In the land of curvaceous adobe, a corrugated steel building soaring two stories is arresting. And, when you learn that this sleek contemporary space was constructed from eleven 40-ft containers that were craned in and assembled in only two days - the welding, electrical and interiors took a bit longer - well, the story gets intriguing.

"Molecule opened this past December," says Adriana Siso, the creative genius behind this soaring space that showcases brilliant, contemporary industrial design.

Trained in fine arts and faux painting, Adriana - a twenty-two year resident of Santa Fe -  has  a keen eye for sleek and sassy contemporary home and commercial furnishings. Her 4,200 sq. ft., light-filled showroom is studded with work from cutting-edge designers like: American designer, Norman Cherner; De La Espada, from Portugal; and the brilliant Dutch design firm Moooi. Here's a visual tour:

The wood frame of this luscious chair is actually burned, hence it's name - Smoke Chair,  designed by Moooi.

Individual recycled cardboard pieces, created by the very-green Philadelphia design firm Mio,  can be linked in interesting ways.

Absolutely wonderful baby/kiddies furniture and trappings.

Fab lighting.

Gorgeous art photography on the walls.

As well as nifty "stuff".

Brass knuckles anyone?
