Kumanokoido and Bodega have teamed up to create hand crafted teddy bears using hand selected fabrics from unique vintage pieces from brands like Bodega, Adidas and Nike.
A journey to Mali & Burkina Faso in West Africa in 2011 inspired Kumanokoido founder Junichi Nakane to start this unique project which keeps him connected to West Africa. Proceeds from Kumanokoido will build additional water wells in West Africa to improve villagers’ daily life.

“Continuum is a creative call and response between Sofia Mattioli and Brit music vanguards Jamie xx, Four Tet and Koreless, and the Spanish experimentalist John Talabot. The London-based artist and writer presented her performative silent film made with long-time collaborator Rebecca Salvadori to the four kings of understated electronic music, who in turn wrote an original score inspired by each contiguous two-minute visual excursion, with somewhat Kubrick-ian results.”
Each track from Continuum is available for free download HERE.

Tectonics of Transparency is a glass structure made by Cristina Parreño Alonso Architecture. Its geometry changes in appearance according to the position of the viewer. The architectural installation aims to generate high compressive strength as a vehicle to produce spatial environments that are specific to the glass medium. The use of glass as the only material touches on issues of perception, privacy, transparency, light and opacity. In turn, the artifact has the potential to exude multiple interpretations.
