RPRTHUMB

NYCrafted takes you behind the labels, to the intersection of craft and technology fueling New York City’s urban manufacturing revitalization. This multi-media celebration of National Manufacturing Day shares the place-based narratives of four exemplary NYC-based manufacturers: Martin Greenfield Clothiers, Jacques Torres Chocolate, Kombucha Brooklyn and Rock Paper Robot. Meet the crafters, take the tours and explore the web of businesses that brings NYCrafted products into your home.

Take a tour of RockPaperRobot. RockPaperRobot brings to life high-end kinetic furniture and lighting – from floating tables to mobile chandeliers. RockPaperRobot relocated to New Lab’s beta space in February 2013. From the beta lab, visitors can see the construction site that will become New Lab, a 84,00 square foot space dedicated to the exploration of design and fabrication. Designed in 2011, New Lab will foster innovation in design, prototyping and new manufacturing. Being a tenant in the New Lab allows RockPaperRobot collaborate closely with the designers and manufacturers involved in prototyping, their products and growing their business.
