INTERNI, the Magazine of Interiors and Contemporary Design, Shantell Martin and FLOS joined to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the magazine, for a good cause. The Special Design Anniversary New York initiative was organized in collaboration with 6 companies that are symbols of the history of Design in the fields of accessories, lighting and living: Alessi, Cappellini, Cassina, Flos, Kartell, Poltrona Frau. For the occasion, each company presented a special one-off edition, a single version of one of their most iconic products, made with a special finish and dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Design.
The one-offs were sold in an online benefit auction to support the American DRIF – Diabete Research Institute Foundation which raises funds and promotes projects of research and innovation to cure diabetes.
Shantell Martin was invited to decorate the “String Light” lamp, which was designed by Michael Anastassiades for FLOS and she was also commissioned to do a mural in FLOS’ New York HQ.
