EARonic iPhone Cases



 

CollabCubed started as an art and design blog, but has since expanded into this shop featuring the EARonic iPhone cases and previous collaboration, SATees: Big Words for Little Kids.  Designed by Daniela Gilsanz – a cube root of CollabCubed – the EARonic iPhone cases are EARefutably EAResistible. Daniela first came up with the idea last fall when applying to art schools. She was getting a portfolio together and while sketching some ears in her sketchbook (one of the prompts from a school) the initial EARonic mockup and portfolio piece came to be. 

 

It’s a mother/daughters thing. The three of us share a passion for all things design, art, fashion, and pop culture related. Debbie is a graphic designer in NYC and the voice of the blog. Daniela is a first year industrial design student at RISD and designer of the super-fab EARonic iPhone cases. Emma focuses on the sciences in her second year at Brown, as well as having a keen eye for photography and a weakness for fashion and design blogs. This is where we share our links and finds. One of the ways we stay connected. Welcome to our CollabCubed.

AWATEEF project by KNOCKOUTDESIGN



 

Awateef is a collaborative project between Knockoutdesign designers and Palestinian craftswomen of Kfar Manda village in Galilee. The designed series of objects gives a new interpretation of the meeting between the high precision industrial technology and the impeccable beauty and charm of the handcraft

Kfar Manda is a village with one of the highest percentage of unemployment in Israel, especially among women, thus Sindyanna HaGalil (www.sindyanna.com) a Jewish – Arab non-profit organization, led by women striving for social change, opened there a weaving center to revive the traditional craft of rattan weaving and give working opportunities to the local women.

Women at Sindyanna weave traditional objects baskets according to local tradition; it is not simple to market these baskets outside of Israel due to the competition of very inexpensive baskets that are woven in the Far East and Africa.

Awateef (Arabic female name means feelings) - Awateef Musa, was our weaving teacher in Kfar Manda and mostly with her we developed the series of products that is called to honour her impact, excitement, passion and patience.
