Artecnica Designs With Conscience

Large.jpg

Our good friends at LA-based Artecnica sent us some sneak peeks of their new Design With Conscience pieces, which you can see on the floor should you be Javits-izing. Founded in 2002, DWC is a program that manufactures and produces products in accordance with humanitarian and environmentally-friendly principles. Famous designers team with artisans and communities around the world to spread the wealth…and the love.

This year, we’ve got Fernando and Humberto Campana‘s TransNeomatic prototype, using a discarded scooter tire (above), Hella Jongerius‘s Beads & Pieces ceramic collection, and Stephen Burks‘s TaTu coffee table and stool, created with artists in South Africa and Zimbabwe. We also like Tord Boontje‘s Ivy metal etched screen, which is not part of the collection, but you still can enjoy it with a clear conscience.
