Spring cleaning often goes hand-in-hand with the desire to spruce up one’s place a bit. Thanks to architect Donald Rattner and his wife, Gaby, this can extend beyond a bouquet of daisies from Peas & Pickles. Modul a.r.t. is their pop-up design studio that caters to those who want to fill their walls with art, but shy away from the hefty price tag.
The geometric styles, or portfolios, include three lines: Wall A.R.T., Shelf A.R.T. and Mural A.R.T. You can mix and match the eye-popping colors, shapes and sizes in an endless number of ways for customizable works; more can later be added or taken away, allowing the design to evolve over time.
And if you’re like me and know what you like but don’t have a knack for design, Donald can help you bridge that gap as well. The studio is at 81 Front St. in DUMBO until April 18th. For more information, visit http://www.art-rethought.com/ or call 877-360-3660.
