D.S. & DURGA is a niche perfume house founded in Brooklyn, NYC, in 2007 by a musician and an architect, D.S. (David Seth Moltz) and Durga (Kavi Moltz). The couple collect herb and floral essences from all over the world and hand craft them into the most incredible perfumes, inspired by music, literature, poetry, travel, history, and fine art.
We discovered the unique brand a little more than a year ago when we walked into their newly opened boutique at 255 Mulberry Street. We immediately fell in love with the universe they have created around their perfumes, the esthetics, and the unique scents. Our current favorite, I Don't Know What – a fragrance enhancer with a transparent radiance that gives any perfume a certain, as the French say, "I don't know what."
Visit D.S. & DURGA in 255 Mulberry Street SUN—WED 11-7 & THU—SAT 11-8 or online on dsanddurga.com.
CARCEL — Meet the Danish design duo helping imprisoned Peruvian women find their independence. Since they first began their journey, we have been following these ladies and are genuinely inspired by their way of doing business. They just launched a new initiative; REIMAGINE! Check out their 1st drop launching today, May 20, 2020, at 10am CET here!
"REIMAGINE — The current business model of fashion is broken. We are joining the global movement to re-invent. We are cutting ties with the traditional retail model to avoid stock, seasons, and sales. Instead, we'll be launching drops exclusively online and finding new ways to collaborate with physical stores. This means introducing better prices, limited quantities, and the freedom to act beyond seasons. We are committed to progress. No compromise."
Co—Star is probably one of the most hyped astrology apps at the moment. We actually don't really know if we believe in astrology or not. However, we've been following the Co—Start Instagram for some time and somehow enjoy the precise daily suggestions that are written in a fresh, quirky, and sometimes extremely brutal tone in the app - it's hilarious! Some days, it doesn't make sense at all; others, it feels like it could fit anyone, but from time to time, it surprisingly kind of makes sense, and it makes you reflect. With its sleek design and graceful illustrations, it's an amusing source of insight and reflection. You can download the app from the Co—Star website here.
Studio Olafur Eliasson — Olafur Eliasson's is one of our absolute favorite artists. His art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. He strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Eliasson's works span sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installation and not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery. His practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects, interventions in civic space, arts education, policy-making, and issues of sustainability and climate change.
The team at Studio Olafur Eliasson comprises craftsmen, and specialized technicians, architects, archivists, art historians, web and graphic designers, filmmakers, cooks, and administrators – art is never boring with these people! While you're at it, check out their kitchen Instagram, @soe_kitchen, and the website olafureliasson.net.
FRAMA is a multi-disciplinary design brand that creates lifestyle objects that inspire the senses and encourage mindful living. FRAMA's work connects the imaginative and the practical with an emphasis on natural materials, simple geometries, and uncompromising quality, resulting in a uniquely warm and honest aesthetic.
We are inspired by the contrasts and simply love the minimalistic design and the comfortable and cozy feeling we get when visiting the showroom housed in the historic St. Paul's Apotek (established in 1878) in the heart of Copenhagen.
