Bow Ties + Green Houses: Announcing a New Kickstarter Gift Opportunity!Jan 17, 2013 | Collaborators No comments yet
We have a little over two weeks left in our Kickstarter campaign, and while we are over 60% to our fund-raising goal and feeling good about the progress, we’re interested in encouraging more participation. On that note, we’re announcing an exciting collaboration with a long-time supporter of Emergent Structures, Adrian Perez, and the design firm Barbarus, in offering a new gift opportunity!
Several years ago, as a graduate student in the SCAD Design for Sustainability program, Adrian took the idea of transforming society’s perception of discarded building materials to a new level when he designed a bow tie from a discarded stud that was reclaimed from one of Emergent’s earliest deconstructions. That’s right: a bow tie made of a piece of wood that was put into a house built in 1943, and deconstructed in 2010: how’s that for innovative re-use!
Adrian’s early bow ties were featured in Emergent Structures’ collaborative fundraiser with Habitat for Humanity (scroll down to the second entry in this link)
Since then, Barbarus—Rafael Ribeiro, Pimprae Hiranprueck, Tommie Fullmer, and Adrian—has developed a stunning product line of limited edition products from these early concepts. For a more refined surface, Barbarus has shifted from reclaimed studs to river reclaimed wood.
We are thrilled to be providing two opportunities to receive one of Barbarus’ limited edition bow ties as a gift for funding our Kickstarter campaign! There are only two of these available through this offer, and along with the bow tie, you’ll receive the rest of the $500 gift package.
The new BOW TIE PLUS package is now available for $800.00!
Scott Boylston, president of Emergent Structures, is a proud owner of one of these bowties, and his daughters love it!
