BUILDING BLOCK’s taking an artistic approach to their new shop-in-shop studio showroom with a seasonal residency program that allows designers and creatives to showcase their work in a dedicated, personalized setting.
For Spring, BUILDING BLOCK Project Space has invited Los Angeles-based concept space IKO IKO for their first residency and highlight the measures of design: a proposal around experience, a different proportion, and new thoughts on presentation to express a particular angle of life. The shop-in-shop is public through May 26, 2019.
IKO IKO is steered by Kristin Dickson-Okuda and provides the context for her clothing and accessories project, Rowena Sartin, and her partner Shin Okuda’s furniture project, Waka Waka, as well as select vintage finds, and one-off pieces. Revisit insights from our 2011 trendscaping visit here.
As popups and experiential retail have become commonplace by brand-names and makers alike, we appreciate this collaborative, artistic spin under the banner of residency. It's undeniably fresh and fits each brands minimalist aesthetic.
