I discovered Touch Design while trying to track down the origin of this wine glass chandelier which caught my eye at The Future Perfect. Touch design, a two person industrial design consultancy started by Pratt graduates Peter Andrew Valois and Michael Anthony Marra, makes a wide range of disparate products. Their products span the gamut of style, function and material, but are united in a common sense of clever playfulness. For example, Touch has a chair made entirely out of rubber-bands (Rubberbandit), a table which appears to be nothing but a floating table cloth (Ghost), and porcelain tableware which looks like droplets of milk.
Also impressive is the puzzle piece Elbow coffee table, and the Chandelini (Wine glass chandelier, see above). In fact, there is nothing on Touch Design’s website that I don’t covet.
