Beads & Pieces, a Design With Conscience project, is a four-piece ceramic collection designed by Hella Jongerius. Artisans located in the primary coca leaf-growing region of Peru handcraft the collection. with the help of Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization that provides practical assistance to artisans worldwide, Artecnica offers an alternative economic reality to the people of this dangerous and oppressed area. With its black ceramic embellished with delicate pink beading, Beads & Pieces is classic Jongerius. Ceramic floral bouquets and wooden beads add to the artful juxtaposition of elements. Beads & Pieces' handcrafted and socially responsible origins are apparent in its design. The ceramists' workmanship is seen in the graceful curves of the black ceramic, a traditional Peruvian pottery technique. Some motifs from the indigenous Shipibo tribe are also incorporated into the beading.Dimensions:
As Artecnica has continued to grow, the reward of pure visual excitement has been joined by their intense commitment to design. Teaming up with some of the world's leading designers has helped Artecnica to establish itself as a driving force for design objects for the home.
As Artecnica began questioning their values, scopes and means, they also reevaluated their materials, production processes and their utilization of human resources. They decided to make a shift toward more environmentally friendly and sustainable materials and it was through this deep awareness of global impact that inspired a formalized program known as "Design With Conscience". Founded in 2002, Design With Conscience is Artecnicaâ€™s campaign which infuses social and environmental responsibility into design. Artecnica promotes, directs, and sponsors collaborative exchanges between leading designers and artisan communities to create meaningful design that challenges people to adopt a deeper, more sensitive way of thinking about objects.
