With its recycled origins and sleek, fluid design, tranSglass® conveys a positive attitude towards the environment.With the help of Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization providing assistance to artisans worldwide, Artecnica collaborated with Guatemalan craftsmen to bring Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje's designs to the market. Combining old-world craftsmanship and sophisticated design, each tranSglass® vessel is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece. tranSglass® is included in the permanent collection of MoMA New York. (Due to the recycled and handcrafted nature, products will vary slightly in size, appearance and color. Colors are pre-assorted in shades of green, clear and brown by the artisans only.)
Artecnica strives to enchant, inspire and transform by elevating everyday objects through design that combines the personal expression of art with uniquely applied technology.
Artecnica grew from a desire to captivate the eye and change perception. As they began exploring new materials and techniques alongside designers, merchants and craftsmen from around the globe, their focus evolved to include an intense commitment to design in all its applications and implications. The result was a deeper awareness of Artecnica's positive impact through design and the subsequent creation of a formalized program, Design with Conscience®.
Design with Conscience® advocates and creates design that considers issues of environmental sustainability and responsible manufacturing. Artecnica collaborate with internationally recognized designers and artisan communities in developing countries to produce unique handcrafted objects. Products are often made with recycled materials and transported in easy-ship flat packages to help reduce our carbon footprint.
Artecnica partners with nonprofits like Aid to Artisans to explore ways of bringing new life to both indigenous craft and modern design. Design with Conscience® supports shared work and profit across borders, cultures, races, and religions. With design as the catalyst, it's an opportunity to enchant, inspire and transform lives on a global level.
