Let’s get to know the firms from San Francisco that are going to make presence at Maison et Objet Paris 2015.
A unique collection of occasional tables, lamps and home accessories, featuring serving trays and boxes using exotic wood inlays. Pacific Connections was founded with the objective to provide the highest quality lacquer finished home accessories and furniture products to our valued customers.
Pacific Connections owns their own production facility allowing them to produce custom product and provide proprietary product for those special customers. The company began in 1994 and has grown to include customers worldwide.
All products are hand-crafted, with multiple steps, along with meticulous care, to provide the owners of the products years of enjoyment.
Designer Anna Rabinowicz launched her first home collection for RabLabs in 2002, creating objects inspired by nature which fuse ancient, precious materials with cutting-edge design. She uses a luxurious palette of materials, layering semiprecious gems including agate and crystal with the finishing touches of pure gold and sterling silver.
Anna has a long history of looking at nature for inspiration. Having designed such intricate objects as prosthetic knees and devices for cardiac surgery, she brings her experience and understanding of biology and nature to the design of elegant objects for the home. Working with skilled artisans in the United States and Brazil, her hand-crafted designs provide a much needed natural component to both modern and traditional interiors.
Inspiration for the designs come from many things: The shapes are inspired by organic forms in nature and objects found in travels around the world. The colors are inspired by delicious translucent popsicles, candies, and jelly beans.
The pieces in the collection are designed and hand sculpted by Tina Frey in San Francisco, California. Sculpting starts with an idea that is cohesive with the rest of the collection. When the clay design is completed, hand-made molds are created for each object.
The molds are used to cast each item individually by hand in small batches by color. Slight color variations between batches contribute to the beauty and uniqueness of each piece.
After the pieces are cast and removed from the mold, they are hand sanded. They are truly made with care. In this way, we can ensure the quality and integrity of each piece.
