Hem Pops Up In San FranciscoAuthor:Abigail Stone
Swedish furniture designer Hem, which opened their first US shop in Los Angeles last year, goes north for November.
Hem, the Stockholm-based design brand, comes to the Hayes Valley until December 2nd. The store, conceptualized by Los Angeles-based designer Jonathan Olivares, draws inspiration from Venice’s iconic surf and skate culture. Alongside new and existing Hem pieces, including the Kumo Sofa by Anderssen & Voll, Last Stool by Max Lamb and Hai Chair by Luca Nichetto, there will be site-specific elements, including room dividers designed by Olivares and legendary surfboard shapers Scott Anderson and Skip Engblom and signage, painted by local artist in a handstyle that draws from San Francisco graffiti and sign paintings.
“As one of the premier global direct-to-consumer design brands, we’ve had our sights set on doing a pop up in San Francisco for some time,” says CEO and Founder Petrus Palmér. “We also wanted our first foray into this market to be reflective of the vibrancy of the local community, so enlisting Jonathan to create a California-inspired shop made perfect sense.”
Hem Pop-Up, 149 Gough Street, San Francisco, CA. 11 AM – 7 PM (Sundays 11 AM – 5 PM)
