Following last yearâ€™s debut of the Botanist Line, this year Orange 22, Dario Antonioniâ€™s LA-based design studio, will reveal the Botanist â€œBlank Canvasâ€ Series at the ICFF and weâ€™re pleased to bring you the exclusive sneak preview. Eight collaborators were tasked with putting their own design mark on the simple shapes made from single sheets of aluminum. The diverse line-up of creatives includes the iconic Milton Glaser (I heart NY) to the ubiquitous Karim Rashid (most recently of the cone-shaped Dirt Devil fame). (Rashidâ€™s design pictured above right, Glaserâ€™s below left. But, these innovators will be doing more than just putting their own artful spin on the simple, organic-inspired forms. Each will choose a charity of their choice and Orange 22 will match their profits for donation. It is a unique collaboration of both altruism and creativity.
