[UPDATE – Unfortunately, an essential piece of the prototype sent over from Italy for the workshop got lost at the airport. We must postpone the crowd-crafting session. New dates will be shared soon, so please stay tuned! – More info here]
We are very excited to announce the first sofa-crowdcrafting project in New York: #sofa4manhattan, in partnership with Italian Master Artisan Berto, the Design-Apart producer some of you Architects and Designers have already met during the Design Workshop in January.
As announced, we are now ready for the second part of the project: when the piece of funiture – a sofa designed by a high-class team, here in our loft – will be actually constructed.
We’ll share with you the pleasure of creating the ideal Manhattan sofa which came to fruition at the Design-Apart showroom after a workshop with 2 international and 10 local designers.
The way we will realize the sofa is an experiment in itself, because it will involve whoever feels like trying the experience of crafting a real artisanal handicraft, fully made by hand, together with the Italian Master Artisans flying in from Italy for this workshop.
Don’t miss the chance to participate in the crowd-crafting session to make the sofa with Berto and Design-Apart teams, this coming Saturday March 15th, from 10 am to 6 pm… just don’t forget to RSVP.
Come along and craft with us: you’ll enjoy the magic of the hand-making an Italian design product, here in New York!
