CONFETTISYSTEM's Got Your Layer Lesson Right Here

07/09/14

Using nostalgic ephemera from your sister’s 6th birthday party, triple-threat duo (artists/stylists/designers) Nicholas Anderson and Julie Ho of CONFETTISYSTEM have made something of an empire over the last six years. Their work, which is comprised of everything from large-scale piñatas and editorial set designs, has been featured everywhere from the pages of The New York Times and V Magazine, the windows of Opening Ceremony and Bergdorf Goodman, even the hallowed halls of MoMA PS1—a varied collection of clients ranging between consumer-culture and high-culture.

With an eye on texture, Anderson and Ho manage to recreate the world, re-envisioning it in a way that straddles the line between old and new. In scale and execution, it borders the surreal—much like a setpiece from any Wes Anderson movie. Walking into a CONFETTISYSTEM-designed space is like falling into a parallel universe, where every day is Mardi Gras (minus the booze and debauch).

Independent of all the frill and fuss, the two have a sense of architecture at their core, something apparent in their series of New York-inspired pieces for Urban Research from 2011 (seen below in black and white). And whether or not you’re into what are essentially party decorations on steroids, you’ve got to appreciate the pair’s unparalleled knack for layering and a sense of texture and shape that has allowed for them to corner a market they essentially crafted themselves… by hand, of course.
