Playmountain East

Open now

In late February 2017, the Boiler Room will host Japan’s legendary design store and curator, Playmountain for a year-long series of programs featuring Japanese and Japanese-influenced artists and makers — Playmountain East. The year will include work in a variety of media, including iron, wood, ceramics, and fashion; a spotlight program on regional craft; and a special series on the work of Japanese women artists and artisans.

Since its inception Landscape Products has been inspired by California: its architecture and design, arts and crafts, music, and films. In other words, we have always been excited by the cultural breeze that blows from there.

This is why we have named our new retail venture in San Francisco Playmountain East. Even though we are across the Pacific from each other, we are close neighbors of heart and mind. Please keep watching kindly over us as we begin our journey "East.”



Upcoming

Knife / Fork / Spoon: Modernist Flatware from the Collection of Dung Ngo

Begins June 25, 2016

No one tells the story of modernist flatware design better than designer, author, editor, and publisher Dung Ngo whose twin passions of 20th century design and design books form the foundation for Knife / Fork / Spoon, the latest exhibit to come to the Boiler Room at Heath SF. Drawn from his extensive flatware collection, Knife / Fork / Spoon combines flatware design from the 1920s to the present, including designs by Eliel Saarinen, Gio Ponti, and Achille Castiglioni presented atop Dung’s other passion: vintage design and photography books. Beautiful on their own, Dung’s pairing of flatware and books tells the story of 20th century design in a thoroughly unexpected, original way.

Dung will also curate a collection of rare design books from San Francisco book-selling legend William Stout, which will be for sale in the Boiler Room during the course of the show.

Knife / Fork / Spoon begins on June 25th, 2016 with an opening reception and talk between Dung and Heath Clay Studio Director Tung Chiang. The reception will run from 4–6 pm with the conversation between Tung and Dung from 4:30 to 5 pm. RVSP here.
