Our Kaka‘ako Urban Garden

For those of you who don’t know what we’ve been up to we’ve been quite busy. Over the past two weeks we’ve been building a community “greenspace” in the parking lot next to our shop. Previously the home to a dumpster and one dilapidated shed, as you can see below, we think it’s a significant improvement.

The first phase was for April’s Nightmarket but Phase II is coming soon. It will include more planters, seating and some fun accent pieces. Watch this space for updates or follow us on Instagram or Facebook.

Wake Up, We’re Here

We’re thrilled to share our space with the Analog Sunshine Recorders for the release of their first book Wake Up, We’re Here. The genisis of this project started out as a simple road trip conceived of by John Hook. Vincent Ricafort suggested creating a book to chronicle the “misadventures” of this motley group. The result, a multi-media exhibition by the group featuring photos not found in the book itself, framed original works and original prints as well as a limited edition 110 page hard cover, case bound coffee table book.

Please join us in a visual journey through the lenses of 8 individuals with cameras in a single van for 18 days, crossing 5000 miles of the great American landscape. Take a sneak peak or follow them here on Facebook.

The exhibition will open this Saturday at Honolulu’s Nightmarket in Kakaako with the official book launch following on Friday March 22nd.

Handcrafted Modern Europe

Alvar Aalto

If you’ve seen the book Handcrafted Modern you’ll know why I supported this kickstarter. Leslie Williamson is an amazing photographer dedicated to documenting and sharing the homes of some of the most important mid-century designers and architects. Her second book, Handcrafted Modern Europe, will showcase the homes of people like Alvar Aalto, Finn Juhl and Gae Aulenti among many others. These homes and studios are quickly disappearing and this is one way we can preserve, share and be inspired by them.

Check out her blog and kickstarter campaign to help fund this important project.

This photos doesn’t do the event justice. We were so swamped in our little shop that the first chance I had to go outside was at the end of the night after the band had stopped playing. You can see the throngs of people heading out onto the street. Needless to say it was an amazing event thanks to Pow Wow, a collaborative art event that takes place in Kaka’ako every year and the event coordinators that put on Nightmarket.
