Michael Sodeau
Modus
Noughts and Crosses stools
Sodeau's three- or four-legged oak stools, available in two different heights for either bar or dining table use, have a powder-coated steel O or X that functions as a foot rest – hence the name Noughts and Crosses. The British designer, who also had work on show for Sienave and Anything, curated the Designjunction space. He divided it up using velcro Stickingsticks, a modular partition system designed by Kawamura Ganjavian, that looked like a gargantuan game of pick-a-stick.

Lindsey Adams Adelman
Roll & Hill
Knotty Bubbles
Complementing the British brands at Designjunction was the innovative US lighting manufacturer Roll & Hill, a company launched last year by Brooklyn-based designer Jason Miller. Adelman's ten-piece chandelier (also available as a smaller pendant), a series of lights made from hand-blown glass "bubbles" wrapped with knotted
rope and suspended from boat clips, had a castaway charm.

Simen Aarseth
Benchmark
Puck side tables
These side tables with elegant tapering tripod legs, available in oak and walnut, have timber or lacquered tops and were among our highlights of the fair. Benchmark spotted the tables at last year's 100% Design in London, where Aarseth was exhibiting at 100% Norway. At the Icon/Designjunction party, attended by almost 2,000 guests, someone mistook one of the tables for a stool. It turns out that they are definitely not for sitting on.

Jasper Conran
Wedgwood
Mosaic and Baroque tableware
The British fashion designer, who began his collaboration with Wedgwood in 2001, has created two new ranges of fine bone china tableware for the company. Mosaic is a striking op-art-inspired collection in blue and white (pictured) and Baroque features a silhouette influenced by the swooping curves of baroque arches and medallions.
