Artecnica Come Rain Come Shine Chandelier: Multicolor or Black
Originally sponsored by The British Council, Come Rain Come Shine Chandelier is now available to a global audience through Artecnica's collaboration with designer Tord Boontje and Coopa-Roca, a women's cooperative based in Rocinha, Rio de Jaineiro's largest shantytown. Coopa-Roca employs humanitarian values and artisanal production methods consistent with Artecnica's Design with Conscience campaign. Coopa-Roca recruits unemployed local women to produce Come Rain Come Shine Multicolor. By using their homes as workshops, cooperative members can 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.
