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.
Designed by: Emma Woffenden & Tord Boontje
Order with Confidence:
Artecnica’s mission is to elevate the purpose and value of everyday objects by using design to enchant, inspire and transform through the powerful tools of art and technology. Enchant – the unusual aesthetics of the object visually captivate the eye of the viewer; Inspire – an emotional attachment to the object develops while experiencing awe and stimulation, filling the heart; and Transform – excited and involved, the viewer’s intellectual analysis evolves attitudes toward living environments, and ultimately life itself, intertwining the brain. Art represents the most personal expression of our design language, technology our unique application of materials, fabrication methods and techniques.
Artecnica’s initial focus was on visual excitement, artistic expression and use of exciting shapes and colors. The “eye” was king. As Artecnica grew, the reward of pure visual excitement was joined by intense commitment to design. They then started traveling the world, where they began exploring and sharing experiences. Specialized vendors were selected and collaborations with designers, merchants and craftsmen had begun. This allowed Artecnica to explore new materials experimentally and spontaneously.
