KithKin Reveals

The British design collective KithKin recently set up an interesting window display at the Selfridges flagship store in London. Each week from September through mid-October a new section of the display is revealed, designed by different artists. The final portion however, called 'To Let', is up for grabs. Interested folks can bid on their own piece of the window on ebay.

Tom Price: Meltdown Chairs

New chairs from Tom Price. Part of his melted furniture series, these pieces were made by heating polyester fleece clothing with a steel form. As the fabric melts, it creates a blend of patterns and colors.

Swoc is a modular storage system built with fabric blocks. Designed by the German firm ett la benn. Too bad none of their shots show the system with stuff inside -I'm curious to see how it holds up.

Denver Community Museum

I'm happy to announce a project I've been working on for quite some time, the Denver Community Museum (DCM). Carried out in the form of a pop-up gallery, the DCM will be a temporary arts institution located in downtown Denver, CO.

Contents for the museum's monthly, rotating exhibitions will be based entirely on community submissions. Every month a new 'Community Challenge' is issued and the results will be put on display.

Submissions are now being accepted for the first Community Challenge, titled "The Missing Map". The challenge is to: create a three-dimensional globe - of any size, using any material, sharing any narrative you desire. Submissions can be turned in 9.26 or 9.27 between 12-5 PM to the DCM at 1610 Little Raven St. Suite 120.

The DCM is free both to participate in and to visit. Submissions are welcome from people of all skill levels and ages, the only requirement is that you must be a resident of the City of Denver. The museum officially opens on Friday, October 3rd - future hours will be: Thursdays, 2 - 7 PM, Fridays and Saturdays, 12 - 5 PM and by appointment.

Much more to come, but for now visit the DCM website here. I will be gone for most of the week, regular posting will resume 9/15! Start making globes.
