Building a more sustainable future using the power of design through a global network of building professionals, Architecture for Humanity brings design, construction, and development services to communities in need. This was a natural organization for Telios to collaborate with!
Dwell on Design is America’s largest modern design event and there was a lot to see. Here are a few of our favorites:
This year Dwell on Design hosted an artist-in-residence Tanya Aguiniga. An LA based furniture designer/maker and activist, Aguiniga created and ran an audience-interactive atelier for creating move-in kits for the formerly homeless and recently housed people of downtown LA.
Attendees were encouraged to participate in knitting blankets, making tables, stools and artwork for these kits which will be donated to People Assisting the Homeless (PATH). It was a great project and we enjoyed participating.
We couldn’t resist the eco-amp from Eco-Made. It is a passive amplifier that slides onto the end of an iphone to increase sound without any external power. Made in LA with green electricity, from 100% recycled fibers, no toxic adhesives andprinted with soy based ink, it is smart simple design and works great!
Modern-Fabrics has a great line of reclaimed designer textiles. Great for use in your next upholstery project.
Orta’s self-watering seed-starters are an easy way to start a kitchen garden.
We were especially delighted to see so many presentations on sustainable design at the event. Great job Dwell!
