[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.

Meet Louis Dombowsky, master craftsman.  From a family of designers and entrepreneurs Dombowsky started building furniture with his grandfather at a young age. He spent a few years pouring concrete, framing and doing finish carpentry, a veteran of that trade. One leap later, he's working through an Industrial Design degree at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. He's the man behind the quickly emerging Vancouver brand #AzuzaDesign.  Look closely, you just might recognize his work from around town. 

#AzuzaDesign can be found in Kit + Ace stores across Canada - staple pieces that unite the paired down aesthetics and concept of the established retailer. #AzuzaDesign pieces are elegant and centred around design for social engagement.  Made with state of the art technologies, Dombowsky combines engineering principles with the creative process to bring each design to fruition - a union of form and function. Steel, ultra high performance concrete, reclaimed wood are some of the materials used to deliver seamless, practical pieces, built to last. 

#AzuzaDesign presents three new dining tables alongside art and designed objects to set a comfortable and paired-down living room atmosphere for this week long collection release pop-up. Come down to The Playground, have a seat and talk art and design, first week of June. Opening night: Saturday May 30th, 8PM - Late. See here for shop hours and cruise the site for your daily dose of design inspiration.
