Virgil Abloh x Bespoke Ind x Nike Reconstruction Workshop @ Dedece Sydney

Virgil Abloh held a Nike Reconstruction Workshop in the top level of Pop-Up space and those VIP guests lucky enough to have scored an invite got a personal insight into Virgil’s creative process, and got to flex their own creativity when they reconstructed their own pair of Nike kicks – right in front of his eyes.

Invited workshop participants ( and a few very lucky ” Kids” plucked at random from the long line queued out the front ) were each given a pair of Nike Air Force 1’s, some velcro, coloured swoosh’s, hammers and tools to create their own authentic shoes.

Virgil Abloh Signing Nike “Top Ten” Kicks @ Dedece Sydney

Virgil Abloh Signing Nike “Top Ten” Kicks @ Dedece Sydney

On a quiet Darlinghurst street last week, hundreds of young, mostly male Sneakerheads ( many still in their school uniforms having ducked away early from school ) patiently lined up for some 4-6 hours ( even as some light rain fell ) to meet their idol, Virgil Abloh, the introverted Chicago native.

Some of them had even journeyed to Sydney from inter-state to the official Supply ” Pop Up” Store installation space – thus inadvertently becoming the personification of Nike’s most fundamental principle: ‘Just Do It’.

All those in line were in high spirits, hoping to have their Abloh x Off-White iterations of the Nike “Top Ten” kicks autographed by Virgil

Knoll Workplace Research Report – Immersive Planning

Knoll’s latest Workplace study, reveals a workplace that is dramatically different than one of just a generation ago.

Comfortable furnishings and fluid boundaries characterize this group-based workplace where the actions of the people themselves define the space.

The result: an environment that creates a variety of experiences, transforming at a moment’s notice and evolving with use.
