The Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016 promises a lot that you can take away in terms of the experience of contemporary art, but you’ll also need a more tangible takeaway, as a souvenir of your trip to Kochi. Enter The Nicobar Edit, one of our patrons, who’ll be opening a pop-up shop at David Hall, Fort Kochi, for a two-month period from December 12.
The Nicobar Edit is a Mumbai-based design studio, one that, in an age where brick-and-mortar stores are rapidly going out of fashion, lays emphasis on the physical space as a sensory experience for its customers. The pop-up shop, 10 yards in length and 4 in breadth, is spread under a white tent with tropical fronds, creating a very holistic experience where the mood is one of relaxation and wanderlust. The interior is pieced together like a series of vignettes, and corners are punctuated with products designed for your home and wardrobe, inviting you to linger as long as you like.
Firm in its belief that good design is for everyone, The Nicobar Edit is sure to find itself at home during the Kochi Biennale, with its rich presence of art and culture, the very ethos upon which the design studio has built its brand.
A mix of textures, lighting, and moods, The Nicobar Edit’s third stop is Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016.
