A conceptually innovative container bowl, the transNeomatic Bowl Collection is a collection of carefully designed accent pieces which exhibit superb craftsmanship. Hand crafted by skilled artisans in Vietnam, these bowls were created from a repurposed scooter tire and natural wicker, and are thoroughly steam-cleaned and finished in an eco-friendly sealant. Packaged in a reusable drawstring tote, these bowls also come with a handwoven hemp cover for an extra unique touch.
Through Vietnamese non-profit organization Craft Link, Artecnica collaborated with Hai Tai rattan weavers and Hmong women weavers to create each piece. Disadvantaged Vietnamese youths were also enlisted to assemble the totes, providing them with artisan training and a framework by which they could establish sustainable livelihoods. A true < collaboration, transNeomatic is an environmentally aware and socially conscious piece from concept to execution, transforming an aesthetic vision into an economically viable solution for Vietnam's artisan communities.

Artecnica's mission is to elevate the purpose and value of everyday objects by using design to enchant, inspire and transform through the powerful tools of art and technology. Enchant - the unusual aesthetics of the object visually captivate the eye of the viewer; Inspire - an emotional attachment to the object develops while experiencing awe and stimulation, filling the heart; and Transform - excited and involved, the viewer's intellectual analysis evolves attitudes toward living environments, and ultimately life itself, intertwining the brain. Art represents the most personal expression of our design language, technology our unique application of materials, fabrication methods and techniques.
Artecnica's initial focus was on visual excitement, artistic expression and use of exciting shapes and colors. The "eye" was king. As Artecnica grew, the reward of pure visual excitement was joined by intense commitment to design. They then started traveling the world, where they began exploring and sharing experiences. Specialized vendors were selected and collaborations with designers, merchants and craftsmen had begun. This allowed Artecnica to explore new materials experimentally and spontaneously.
