This September, The Wire will be curating a listening room at the central London shop of the furniture designers Vitsoe as part of the London Design Festival
For the listening room, the magazine’s editor Chris Bohn will compile a playlist of new music from the Japanese underground, which visitors to the shop will be able to access online and listen to in situ. Meanwhile, the room’s shelving will be stocked with a selection of vinyl, CDs and small press music publications for visitors to listen to and browse. Beverages will be served by Postcard Teas.
Vitsoe, which is known for making the furniture designed by the pioneering German industrial designer Dieter Rams, is based at 3–5 Duke Street, London W1. The listening room will be open between 19–27 September, Mon to Sat 10am-6pm, Sun 11am-4pm.
