Organelle Design

Alex and Courtney (Organelle Design) are passionate about creatively repurposing off-the-shelf products and found objects. They presented their work at Pecha Kucha a few days ago and it was the highlight of the evening. The entire place erupted with cheers when images of their chandeliers made out of clothes hangers appeared on screen.
