The New York International Gift Fair (August 18-22) is a strange and wonderful experience. After navigating bizarre and badly designed products there are glimpses of what I consider examples of truly great design. I am always inspired. In the next few weeks I will be posting photographs of various products that caught my interest for one reason or another. The following photos are of the LA based company ARTECNICA which collaborates with established and emerging international designers to create inspiring decorative objects for the living environment.
