May I Ask a Question?…

…this exciting project for Pulsate, a small tile showroom in London’s Primrose Hill, by LIly Jencks and Nathanael Dorent gets my heart pumping…for reasons other than you might think.  Uber-creative and wildly imaginative, Jencks and Dorent have teamed up and fitted out a tile showroom in London to look like a psychedelic cartoon.  I love it…

Drawing inspiration from the mind-boggling images of Op Art and Gestalt psychology, the tiles are laid out in a zigzagging pattern that warps perspective at the back of the space.

and in I go…no doubt, I would be drawn in by this masterpiece…

“We had the idea of a shop not being only a functional space for consumption, but more about architecture and adventure,” said Dorent. “The floor is sloped, and benches are built into the structure, so you’re never really sure what you’re looking at.”

…and this is where I imagine I could end up if I walk through this mind-bending execution of tile…

…and, may I ask a question?  Can anyone explain to me why I feel sea-sick when I walk under The Bean?

Go Ahead…

I am officially in ‘hunting and gathering mode’ with the holiday season upon us.  What will make me bundle up and expend physical energy to purchase gifts instead of drinking hot cocoa in my living room and ordering gifts online?  The windows of retail shops, the experience of the season…go ahead…make my day…entice me to enter…
