What is Steampunk?
The Steampunk movement is exploding, and influencing books, movies, fashion, and home decor, inspiring objects that run the gamut from practical and conservative home furnishings to fanciful techno objects. While Steampunk admirers are diverse, they all share an appreciation for the quality, craftsmanship and authenticity of antiques, as well as modern technology and conveniences.
What is Steampunk by Design?
Steampunk by Design is a collaborative of individuals who maintain a passion for the character and charm of recycled vintage pieces, while also embracing the technological advancements and emerging products of the 21st century. Collectively, the team combines their respective talents to integrate the old with the new, resulting in beautiful and functional design solutions that make a statement in a contemporary as well as antique home.
Our team consists of Dennis Dubuc of Audio Concepts, Mark Landsberg of MLA Consultants, Linda Hentschel of Renaissance Interiors, Bruce Rosenbaum of ModVic LLC, and Bill Raymer & Donna Lee Robertson of Restoration Resources. The team also has a pool of resources including artists and craftsmen, and assorted experts to accommodate any type of project.
The mission of the Steampunk by Design team is to create unique as well as practical interior design concepts and furnishings, that creatively integrate technology into recycled, and re-purposed period objects. Steampunk is unique, and cool, as well as eco-friendly. Imagine brass and copper, glass and polished wood, and intricate details that have been long forgotten now creatively blended into modern tools, adding history and a vintage vibe to any object and/or location.
We pride ourselves at tastefully combining the best of old world craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology for contemporary living! Our first collaborative effort, was a Steampunk’d home theater experience where audio and video components have been blended with recycled and repurposed period objects into the overall design scheme of our “new” Jules Verne room at Audio Concepts in Boston. The Steampunk by Design team turns salvaged antiques and modern technology into beautiful and functional design solutions that appeal to both conservative and trendy homeowners. The concept is gaining widespread popularity throughout the residential design field.
