About this collection:
The Rainforest Collection is inspired by the fragility of the world's natural resources and the mysterious beauty of the flora and fauna found in tropical jungles. "While on a recent trip to Brazil, I was struck by the beauty of the Amazon rainforest. During my trip, I discovered the work of landscape architect and Brazilian modernist Roberto Burle Marx. His striking work sensitively integrated modern forms and structures with the natural beauty of the country's rainforests. I was very moved by the happy coexistence between the lushness of the forest and the striking modernity of Burle Marx's architectural designs. There is a wonderful contrast between the clean, geometric shapes of the buildings and hardscaping as juxtaposed by the savage, untouched beauty of the rainforest."

About Michael Aram:
American artist Michael Aram studied art in New York in the late 1980s before traveling to India on an inspirational journey, where he discovered a rich metalworking tradition that inspired his turn toward handcrafted design. Michael Aram established a home and workshop in New Delhi, where he began crafting objects ranging from tableware to furniture, all of which reflect the hand of the artisan. The tension of line, form, and meaning is a distinguishing characteristic of Aram's extraordinary designs, inspiring thoughtful appreciation and bringing a sense of ceremony in their day-to-day use. Each Michael Aram piece is handmade, so no two items are exactly alike.
