A group of designers in Miami recently launched PIE, a company that designs and manufactures a diverse line of furnishings and accessories for the home. An acronym for Project Import Export, PIE uses primarily eco-friendly materials, such as rattan, liana (a vine), bamboo and water hyacinth.
The “Fold 01” at right is made of 100% bamboo. Below, hanging lamps of aluminum (presumably recycled) and mulberry fiber do a nice job of carrying off the “woven” look without being too bohemian. Project Import Export debuted at this year’s CA Boom II and is now working hard to share PIE with the world. Check out the full line at their website.
