A Store of DIS’s Own
Last Thursday night, at the same time as mischievous art collective The Bruce High Quality Foundation held the opening for their last Brucennial (or so they claim), the editors of the Internet magazine DIS, which has a similarly irreverent attitude, opened up DISown, their first brick-and-mortar store, offering slightly twisted diffusion lines by the likes of red-hot label Hood By Air (salad bowls), artist Bjarne Melgaard (beanbag chair), and artist Lizzie Fitch (mobile planters). Along with curator Agatha Wara, Fitch designed a retail environment inside the Red Bull Studios in Chelsea that is a perversion of the shopper’s expectations, just like the witty products they’re offering. Here, a few of our favorites.
