Come rain Come Shine is a Light Shade
Come Rain Come Shine is Tord Boontje’s lyrical reinterpretation of the chandelier, bringing playful sophistication to any surrounding. Constructed from a round metal structure, the chandelier froths and preens in a handcrafted concoction of crocheted cotton, organza, silk and fabric flowers, casting a dramatic and mysterious glow when lit.
Come Rain Come Shine adds a touch of playful sophistication to any surrounding. Once lit, it casts a dramatic and mysterious glow. Come Rain Come Shine is produced through Coopa-Roca, a women’s cooperative based in Rio de Janeiro’s largest shantytown, employing humanitarian values and artisan production methods consistent with Artecnica’s Design With Conscience campaign.
By using their homes as workshops, cooperative members earn a living while tending to their children and other domestic responsibilities. In addition to extending livelihood opportunities, Coopa-Roca’s commitment to world-class craftwork has enhanced the self-esteem of women in this impoverished neighborhood.
