The Standard / O.H.W.O.W.
So while you are in Miami soaking up the sun go check out this new store. OHWOW has partnered with The Standard, Miami Beach to create a new retail store that will carry a selection of curated products including exclusively published art books and select art in addition to accessories, jewelry, beachwear, gifts and hotel guest essentials. More deets after the jump….Both OHWOW Gallery and The Standard Hotels have cultivated a community of artists who both exhibit work and design custom products who will be represented in the new space, including Tim Barber, Scott Campbell, Julia Chiang, Dan Colen, Luis Gispert, KAWS, Terence Koh, Andrew Kuo, Ari Marcopolous, José Parlá, Agathe Snow, Julia Ziegler-Haynes among others.
The STND/OHWOW space is designed by acclaimed architect Rafael de Cárdenas. True to his signature approach of incorporating unusual materials and highly graphic touches in his retail projects, de Cárdenas has created a space that is unmistakably OHWOW and yet complements the holistic and relaxed atmosphere of The Standard Spa. A restrained palette of glossy white and hits of turquoise permeate throughout the space, with recessed pyramidal wedges and glass-top triangular black columns that serve as impactful pedestals for editions and merchandise.
The STND/OHWOW shop will open during Art Basel Miami Beach on December 1st with a series of book signings and events that will continue through 2011.
