Summer 8E Subscription Launch

Chrysalis, made from maple and stained white, Summer 2013
In Ann Arbor, Michigan, spring is a little slow to progress. We see robbins and birds migrating back but the trees are still holding onto their winter coats. It snowed last week! But at Eight Emperors, things are trucking right along! To play catch up, we had a great sale on in February followed by the launch of the inaugural piece, We are Building, in the 8E Quarterly Subscription on March 1.

March and April were spent fulfilling orders, prototyping new pieces, and preparing the summer piece in the subscription series. And in the midst of this, we are expecting our first baby any day now and just bought a new home! So though spring is slow in Michigan, our lives have been on fast forward!

Speaking of the subscription series, the Summer piece launches TODAY! We'd like to introduce you to Chrysalis. Made from locally sourced maple, its shape is pulled from blueprints of a flattened icosahedron and then rotated back into space. It fits nicely in your hand.

Chrysalis is stained white, which allows the wood's history to come through. Sign up May 1 through July 30 to receive it plus the following 3 other seasonal pieces. If you are already signed up, fantastic! Chrysalis ships starting June 1.


Also added to our collection this Spring are three different shelving units: Blomst Single, Blomst Double and Lille Blomst. Each comes in either maple or walnut. The Blomst series, meaning flower in Danish, adds a little nature above your office workspace.

As always, we'd be happy to add a personal message when you give pieces in our collection as wedding, anniversary or birthday gifts. And if you are interested in keeping up with our announcements, sign up for our e-newsletter. We promise we won't bombard you! Happy Spring everyone!
