The future has never been closer than it is today. Humans have always had an itch to explore and discover new worlds, but the need to stay grounded to the human spirit remains a crucial element of innovation. Greek for a vision of utopia, Arcadia focuses on the man who is interested in the concepts and designs of tomorrow, but stays in constant contact with what it means to be a sensory- driven being. The result is a warm, organic expression of an approaching paradise, complemented with just the right amount of sci-fi charm. In his metaphorical search for the best parts of the future, he brings with him cultural relics of the past. We call these things "aesthetifacts" - fine art, handed-down pottery, time-honored fabrics, beautiful plants, and music. This new serene sanctuary of his is an experiment in 21st century retro futurism, with close ties to what made the human race what it was. The ultra modern lines and organic textures show us what archetypical classics would look like in a world that's yet to come.
