Own Magazine and Issey Miyake have teamed up to create ‘Laundromat,’ an exhibition in Osaka. The designer’s store in Japan has been converted into a launderette come art gallery for some of the magazine’s hot editorial photographs.
The walls of the boutique have been covered with rows of images of washing machines and clothes dryers for the exhibition. Enlarged photos from New York coin laundries and village clotheslines authenticate the laundromat feel.
Miyake has also designed a drawstring-topped bag with the OWN logo for the occasion. It’s perfect for carrying your laundry, or designer duds you may happen to buy.
The show runs until December 25th 2008.
