2010 marks ACME Studio’s 25th year in business, and they are celebrating here at Market this July. From the start, ACME has been completely immersed in providing products of the highest quality and integrity with the aesthetics of the world’s most recognized designers, architects and artists.
Each year, ACME continues to add to their already impressive roster of designers and celebrates their anniversary with the debut of a new collection: “STILETTO,” For Women by Women. For this collection, ACME took a new feminine approach to filling a void in the market place that no other pen manufacturer has yet considered. They will be debuting this collection and other product in the High Design juried category within the Market Temporaries.
Having worked with names such as Karim Rashid, Campana Brothers, Eames and Michael Graves, owners Adrian Olabuenaga and Lesley Bailey are highly recognized and valued. When asked about his feelings towards ACME and their accomplishment of 25 years, architect Michael Graves says, “For nearly 25 years we’ve enjoyed a spirited collaboration with ACME Studios as a design partner for numerous products. As design leaders, Lesley Bailey and Adrian Olabuenaga are extraordinarily tuned into the popular culture and have provided the design team with countless opportunities to stretch their design vocabulary. We congratulate ACME on their 25 years of inspiring design leadership.”
Even after 25 years, Adrian mentions, “No matter how long we do this, it always feels like we’re just getting started.”
Lesley Bailey is coming in from Hawaii for Market. You can catch her and her dynamic product Thursday – Monday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in booth W1-0211.
