“The Edge of New Possibilities”
PRESENTING: KEYNOTE speaker Nolen Niu established his custom furniture design and fabrication firm Nolen Niu, Inc. in 2005. His first collection was introduced at the 2006 Salone Satellite Milan Furniture Fair. He has been showing his collection for the past 12 years at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC, including 2017. With operations set up in California this makes him one of the few American furniture designers with the ability to completely manufacture his upholstery and cabinetry entirely in America. Somehow he also found time to be a season judge on Spike TV’s show “Framework” which was the first ever furniture design competition series. YES he is the DesignEDGE keynote speaker!
