BlogTour NYC is just a short week away and Modenus is proud to announce its media partnership with Wanted Design. We look forward to spending an afternoon of innovative design and good conversation with this creative group.Wanted Design best describes their vision, “WantedDesign offers participants and visitors alike a unique and dynamic experience and serves as a meeting point for designers, manufacturers, distributors, craftsmen, students, design institutions, the press and all design lovers.” Sounds a lot like Modenus itself doesn’t it? We cannot wait to explore unique installations, products, design and to finally!!! meet Wanted Design founders Claire Pijoulat and Odile Hainaut.
Azambourg Studio is bound to be a highlight during Wanted Design NYC with their unique pieces conveying “the true art of applied arts” , combining design, creativity and craftsmanship. Designer and inventor Francois Azambourg focuses his design on “simplicity and lightness”. The designer recently launched his collection, a compilation of of unique materials, experimentation, structure and technique over a period of 25 years. Can’t wait to see more.
Another exhibitor sure to draw a crowd is Moroso. Moroso is an Italian company founded over 60 years ago currently under the direction of Patrizia Moroso. We’ve said it before and will say it again, the Italians may just do it better. Moroso approaches furniture design with a sense of understanding for the consumer and creativity collaborating with well known designers and artists to reach new heights in design. The premise of design is understanding that the modern family enjoys different hobbies and forms of relaxation like watching t.v., reading or playing games on a tablet to name a few examples. Moroso creates furniture to accommodate everyone’s needs, comfortably.
Modern, well manufactured pieces is what designer and co-founder of Labrica, Ricardo Velasquez is all about. Labrica is a family owned manufacturing company that specializes in contemporary furniture. Labrica strives to provide solutions to any space while working with artisans and designers to achieve quality design. Definitely a must see at during Wanted.
We love a good story and we certainly love the exposure of good design from local artisans. The Carrot Concept captures both. The concept was born out of the need for a solution to the lack of “local and business opportunities to support El Salvador’s growing design community.” Not only did the group envision a stronger and more exposed community, they needed physical space to exhibit their vision and design. In 2012, this talented group of Salvadoran and Latin American architectural practices worked together to create The Carrot Concept by pooling resources among various designers to create a mass presence to compete in the international market and encourage stronger local design and community. “The idea was simple: to succeed in the global market it was essential that we join forces and work together.”The group built a space for their concept in El Salvador as a home and center to exhibit their design and culture. We’re curious to learn more from this vivacious group during BlogTour NYC.
Please stay tuned for more previews of Wanted Design next week and be sure to follow us on #blogTourNYC on Twitter for all the latest during the tour.
