This is another update (see earlier) on our work for our first retail space, hosted by the Barbican in their gallery shop – the opening of this new collaboration will coincide with their new show: Pioneers of the Downtown Scene, New York 1970s
The shop is currently featuring a selection of products commissioned for our past events Tea Tasting (Future Beauty: 30 years of Japanese Fashion) at Barbican and the FoodMarketo events (in collaboration with Apartamento magazine: Fruits&Vegetables at Milan Salone del Mobile 2010 and Coffee&Friends at London Design Festival 2010) as well as some objects showcased on the website… Slowly the selection will grow with the new collection assembled for the collaboration with the Barbican Art Gallery.
We are all very excited by the feedbacks, the drawings and pictures of the projects we are receiving from the design team. The products will be exclusively presented in avant-premiere on the night of the 31st of March during the dinner we organise in the gallery. There are a few seats left, so if you haven’t booked yet, you should…
Reading the emails from Maud—with who we are planning/designing the menu—is simply mouth-watering. For those of you who attended our Coffe&Friends event last september, she was the one in charge of the kitchen and prepared the amazing nibbles and finger food of our party. For those who missed it, head over the booking page at Barbican—you don’t really want to miss this!
* If you are abroad, please stay re-assured as the website will receive an update on both it content and its design in the coming weeks and most of the products available in our first retail shop, will also be available online.
** As usual: how could I recommend you more to stay up-to-date with our activities on Facebook, Twitter or via the Mailinglist—you would be sad to miss anything!
