STORE OF THE MONTH: IBIKI / MONTRÉAL

It sounds a little like Jonah Leslie, the owner of Montréal-based ibiki, kind of slowly grew into running a store that is never ‘finished’.

STORE OF THE MONTH: KM– KÜNSTLERHAUS / GRAZ

Austria and Germany have a beautiful tradition of the Kunstverein, or ‘art clubs’ – semi-independent art institutions that are state-funded but smaller and more flexible than large museums, closer to the local art scenes and focusing on lesser-known artists. Since 2013, the smallish Austrian city of Graz boasts its very own and very smart Künstlerhaus, [...]
