Ian came to the NWBLK just as we were ramping up for the Gallery’s July 19th Preview. The space was an empty shell of the manufacturing building it once was. Our offices were installed, we had painted, but the floor was desolate. NICE did their summer sale a couple weeks later, and I asked Ian, “would you be interested in working on a gallery installation of your design and manufacturing process?” The resulting runway and product display of NICE collective articles (you can purchase at the NWBLK,) gets high marks from all the design enthusiasts that come our way…. A new form of retail experience.
Ian was kind enough to oblige an interview request which took place at the NWBLK….
