Haptic Lab Free Embroidery Day!
To kick off Haptic Lab's 10th Anniversary we are offering free hand monogramming* with the purchase of a quilt or quilt coat at our Pop-Up Shop in Gowanus on September 12th from 1-6PM.
*Free custom embroidery includes one monogram, (3 letters only/no shapes). In person only/limited to stock and styles available in the pop-up. First come first served. Hand embroidery is time intensive, so please expect a short wait.
Haptic Lab is an interdisciplinary design studio founded by Brooklyn architect Emily Fischer in 2009. Specializing in tactile and sensory design, our custom handmade objects and spaces are designed to playfully explore the sense of touch and feel. Emily made her first quilted maps when her mother was diagnosed with glaucoma; these early projects were meant to be wayfinding tools for the visually impaired.
Haptic designs counter the rapid digitization of our lives by privileging the real, physical world our bodies occupy. Like a cane that safely guides someone down the sidewalk, our projects serve as tools for sensation. We make intricate quilts, kites, and objects that combine new technologies with traditional craft techniques -- infusing a sense of play and timelessness into everything we make.
The Haptic Lab team is comprised of a small group of craft artisans, designers and tinkerers. Drawing upon our diverse creative skill sets, we seek to change the world of producing goods to bring about transparency, simplicity, sustainability and consciousness.
