The fab Factory 20
I was scoping out WeAre1976 the other day, because frankly I too am 1976, and they are awesome. And they covered the most amazing shop - Factory 20 - over which I have since been obsessing. Factory 20 is an art and design collective specializing, as far as I can tell, in 20th century industrial design pieces they sell in a shop in Virginia and online. Think old work benches from a garment district factory. . . and it is (they are) genius. The pieces are so rich with history and still so. . . usable. Amazing what some thought and good material can do. Here are a few faves. Enjoy!
