TransNeomatic is a conceptually innovative container bowl crafted from a repurposed scooter tire and natural wicker. Each tire is thoroughly steam-cleaned and finished in an eco-friendly sealant. TransNeomatic comes with an optional handwoven hemp cover that slips over its rubber base. Each piece is packaged in a reusable drawstring tote.
Great as a fruit bowl, catch-all container for keys, mobiles, etc or towels or as a magazine holder.
TransNeomatic is designed by Estudio Campana and handcrafted by skilled artisans from rural Vietnam. 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 Design w/Conscience® collaboration, TransNeomatic is an environmentally aware and socially conscious design from concept to execution, transforming an aesthetic vision into an economically viable solution for Vietnam's artisan communities.
