Skate Study House Opening Reception @ BLENDS LA

BLENDS in Downtown Los Angeles played host last night for the opening reception of the Skate Study House. Skate Study House is a project that utilizes skateboard decks, wheels, wheel bearings, and other various materials to recreate iconic and timeless furniture pieces found in Case Study Houses. Los Angeles boasts the largest quantity of these influential houses that were built between 1945 and 1966, so it is fitting to see this collection make it to LA. There was a strong turnout for the event hosted by its designer, Gil Le Bon De Lapointe, Sole Technology CEO, Pierre Andre Senizergues, and the crew at BLENDS LA. Drinks provided by Smartwater and Vitaminwater were flowing as DJ Greyboy played tunes for the attendees to enjoy throughout the night. Dance Right at La Cita hosted the after party where the large crowd ultimately relocated until last call commenced prompting the end of the night’s festivities. The show will be running for the next week. All pieces are fully functional and for sale throughout the duration of the showing at BLENDS.
