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.

"A Product of Design" Opening Night
A BIG thank you to all the folks who attended and made the opening of “A Product of Design” at the Scion Installation LA gallery such a success. We had a great time, and hope you did too. 
Our special gratitude to all the artists and designers in the show, who worked hard and long to make everything look terrific, as well as to the Scion Installation LA family, who give their all to every show. 
The show remains open through October 4, 2011, if you missed the opening. It features great work from a collection of designers whose passion for their products is palpable.
A few shots from the opening and installation week are up on Flickr. Scion should have more up soon!

Société Perrier / Function + Form = A Product Of Design

Posted in Color, Exhibitions, Gluekit, Press by Gluekit on September 9, 2011

“What is the dividing line between a work of art and a commercially designed product? When does something cross the line between aesthetically satisfying and pragmatically plausible? Where do form and function meet, and which should take precedence? These are just a few of the questions that are entertained — if not exactly answered — by A Product Of Design. This show, sponsored by Scion and curated by Gluekit, takes a look at the work of nine different artists (Or are they designers? There are those bothersome distinctions mucking things up again.) who routinely cross the lines between passion and product.” —Jim Allen @ Société Perrier
