Market Profile - tranSglass Collection

Artecnica, a cutting edge company fusing the gap between technology and everyday objects, teamed with designers Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje to create this glorious collection of vases, carafes and glasses. If you didn't notice, they're made from recycled bottles! With the help of Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization, Artecnica has collaborated with Guatemalan craftsmen to create these pieces of art. Due to the nature of the material, you will see slight color and shape variations. tranSglass is now included in the permanent collection of MoMA New York - pure design with a conscience!

tranSglass Collection $40 and up - through www.idChicago.com (they say due to the high demand, shipping takes approx. 1-2 weeks)
