We have been working for the past couple of months with Maayan and Nikki, of The Lake and Stars on their pop up for BOFFO‘s Building Fashion 2011 series. It has been a lot of fun working with them and all of the guys at BOFFO. We would like to thank BOFFO for the opportunity and everyone that has helped out! The store will be open from November 10-23 @ Walker Street. If you are around please stop by and check it out. We designed a giant furry kaleidoscope! More importantly the opening party is this Friday, Nov. 11th from 8pm-11pm.

We had a lot of fun at Creators Project | New York 2011. Wish all of our projects were surrounded by parties, concerts, great people and artists! It was an amazing weekend and we were honored to be included with artists and designers that inspired us when we first started the studio! Many thanks to everyone at Vice and Intel who not only invited us to be a part of the event, but were so accommodating throughout the whole project.

We have been working with the guys at Focus Lighting on our pop up store with The Lake & Stars. The guys at Focus have been great and mocked up a couple of prototypes in there space. Not going to say what these are yet (You will have to check out the store!), but it was really exciting and promising to see the mock-ups. The store opens Nov. 10th at 57 Walker Street. We are well under way with production and an’t wait to see it all together in the space!

If you are around this weekend hope you can make your way out to Dumbo for the Creator’s Project | New York 2011. A lot of crazy fun things going on: Florence + The Machine, Justice, United Visual Artists outdoor installation from Coachella, Karen O’s “Psycho Opera”, film screenings, perfomances, and many great installations. All of our favorite things! We are wrapping up our installation today at 55 Washington Street. Many thanks to Vice and Intel for getting us involved and supporting the project the whole way through! Hope to see you all this weekend.
Bring To Light is happening tomorrow night! Over 50 artists will project, display, turn on and shine their various projects tomorrow night in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We worked with our good friend Natasha Jen and the folks over at Nuit Blanche NY to produce the website for the event. If you are around tomorrow it will definitely be worth checking out!
We have been working hard this past month a large outdoor installation for The San Gennaro North Gate and it finally came up this Saturday! If you are in the city you can check it out on Mulberry St. between Houston and Prince St. The piece was produced by our friends at Two Bridges (Thanks Joe!) and graciously supported by St.Patrick’s Old Cathedral. We collaborated with our good friends Ambre and Adrew from The They Co. who currated, organized, and permitted, and all around made the piece possible.
The geometry was engineered with our good friend Matt Clark at ARUP and all of the building connections were designed by Nathaniel Stanton of CRAFT Engineering. The piece would not have been possible without them. Big Thanks to everyone who volunteered and supported this huge effort.
The piece will be up until September 25th, 2011 so if you are downtown we hope you get a chance to check out the festival, play a little bocce ball, and let us know what you think about the installation!
