NOSTALGIA WEEK: DAY 2
No, this is not the flyer for a new show at a fresh new design gallery in town. It's the flyer for an old show—a 5-year-ago show— in a long-dead design gallery that was a decade or two too early for Denver. P Design Gallery, in part of the space now occupied by Studio Como on Walnut, owned and operated by Paul and Pifuka Hardt. For this show, our debut as DoubleButter, they paired us with Tord Boontje, who of course was too international and too fancy-pants to even show up. Why did they pair us? Our guess is that Paul offered us the show before Mr. Boontje's minions got around to accepting an earlier invitation. Once we had both said yes, what choice did he have? For the record, we stole the show, no question. Here on the flyer, made months in advance of the show opening, are prototype versions of our Roadrunner chair and Armadillo coffee table, plus, oddly, an end bracket from our Elephant dining table suspended overhead. More nostalgic posts for as long as the feeling lasts.
