A Pop-Up Shop Like No Other

Boffo, an organization dedicated to promoting collaborations with designers, artists, and communities to create free public art has partnered with menswear designer Michael Bastian and artist Bittertang to create a pop-up shop in NYC. Bittertangs winning design proposal will be located in a pier. Once inside the warehouse you'll see a 20' tall pile of hay. It's going to look surreal. The pop-up shop will be quite a sight as you enter through a tunnel and come in to the first space, the waxed room. The room will be completely covered in wax and objects will be encased therein. If that wasn't enough, after the waxed room there will be a second room where you'll find most of the Michael Bastian FW13 collection. This space will be draped in ticking fabric to counterpoint the waxed room. Come November, you'll just have to go and discover the space for yourself.

Below are some pictures I took and floor plan of the design.

These pictures were taken by me at a special preview of the pop-up shop at the Hotel Americano.
