I’m pretty sure you’ve come across the diamond-sparkle of life-shaped piñata from confetti system. What better way to spend your time, but doing this wonderful shiny object that turn any room into a magical space. The first time I saw them was at a Beach House show in Coachella. THe colab is a match made in pinata-powered heaven. After returning from that weekend of glory, I Immediately started doing research on what they do and saw that they’ve done work for Urban Outfitters, Rodarte, United Bamboo and other bands like the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s. After working at the Martha Stewart Mag, Julie Ho and Nick Andersen joined forces for Confetti System, where it was born out from their shared love of communal celebration and craft-making, bringing them together to create a new system.
“CONFETTISYSTEM transforms simple materials such as issue paper, cardboard, and silk into interactive objects that create a point of focus, where memories are made and a spontaneous collaboration with the viewer is sparked. CONFETTISYSTEM’s creations occupy the space between the ephemeral and the permanent, evoking a sense of nostalgia and lighthearted fun.”
Finally I got so hooked up on this wonderful pinata Idea that I started making my own and searching for one to buy. Up at there site CS, have a shop, but the piñatas are a bit out my budget. So I stumbled upon another site who had them a bit more accessible but they only had two. Below the pictures of the pinata. When i finish my DYI wannabee pinata i’ll make another post showing the process. ENjoy the pics and vids below!
