Inspired by an Italian grotto (well, the word is Italian, after all ), the Grotto Sauna is a feat of old-world craftsmanship and new-world sustainability made possible by cutting-edge software and fabrication technology. Designed by Partisans, the exterior is built from charred cedar prepared using a traditional Japanese method, balanced by the curved interior which has a nod to Austen Powers.
Brooklyn based jewelry designer Erin Considine mixes raw textures to create pieces of jewelry that are at once rough and soft. Natural fibers such as solk and cotton are hand dyed and combine with polished brass in these made to order pieces.
