Debuting in 2008, the Botanist Blank Canvas project features the original, limited-edition collections of eight designers. Each designer began with a blank Botanist end table, cocktail table and bench and then imprinted them with a unique design. Not only are these pieces eco-friendly, durable and stunning, they also give back: a portion of the sale of every product in the Blank Canvas series goes to a charity of the designer's choice. This end table features the flowing branch design of Joseph Ricchio, who has worked on a multitude of projects in product, furniture and graphic design, with Kara Larsen. Designer Joseph Ricchio on the Albero Series:What was your inspiration?''The concept is my expression of the beauty of life. I chose a delicate and elegant branch with dew dropping off of it to represent earth, water and life.''Why is it important for you to give back?'' DIFFA: Design Industry Fighting Aids. I have been donating to them for many years for a variety of reasons: 1) Larry Pond was the Director of Design at Stendig and introduced my first chair, he began DIFFA and has since died of AIDS, 2) I have a family member that is HIV positive and 3) I believe it is simply a good choice.''This Design Benefits:A percentage of the sale of the Albero End Table goes to the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, one of the country's largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventive education for those at risk.
