CONFETTISYSTEM is Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho, a duo working as artists, stylists, and designers. Their friendship, love of communal celebration, and craft making has brought them together to create a new system.
The system is a collection of objects and jewellery born from simple materials in pastel and sparkling colours. Tissue paper, cardboard, and silk are transformed into interactive objects that create a point of focus where memories can be made and a spontaneous collaboration between themselves and the viewer is sparked. CONFETTISYSTEM occupies the space that exists between the ephemeral and the permanent and aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia and lighthearted fun. In addition to having their decorations seen in numerous private celebrations, CONFETTISYSTEM also art directs and creates installations and sets for the fashion and music industry such as United Bamboo, Opening Ceremony, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, and Beach House. Their work has been featured in many publications including the NY Times, V Magazine, Domino, Surface Magazine, and Teen Vogue. Their work has also been exhibited at galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Holland and now Belgium.
