ICFF: The wonderful world of Artecnica: Part 1

http://www.artecnicainc.com/

First I saw these stunning women running around in black, slinky, witchy apron dresses.
I coveted one; and I wanted to be them.

I saw their Witches' Kitchen, by Studio Tord Boontje.
But was it modern?
Regardless, I walked by, admiring.
(It really is beautiful, and yes, I would love it in my own home.)

Then I backtracked, and discovered their Design With A Conscience project.
"Artecnica’s Design With Conscience campaign infuses social and environmental responsibility into design. Artecnica promotes, directs, and sponsors collaborative exchanges between leading designers and artisan communities to create meaningful design that challenges people to adopt a deeper, more sensitive way of thinking about objects."
(This has actually been blogged about on another blog well, so visit this link to see pictures.)

The Anemone lamp is great, I liked the way it could be configured in many ways and rolled around...

In honor of my friend Justin who I'm sure knows allllllllllllllllll about this already, I am still going to upload my pictures of the sylphs showing off their fantastic WirePod by Joris Laarman!

(Note: They really seem to have a wonderful company culture and having a great time.
It was a discernable difference from dwe-ACHOO - excuse me!- um, another place I had just left that wouldn't even hand me a post card when I admired their curtain designs: "Are you a retailer?" No, I just sell affordable modern house kits and furniture. Does that make me a retailer? They looked at me like I was an idiot. I guess I am... )


The WirePod is "art" that uncoils to stretch into a power pod- with four "arms" available to plug into electrical products as needed.


Geez my office seriously needs this...
