Thanks to David and Hi-Jin with Hodgepictures down there on the coast. This was something they kindly did last year, it's been on show at P Design Gallery this year and also down at DWR, can be seen on your old u uu tube too.
Here's to more days ahead this year smashing Designer goods.
especially the classics, slay your idols.
We got...well, lucky in the months edition of Lucky Magazine with an article entitled appointment-only stores. Citizen-citizen, its proprietor Philip Wood, and two of its biggest designers- Fredriksonstallard and Tobias Wong are seen as some of Lucky's "secret sources" showcasing such exclusive goods as Unit #3 Diptych, the Ming Vases, and Bolt Vase. They also mention Table #2.
Friday's Destination and Diversions section of USA Today gets into the possibilities of decorating. Its said that out side the box may be a good place to think if your confident about it. Tobais' rubber dipped chandelier by yours truly Citizen-Citizen is shown in the article as a bold decorating mixer.
This month, we managed to get a two-page spread of our products from ICFF in Elle Decoration Hong Kong. They featured Candle #1, Table #1, Rubber-dipped chandelier, Cable Vase, Dragon Vase,
Unit #3 Monochrome and our Bulletproof Rose. Since Chinese is a hard language to interpret, and I have been studying it for many years, I'll interpret the best part of the article for all of you.
"Young Philip Wood, 24, is the creative director and owner of Citizen:citizen in San Francisco. His chiseled bone structure and five o'clock shadow charm the ladies and his baby soft skin and manicured eyebrows have brought Citizen into over 30 retailers nationwide but this Brit is all about business, as demonstrated by his pensive look."
The article later goes on to talk about his washboard abs and bulging biceps but I won't bore you with the details.
p.s. Somewhere they fit in some talk of the products.
In case any of you have been living under a rock and don't know who Charles & Marie are, let me help you out. As their sign reads, they are "The Quintessential Lifestyle Navigator." Their site features all kinds of fun stuff to lust after. In this pic, you can make out our Ballistic Rose, Cokespoon 01, Cokespoon 02, and our lovely "Fuck Design" vibrator. Since we are a part of any lifestyle worth living in, they picked us up ages ago.
Let me paint a picture. You're sitting down for a drink after you get home from work, you pour the ice in the glass, add in the necessary ingredients, and reach into the glass to stir it up a bit with your finger. Little did you know that we have between 2 and 10 million bacteria between our fingertips and elbow and they stay alive for up to three hours.
In today's tumultuous, war-ridden society, it's nice to know that people like Tobias Wong are out there creating design that makes us think. Now if only we could use our power for good rather than evil...
House & Garden Magazine just published its September issue for 2006. Tobias Wong is on a roll this summer; his rubber dipped Chandelier hangs on yet another page of a spot for high quality and fashionable design. The editors give an interior design suggestion, setting the chandelier against "color drenched walls" sounds dipping and dripping hot.
David Mcintyre from Zoozoom called us the other day for a voice over, and made a movie treat for us, to him and his team a huge thanks.
This is no longer just about style, it's about meaning.
we love you Zoozoom.
Tobias Wong is shown here on the cover of 002 Magazine with one of his gold pills, which he designed in collaboration with Ju$t Another Rich Kid. Inside, there are pictures from our show in Peel Gallery last month. All of our products, as well as Tobias himself, came out to show Houston that Citizen knows how to FUCK design.
