[FIRST LOOK] is where we introduce a new pop-up for the very first time. It's now in our Upcoming calendar and should be in yours too.
WXA100 is an independent design team based in Vancouver, founded by Artem K and Warren Cheng. WXA100 creates collections of distinct objects restricted to a limited-edition run of 100. This spring welcome The Ampersand Series, a collection of hand-bound marble covered notebooks inspired by: you.
Emily Carr University of Art + Design graduates Artem and Warren weave communication design with industrial design working with organic forms, geometry, typography, staying up late prototyping to nail 100 perfect items that pulse with a one-off type aura. Their goal is to produce a set of 100 designed objects a month, no collection will ever be repeated. These images are a sample of their last collection.
For the pop-up they're hosting marble paper dying sessions open to the public. Your marble dyed paper will be part of a public installation for the duration of the pop-up then they'll mail you a limited edition hand-bound notebook produced with those very papers you created! There's collaboration if we've ever heard of it. The previous limited edition series 'DIMENS1ON,' an elegant and down to earth jewelry line featuring wood-and-resin pendants on rose gold chains will be for sale alongside the newest SS15 collection, the #ampersandseries. Pop-up goes Saturday to Monday, 12PM - 6PM.
