Artist Shantell Martin’s black and white lines have led her to exciting and highly successful collaborations that highlight both her work and those of the brands she loves. In their newest collaboration – Shantell x HOEK – Shantell has designed super fun pieces with her iconic pen, from coasters to coffee tables and wall art, to spread throughout any eco-friendly home.
Shantell’s work explores themes of identity, connections and play. Together with Shantell, sustainable home company HOEK wants to challenge people to think about how they use space, how they consume and the materials they choose.
“We are excited to present this collaboration that we have been working on for some time. It’s always so fun and rewarding to try out different ideas – A big thanks to the HOEK team for helping to bring some of these ideas to life and eventually meet in people’s homes.” – Shantell Martin
HOEK has created a limited collection of pieces ranging from small handheld-sized elements to room-sized installations that will spark joy and inspire people to think more creatively about how they use the space around them.
“Using our collaboration with Shantell as a starting point, we can set up a framework for future artists to collaborate with HOEK on an ongoing basis. Shantell’s artistry made perfect use of our machinery, workshop and experience in materials and manufacturing. We hope to enable other young artists to find a platform and also further our mission of innovation in the furniture industry.” – Conor Coghlan, co-founder and CEO
Shantell x HOEK is a perfect meeting of minds, two artistic and thoughtful creative forces coming together to make the world a happier and more comfortable place.
