Virgil Abloh & Ben Kelly Create Nightclub Installation in London
Working with the famed Hacienda designer.
Virgil Abloh has teamed up with Ben Kelly again to launch a new installation called “Ruin.” The space is part of a series of commissions by The Store x The Vinyl Factory and is hosted in London’s Store Studios. Kelly famously worked on the Hacienda and we spoke with Abloh last year about how he first discovered the architect:
“Ben Kelly’s work is an aesthetic that I ironically found after I started my aesthetic. But the intersection of what his work in club spaces has meant, meant that I wanted to do a project together to highlight that. It’s just a way of thinking, it’s an aesthetic from an architectural point of view.”
The space is open from November 14-18.

Elsewhere, the interest around “THE TEN” collaboration continues, with a Nike x Virgil Abloh cap surfacing recently.
