Launched: Space Cowboy + The Present Future

We wouldn't miss this for anything.  Not even with two hours of traffic from Makati to Ortigas!

Last Friday, after much anticipation, Space Encounter's talented design duo, Wilmer Lopez and Thor Balanon unveiled their 5th collection, aptly called Space Cowboy at their mid-century modern furniture store, Space Encounters.

The collection derives inspiration from the wild, wild west and featured their classic furniture in denim, pin stripes, plaid, leather, studs and patchwork.  Symbols of western pop culture were in the pillows, framed posters, lamps and other home accessories that complement the collection. The Space Cowboy collection also features creative works from menswear designer, Ziggy Savella and Graphic Artists, Mylo de Borja and Kuds Cruz.

Wilmer's book entitled "The Present Future" was also launched last Friday night.  His book features his inspirations and his impressive creative work.

Here are some photos from Friday night's launch:




Love the graphic on the stairs that leads to the store.  It prepares you on what's to come - Space Cowboy!



 




The lobby leading to the store was transformed into a western bar or shall I say, a saloon.  
Love the wooden toy guns reminiscent of the toys we used to play with when we were younger.




While we were in the store, we kept hearing crickets.
I thought they were playing a track of cricket sounds only to find the real deal in the middle of the wooden table.   Hey little fellas!  You were stars in your own right!
