Home Décor: Ex-car designer Sid Ramnarace has introduced a new line of hand-crafted housewares, The Ramnarace Metalcraft Collection.
Ramnarace has designed products for such luxurious companies as Martha Stewart, Cuisinart, Ford and Aston Martin.
The collection focuses on functional art forms, uniquely integrating the crafted forms and subtle shapes used in car design in accessories for the home, including bowls and coasters that are sleek and sophisticated. Each piece combines the old world craft of metal-casting with the modern form of today's contemporary automobile design.
Using recycled aluminum, each piece in the collection is a sleek piece of modern art that is as functional as it is easy to see its ancestry in the car industry.
After years spent studying under the tutelage of legendary American design icon Viktor Schrekengost, Ramnarace has managed to use the same elements that make some of the most recognizable automobiles on the road also some of the most unique household objects.
