Gift Show

We had a great time and the gift show!  Can't wait to share all of our finds with you.  The picture above is of a line that we use to carry at tribeca, Nervous Systems.  The new collection, cell, cycle, was "inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes.  We created interactive software to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex structure.  The final design is built up layer by layer in a rigid, durable nylon plastic using Selective Laser Sintering, a kind of 3D printing.  These forms would be impossible to create by traditional manufacturing methods."

This a new line, inspired by a gift from a friend, Carolina by Carol Workinger. She uses brass, nylon cording, and leather to make her lovely but rugged creations.  Needless to say that we each placed a personal order here.   

We also did a little personal shopping for the store - check out the petal light.  You may be seeing them in the dressing rooms sometime soon!  Can't wait for the next show!
