D.A.R. Proyectos



Design studio D.A.R. Proyectos reimagines craft traditions and use of local materials. Focusing on social innovation-based design, D.A.R. partners with local indigenous craft communities to redefine value in the approach to handmade objects. In this video, see how they have created their ‘Weaving the Light’ collection which is a series of lamps whose structure inherently glows from the textile itself. The lamps, consisting of electroluminescent (EL) wire and traditional Andean crochet weaving juxtaposes state of the art technology with traditional indigenous techniques.
