This is AlKa
We may live in a “throwaway society”, but as artists we see that as an opportunity to reuse, refresh and re-purpose what’s unwanted.
It is about giving a new life to something discarded. By blending functional design with sculptural process,
we create pieces that are born from the inherent character of the found object.
Check out our vast capabilities: high art, mixed media sculptures, functional art,
brand execution, concept store design, concept design development, prototyping and 3D print modeling.
We take each project on a journey from words to physical reality, with all the steps in between.
A Chicago native, Alan Adilman has a BA in Industrial Design from the Center of Creative Studies in Detroit. From there he has built his creative aesthetic and design sense. From working in Japan for Mazda in the ’90s as a conceptual car designer, to the creation of a company called Propeller Lab that designed one-of-a-kind products, to designing fixture and display for retailers for today’s clients. Alan is able to tie these very different disciplines into a cohesive talent and express this in his art. He is the mechanical arm of AlKa.
