Design With Conscience, Artecnica's campaign promoting social and environmental responsibility in design, is a collaboration between foremost designers and artisan communities in underdeveloped nations.
It is design promoting self-sustaining communities, generating global awareness and utilizing humane and earth friendly production.
tranSglass, included in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York, has become one of Artecnica's most desirable products.
Designed by Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje, and created by Guatemalan artisans, the tranSglass collection features one of a kind vessels - from the lidded carafe to a two holed vase. Each piece is unique in size, appearance and color.
Adorning a shelf or a table with an original and unique piece of tranSglass does more than enhance your environment. Your astute design choice aids our environment and has a positive impact in the lives of the artisans who create these stunning and cleverly designed pieces.
We are proud to carry a number of styles from this collection so that we may all play a small part in making this world a better place for everyone.
