Last weekend we hosted Oji Masanori, and Mr. and Mrs. Hira of Studio Prepa for our latest exhibition “ISSHO”.

We had the opening party on Saturday, and the public viewing all day Sunday. We hope you enjoy the photos we took!

We picked up some big bottles of Ontario brewed sake from the Distillery district and kept them cool in this cypress wood bucket. All the sake was consumed within the first 30 minutes, but we still had plenty of beer left!

A big thank you to Oji Masanori, Takuya Matsuo, and Studio Prepa for traveling all the way to our store for the opening. I think the concept of ISSHO -together- was felt by everyone that night.

Thank you for everyone that visited the exhibition! Next up is the Design Crawl on Friday, I hope to see you there!
