CB2 windows: counter culture

We began this concept of counter culture windows as a simple collection of high dining tables and barstools accented by spray paint poetry written on a back-drop of fabric and mirrors.

The patterns—with a clashing florescent paint color—added kind of that apocalyptic or anti-establishment or “counter culture” look we thought would be eye-catching.

After executing the first two windows the third one was becoming trickier. It was hard to see any detail in the barstools because their seats were at eye level and they all looked like a bunch or metal legs.

Then I decided in order to show some of the seat top detail I should just angle and stack them into that sort of installation jumble that YES has been done before. Although, with the spray paint this window kinda just turned into this a hotel room that a punk rocker has trashed—with the fabric working as tacky wallpaper.

Man do we Love LA!
