1-800-SLOWDOWN ft. POP UP DESIGNER OTHRSPACE

WHEN 1-800-SLOW DOWN CALLS, OTHRSPACE ANSWERS! IN THIS FUN COLLABORATION BETWEEN OLD AND NEW FRIENDS, A WEEKEND OF VIDEO GAMES, FURNITURE, INTERACTION, AND ZINES TOOK PLACE AT GOOD MOTHER GALLERY LOCATED IN DOWN TOWN OAKLAND. THE SHOW FEATURED IMPORTED VINTAGE JAPANESE MAGAZINES, TOTES, & T-SHIRTS BY 1-800-SLOWDOWN, AND A GAME AREA WITH CUSTOM TILED 16"X16"X16" SEATS. THESE SEAT WERE DESIGNED AND FABRICATED BY FURNITURE AND POP UP DESIGNER AMANDA SWAIN FROM OTHRSPACE.

THESE TILE SEATS WERE MADE TO BE USED IN VARIOUS WAYS DURING THE SHOW. WHEN APART, THEY FUNCTION INDIVIDUALLY AND SINGLE STOOLS, BUT WHEN THEY ARE PUT TOGETHER YOU ARE LEFT WITH A FUN BENCH THAT CAN SEAT THREE. WHEN THINKING ABOUT HOW PEOPLE MAY USE THE SPACE, THE IDEA OF A BENCH THAT COULD SEPARATE AND BE USED IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE POP UP ONE DAY AND THEN ARRAIGNED DIFFERENTLY THE NEXT WAS THE CONCEPT BEHIND THE DESIGN PROCESS AMANDA WENT THROUGH AND WHY SHE ENJOYS WORKING ON SEMI PERMANENT TYPES OF DESIGN, AND BEING A POP UP DESIGNER IS SOMETHING SHE THOROUGHLY ENJOYS, AND WAS OVERJOYED WHEN SHE WAS INVITED TO BE A COLLABORATOR IN THIS SHOW.

SEATS FROM THE SHOW ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR RENT, AND NEW SEATS CAN BE FABRICATED UPON REQUEST. THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY OF BEING A POP UP DESIGNER, AND IN THIS CASE UNDERSTANDING THE FUNCTION OF THE SPACE AND THE NEED FOR A FLEXIBLE SEATING SOLUTION WAS THE PERFECT FIT.
