When graphic designer and art director Jennifer Garcia meets a fellow creative type, she feels a connection so strong that it can be compared only to kinship. That emotion inspired her to launch We-Are-Familia, a multidisciplinary global network exploring the ties that bond us. Its latest effort is the Kin Coda collection of unusual keepsake boxes. Filled with family-oriented artworks, the 25 assemblages were designed by the likes of Joe Doucet and David Weeks-half with discarded materials and products donated by Fritz Hansen. The company's New York showroom already displayed those boxes, but Garcia is talking to museums about a full family outing.
