American Made – Pop-Up Market, Santa Fe, NM 2011

Website | + posts

"I love fresh ideas about everything". Adriana Siso founded her contemporary industrial design store in 2002 in Santa Fe, NM. With a background in Fine Arts, Adriana has been an innovator, bringing to the Santa Fe area, original and unique industrial design products by some of the most creative design firms in the world.

The first design partners Molecule worked with were Vitra Design Museum, Moooi, Cherner Chair, and other well-known national and international brands. Today it partners with other world-class manufacturers like Vondom, Loll Designs and Moroso.

Molecule operated out of a recycled and renovated shipping container building, the first of its kind in Santa Fe. Currently Molecule is available through the online store and by appointment.

Sustainability is an important area of interest and ongoing exploration for Molecule, which offers product lines with a focus on conservation and ecological stewardship. A recent alliance with the Vertical Aeroponic Growing System – Tower Garden, promises to offer a lot of inspiration in the growing field of aeroponics as the future of agriculture, industrial design at its best.

Come meet us at our first AMERICAN-MADE event. We’ll be doing a Pop-Up Holiday Market, featuring:

New Mexico Designers:

Erika Eckerstrand – Solar Mesh Bags
Tony Anella – Architect – Sustainable Furniture & Objects
Jonathan Boyd – Hand Crafted Furniture
Marion Wasserman – Digital Textiles

Santa Fe is blessed to have an amazing creative culture. The city is renowned as a center of art, set in one of the nation’s most historic communities. It has a strong design community involving architecture, and interior design. Recently, the area is seeing a development in product design, artists thinking products, merging approaches and techniques, to consider industrial fabrication. We’re seeing a surge in the production of one of a kind utilitarian objects that are born from art thinking, which transition into a new consideration of use.  This first pop-up event brings together a few of these new Santa Fe designers.
