The Factory | This Week
“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” – Aristotle
Here is what we have going on this week, Monday, April 13 – Friday, April 17:
Be sure to join us on Monday, April 13 for the next installment of our On Design Makeshift conversation, presenting Little Forest + Biophilic Design. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Little Forest is dedicated to bringing the magic of the forest into everyday urban life through small-scale, sustainable design. In their presentation, they will explore theory, highlight the key principles of biophilic design, and offer a variety of small-scale, DIY projects, including terrariums, that allow participants to incorporate more natural, biophilic design projects into their own home.
$7 includes admission and participation to the conversation, and a cup of coffee or tea. Reserve your seat now.
Our Pop-Up Store at lf8 is back open now through May 22, 2015. The store features a selection of one-of-a-kind indigo pieces, A. Chanin, and a special selection of home goods, accessories, and more. Alabama Chanin will also be hosting a series of events and conversations at lf8 in the coming month.
