Mr. Glaser's career paved the way for design and illustration to be intelligent and to serve causes that have a social impact. It is under this premise that Mr. Glaser created 'Epigram' for Botanist, a series of playful furniture pieces that are both classic and innovative. Water-jet technology is used on a recyclable aluminum sheet to cutout phrases coined by the artist, then bent into three different sizes -End table, Cocktail table and Bench- with each size featuring a unique phrase.
Besides taking the term 'conversation piece' to a new level, these are the only furniture pieces ever created by the designer, this as part of Botanist; a collective effort from renown designers to bring awareness to causes they are passionate about. Each piece in the Botanist catalogue donates funds to a charitable organization chosen by the designer.
Proceeds from the sales of Mr. Milton Glaser's designs will benefit the International Rescue Committee.
These pieces, guaranteed to become a classic, can be used both indoor and outdoor and are available for Residential and Contract applications.
"Creativity Empowered for Positive Change": Botanist donates funds to over ten foundations worldwide and serves as a platform to create awareness for important social issues.
