The 8E Quarterly Subscription launched February 1, 2013. It features a Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Art & Design piece sent directly to your door. Each season's piece is a surprise, and rotates amongst materials such as paper, wood, ceramic and collaborations in paper and wood. The 8E Quarterly Subscription is a fantastic way to curate four small art pieces into your home. Give it as a wedding, birthday or anniversary gift.
The Summer piece launched May 1 and is titled 'Chrysalis'. It is made from locally sourced maple and stained white. Its front engraved shape is derived from a blueprint of a flattened icosahedron and then rotated back into space, which gives it its geometric curve. 'Chrysalis' fits perfectly in the hand and can sit in various positions. The white stain allows for the wood's history marks to show through.
'Chrysalis' ships starting June 1 and will be available through the 8E Quarterly Subscription until July 30. You can find more photos of it on our blog as well as see the Spring piece, which is no longer available.
The subscription pieces are exclusive to subscribers, who receive all 4 seasons for $200 + shipping. They are not available in the general collection until 4 months after their launch and at a premium rate. You can sign up for the subscription at any time during the year since it continues into 2014 and beyond. Pieces are launched 1 month before they ship: Spring March 1 (ships April 1), Summer May 1 (ships June 1), Fall August 1 (ships September 1), and Winter November 1 (ships December 1).
