Founded by Kyle DeWoody and Manish Vora, who worked together on Vora’s contemporary-art website, Artlog (artlog.com), this high-concept boutique aims to make the art world more accessible by curating the creations of local and international artists and designers. The project started out as an e-commerce site and expanded into pop-up shops at Art Basel Miami Beach, L.A.’s Pulse Contemporary Art Fair and a summer spot in the Hamptons. Now the venture has a permanent home in a light-filled Soho loft that doubles as the company’s office. Wearable art pieces are displayed on large tables, including Taiana Design’s horsehair and feather earrings ($120 per earring), Anndra Neen metal cage clutches ($675), and Mara Hoffman bathing suits ($300) printed with works by artists such as Spencer Tunick and John Newsom. Decorate your abode with E.V. Day wall-mounted mummified Barbie doll sculptures ($3,500), Vadis Turner cakes made out of panty hose ($400–$500) and Rebecca Wilson sculptures fashioned from vintage perfume atomizers ($395–$630).
