The most promising paths for today’s designer-makers exists in pooling resources, collaborating across traditional boundaries, and finding innovative ways to speak to broader audiences in all their guises.
L’ArcoBaleno is a new and rapidly growing global resource for exploring, discovering, and collecting extraordinary design from around the world. The site mixes a strongly curated marketplace with intelligent, magazine-style content covering innovative and intriguing work across the spectrum of design–from furniture, lighting, crafts, and decorative arts to architecture, travel, fashion, and technology.
After studying Design History at Parsons, Wava Carpenter has worn many hats in support of design culture: teaching design studies, curating exhibitions, overseeing commissions, organising talks, writing articles, and all manner of work. She worked for many years as Curator of Design Miami.
Wava and the L’ArcoBaleno team travel the globe to discover material from the world’s most interesting galleries and makers. They offer fresh insight through diverse content produced in collaboration with today’s most forward-looking and influential curators, collectors, designers, artisans, and nerds. From design masters to emerging talent, they celebrate the people, places, and things that shape the design world, both past and present.
