Some of my friends over at Minima have curated and organized an event for Design Philadelphia 2008 called “A Clean Break.” It’s biggest highlight is an ACTUAL prefab Weehouse by Alchemy Architects from St. Paul, MN…which is extremely cool!! The Weehouse is an interesting design that I’ve actually wondered about in the past, and so I’ll be excited to check it out in person. (It’s especially interesting because it comes in several different variations and can be customized.) Here’s a picture of the Weehouse getting installed into the Philadelphia exhibition space on Spruce St.
The show also features high design, low waste “innovations” by artists such as Michael Iannone, Daniel Michalik, In Liquid, Bolle Design, Pie Studio, and SMIT. (Shown below is one of my favorite items by MIchael Iannone, his cork sideboard.)
The event kicks off on Thursday Oct 16th from 7-10pm, but is open daily from 11-7pm, Oct 17th – 30th. The exhibition is located at 313 South Broad Street at Spruce, Philadelphia. Go check it out!!
