Misteur Valaire - Interlude by Field Experiments from Karim Zariffa on Vimeo.

Field Experiments is an ongoing research and development project, comprised of Benjamin Harrison Bryant (New York City, United States), Paul Marcus Fuog (Melbourne, Australia) and Karim Charlebois-Zariffa (Montreal, Canada), that explores traditional crafts by pairing designers with local craftspeople in diverse regions around the world. So far these experiments have yielded furniture, clothing, videos, publications, exhibitions, interiors, installation and printed materials.

I recently met some of these guys at Sight Unseen’s Offsite exhibition during New York Design Week (in May of this year) and I can honestly say that they're doing some of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while.
