Product Spotlight: Facaro Infuses Bike Culture into Elegant Home Décor
‘CONNECT’ is a functional sculpture series created by artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga (also known as Facaro). Recycled bike chains are sourced from shops all around Los Angeles and infused with a fresh, new and sophisticated take on life. What looks like larger-than-life, traditional chandeliers from a distance are actually heavily intricate, handmade works of art. “All of the bike chains that I use are trash so if they weren’t going to me, they’d be going, most likely, to the dump. I sort of redirect the fate of these chains.” Watch the video above to hear more about Facaro’s amazing work process.
