Piece Per Week is project initiated by Groupa Studio, a recently founded design collection run by Holon Academic Institute of Technology (Israel) graduates Shimshovitz, Yiffa Levin and Chen Guiterman.
Piece Per Week is a 10 week marathon of fresh ideas, rummaging through drawers, sketches, experiments, materials, shapes, planning, executing, shooting, pricing and finally…the finished product, furniture or some other designed object, was published every Tuesday on their Facebook page. All items on Piece Per Week are for sale. This reminds me a bit of Dominic Wilcox’s speed creating project.
