'Tipsy' is a contemporary spin (no pun intended) on the standard whiskey glass that makes it hard to take your eyes off your drink. It can only rest at a seemingly precarious angle, and it engages its user to try and tip it and watch it wobble.

This collection, consisting of five lights, was inspired by the « Eagle » lunar module which took the first men to the Moon in 1969. Woodlabo has reworked and developed part of the spacecraft's fuselage and transformed it into an eagle. The Eagle collection plays on multiplying this form. Orbit, Landing, Moon and Lift Off are combinations of two or three modules and represent the mission's four stages.
So many of the things that we work on are shaped by the light that graces it. The relationship between light, medium, and artist is important—it affects the way we feel about the artifacts we handle. Shift is an exploration of light and color in space. Simply move the track-pad
300 million tons of fabric are thrown away each year in the United States alone. Some of this waste is created from industry, some from by-products like lint. The chair below is a composite material made of dryer lint and concrete.
ETCH is proposing a new method of displaying time that exploits a physical 3D effect. In the digital world, we're used to seeing 7 segment digit displays, graphical engraved or embossed fonts and regular displays and clocks everywhere. We wanted to blend all these common experiences in an unconventional way
