Danish glasses brand Ace & Tate just launched their newest pop-up store in Cologne. I took the chance to check out their designs and attended the (pre*)opening at Pop;68.
Ace & Tate have taken over the gallery rooms for the time of their pop-up’s being but did not ditch the art. In fact with each store this brand assumes a close cooperation with an artist.
In Hamburg their choice fell on Nigin Beck whose Iranian inspired art is very lovable and for Cologne it became Stefan Marx. He created some great summery watermelon pastels which went on to become wall paper at the store. If you happen to visit, the contrast between the bright interior and the black and teal exterior walls will wow you deeply and surely lure you the more inside.
*The preopening two weeks ago was nice, too. A little less crowded so you could chat with everyone and play around more. They even brought along Sushi, a sweet dog which in some way has become a mascot for the Ace&Tate people.
