tables offered in three sizes and three different colors. The smallest table, which measures 13-by-19 inches, has an oblong cantilevered top, and the round tables are 21 inches and 28 inches in diameter. Color options available include cobalt blue, amber and smoke.

Friends, a collaborative effort between designers Noe Duchaufour Lawrance and Luca Nichetto, presents a modular sofa collection. This collection harmonizes geometric and organic styles, embodying the design philosophies of both creators.

“Working with Noe and Luca individually over the years has been such an honor,” said Helling. “Moreover, having them combine their talent is a special gift that has produced a wonderful result.”

Duchaufour Lawrance added, “Jerry and I share a design journey spanning 17 years. We have contemplated a collaborative project for quite some time now. When Luca’s name entered the conversation, a natural alignment occurred.”
