Atelier Ace continues our Thinking Cap series with a visit to Mutato, Mark Mothersbaugh’s creative headquarters. We spent a little time there while he prepared for his first ever solo show at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, and with the help of a few friends from Portland, put together a short video documenting the rituals through which man becomes maker + musician.
Next up in the series is Sword + Fern — more to come soon.

Our creative team Atelier Ace has launched a new series called Thinking Cap — a monthly video-based inquiry into the creative processes of artists we admire. Evan B. Harris is a Portland muralist whose work defines the aesthetic ethos of Ace Hotel Portland — he launches our series today. Next month, we’ll feature Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo and then curator and artist Sword + Fern in August. Stay tuned…

Daikanyama T-Site is a new space in Tokyo that breaks the mold of anything on offer at the moment in the city. Exceptionally well-designed by Klein Dytham, the architects behind Shiseido the Ginza, T-Site features shops, a lounge bar-restaurant, and a large Tsutaya (book shop and media rental). Apart from being an amazing space in itself however, the entire complex goes against the majority of current models as it pushes print over digital, rents movies over the counter, and aims to keep its demographic in touch with the materiality of real life… The three central are T-shaped and the cladding itself is made up of tessellated T’s, all representing the Tsutaya brand. For some reason it evokes the Charles Eames quote “We want to create the best for the most for the least.” A place where you can experience elegance and groundedness in one sitting.
