My friends at Nine Yards Studio have been skunkworking away for months now, inside a sonically-isolated design shop floating inside the courtyard of their headquarters on Fitzroy Street, on a project that seeks to take their considerable skills dealing with Big Things into the world of Small Things.
When they gave me an early tour this winter, I casually referred to the effort, in my affected way, as taking place in their “secret design bunker.”
This week I was overjoyed to receive an invitation to the public launch of the… Secret Design Bunker.
There’s a blog post (emphasis mine, obviously):
Stacked, is the Secret Design Bunker’s first series of design explorations. The series celebrates plywood as a material and experiments with the potential forms it can be used to create. Children curiously stack wood blocks on top of one another; the Secret Design Bunker explored the potential forms of plywood could create with the same sense of curiosity.
And an invite:
And a front page story in The Guardian this morning:
The hatch to the Secret Design Bunker gets opened to public air on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at 12 noon at 63 Fitzroy Street in Charlottetown.
