designer alissia melka-teichroew of amt design (click here for a tour of alissia’s home) is debuting several pieces at this year’s icff. alissia’s lonely hangers (above) were derived from cup handles that were broken off their cups. they can be used in living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, anywhere. the lonely hangers will be shown at designboom goes ny local, details here.
i love alissia’s new “jointed jewelery”. this work in progress was inspired by a simple ball joint- but created with advanced selective laster sintering, which makes it possible to create a ball joint connection in one piece. you can visit alissia’s jewelry in person at 400 years later- CITE goes dutch.
last but least for alissia is a new series of textiles called taped table linen (which will be shown at the 400 Years Later exhibit + NY local/designboom. these linens feature a pattern drawn using tape, which mimics, “the old-school way of patterning a woven damask”. alissia’s collection will include tea towels, a table cloth and napkins, and will be shown at icff in not only these grey shades, but in bright colors.
