Yesterday Free Time Industries [FTI] and ARM ARCH Inc moved into a new studio - we will be shacking up with MUSA design to form a design co-op! We still have some setting up to do, but we have the salon put together and Katie and I got to work. In the future, we have plans to turn the upstairs into a high-end/ local-made focused design store [Think moss or 10 Corso Como]. We will sell our products, products we make with MUSA design, and art and products from other Seattle designers/artists. It is all very exciting: 2617 5th Ave, Seattle, WA, 98141.
Today we are working on the Spring 2010 line for FTI. All of the pieces will be made of water-jet cut metals, with Physical Vapor Deposition coatings (think of 1990's mirrored+colored glasses). We are thinking of calling the line something like "Take me to Zardoz" or "Super Futurism"... let us know if you have any other ideas! Take a look at our "inspiration board" and the rad picture of Sean Connery taken from the 1974 film "Zardoz" to get the general feeling we aspire for. We have decided we will make about three necklaces, a bolo tie, two earrings, one ring, and one bracelet. We are bringing down the scope of pieces based on what was learned from the "Laser Nature"; line it's fun to design, but a pain to assemble so many different things when you are doing the assembling!
