Todd Bracher 2016 Designer of the Year

Todd Bracher 2016 Designer of the Year

January 2017
In the last year, one name in design has popped up over and over again, in the best way possible: Todd Bracher. It seemed that the industrial designer was attached to many of the eye-catching pieces dotted around NeoCon. But just as important as his designs, Bracher himself is the embodiment of what to expect from quality products; he’s down-to-earth, thoughtful and deliberate, and opinionated. It is with pride that i+s announces him as the Designer of the Year for 2016.

Glass is characterized by the duality of its strong yet fragile nature. Poetically and metaphorically, glass reflects the spirit of those battling cancer, and therefore, is the material of choice for the fourth edition of Luminaire’s “Love” fundraising auctions to benefit cancer research. Driven by their desire to give back and help find a cure, Luminaire founders Nasir and Nargis Kassamali are hosting GlasLove. Todd Bracher invited to contribute to the GlasLove auction.
