A little taste of PIE:

PIE (Project Import Export, Inc.) is a multidisciplinary design studio; very well know for its beautiful Modern Eco
Friendly Designs from Art, Decorative Accessories, Furniture, and Built Environment.  PIE studio uses only renewable
and sustainable natural resources, recycled/recyclable synthetic materials and non-toxic additives in its designs and
products.  PIE studio sustainable materials choices are water hyacinth, liana, bamboo, rattan, polyethylene,
aluminum, stainless steel and composite boards (made from natural waste).  Some of these selected are renewable;
on the other hand, some of these beautiful natural materials are considered harmful to the ecosystem.  Plants like
water hyacinth and liana naturally and rapidly grown in abundance without having any specific usage.  These plants
are often cut down and destroyed to help keep the balance in our ecosystem.  PIE studio takes these wasteful
natural materials to create its Eco Friendly Furniture, products and spaces.  In doing so, PIE studio is helping the
environment by putting these menacing plants into good use.  Using nature as the primary inspiration to the designs,
PIE studio team carefully crafted each piece by hands to create beautiful curvaceous designs along with rich textures
that generate warmth and sensuality to every space.
