Gluekit Zee Tables for Long Play Show at Scion AV

Scion AV has posted up an overview of the design objects and products we created for “Long Play,” our show at their pop-up shop/retail space on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. We had the chance to work on a scale we’d only dreamed of before, crafting the steel side-tables above as well as an array of other products, including clocks, skateboards, and pillows.

Visitors to 7667 Melrose Ave will have the chance to page through all our Draw Down publications as well, all priced to sell. Plus there are free goodies– a typographic poster and an exhibition catalog!

Hit the space up through April 17!

Gluekit Products Now Available at Scion AV Installation Store in LA

Scion AV Installations recently set up a really cool gallery and shop space on Melrose Avenue in LA. Featuring artwork and products designed by a rotating roster of artists (French was first, and SSUR currently has a show up), the space also carries goods produced by artists who’ve worked with Scion AV Installations in the past as well as a curated selection of items handpicked by Scion.

We were super excited to contribute a number of products to the store, including tote bags from Part of It, some of our bookends, as well as a tote and two small books we’ve created for our newest endeavor, Draw Down Books. The photo above of the shop space has a number of these items on display, including Luck (a photo book by Isaac McKay-Randozzi published by Draw Down), our 16 pp. tote bag (celebrate small press publications!), and a Make Art Now! tote bag by the awesome UPSO, the great brain behind the ultimate art zine, Faesthetic.

More great photos of SSUR’s exhibition and the new gallery space are up here. And check out this post for a peek at French’s installation and opening night bash.

Third Drawer Down!

Posted in Brick Bookends, Buy, Color, Design, Gluekit, Made, Museums by Gluekit on October 30, 2010

Gluekit’s Brick Bookends are now available at Third Drawer Down and The Museum of Art Souvenirs Store in Australia.

From their website: Assembling a curated array of art and designer products, the store functions as both showroom, design studio, museum and retail space with objects either hand picked from various popular cultural contexts or made by Third Drawer Down for leading Museums around the world. The Museum of Art Souvenirs Store is nestled behind a graffiti tagged garage door and is Australia’s only trading museum. It’s like visiting all the best museum stores in one spot, and shipped everywhere (even to the moon). Our eccentric and witty taste of products by artists/designers and niche brands include crayon rocks, chocolate pie charts, giant corn cob stools, children’s art supplies, limited edition textiles, bed linens and publications that question the mainstream conditions under which art and culture are bought and sold.

Lots of cool stuff to check out when you visit!

Part of It is proud to present “Logika Neutrala Facila,” a new design by the esteemable Stuart Bailey (of Dexter Sinister and Dot Dot Dot fame) now available at a special PRE-ORDER price from the PoI website.

Best Before October 26, 2008

Posted in Announcement, Buy, Color, Part of It, Photographs, Type by Gluekit on October 21, 2008

We’re very happy to announce that Part of It will be celebrating Daniel Eatock’s “Best Before October 26, 2008” project, which he created to coincide with the closing of his exhibition at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania (just outside of Philly). We’re hosting a sale of Eatock’s “Alphabet” shirt at a special price but the sale will end on October 26.

This weekend we stopped by his exhibition, “Extra Medium,” which is Eatock’s first solo show in the United States. Happily, we also were able to pick up his new book, Imprint, which features his life’s work thus far and, to our happy surprise, includes his Alphabet design for Part of It!

Go ahead, make some noise!

Over and Over and Over

Posted in Black and White, Books, Buy, Patterns, Published by Gluekit on August 26, 2008

We were super honored to find out last week that we were included in Mike Perry’s most recent book on hand-drawn pattern-making, Over and Over (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008). When we saw the pre-publication announcements, we put the new book on our wish list, but lo and behold, we’re actually in it! We couldn’t be more thrilled. Like MP’s last book, Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, this one is chock full of inspiration, insight, and awesomeness from cover to cover.
