Michael Aram's 25th Anniversary Commemorative Collection is a retrospective selection of Michael's favorite functional pieces culled from his archives of the past 25 years. These re-edited pieces are produced for a limited time only during 2014 and embody the charm, whimsy and organic quality which are hallmarks in Aram's work. Beginning with a spiraled handle shoe horn, the collection takes us on a visual journey through the evolution of Michael's design process and sensibility, which began after a life altering trip to India where Michael first became enthralled with the country's rich craft traditions.

"Twenty-five years ago, I took what would soon become a life altering trip. I remember casually walking the streets of Delhi and becoming intrigued by what I saw...simple three-sided shacks lining the side of the road, each one sheltering a lone craftsman working with raw metal to create simple everyday objects...buckets, scissors, shovels. There was something so visceral, yet beautiful about their process. Initially, my collaboration with these artists was just for my own exploration...to see what would happen. I had no idea at the time where that act of curiosity would lead me and them.

“There is a tremendous reflection of our own humanity in handmade objects When you make things by hand, somehow that energy, that tension, that passion, all gets absorbed into the object Objects are powerful They trace history, trace our passage through time, they capture memories for generations” ~ M.
