update: 12 nov. 2020
Atelier S P A C E | Hồ Chí Minh is led by HCM-based chef-photographer Văn Trần, whose visioning has taken us in fresh directions.
Now, we are making handmade pieces like art books incorporating natural elements and traditional Vietnamese (đó giấy) papers.
Văn Trần‘s work in preparing meals as well as designing our new collections of art books is inspired by the same ethos: natural, fresh ingredients and a heartfelt creative process.
Through making, with that intention, the maker invests authentic feeling can set the table for an experience guests and readers can truly cherish. Our Summer 2020 collection of artworks is thus titled, ‘Keep It.’ setting the table for an experience guests can cherish.
Recently the Atelier S P A C E // HCMC team co-created the issues: S P A C E | Sài Gòn, Một Buổi Tối Mát Nẻ / A Cool Evening and S P A C E | Sài Gòn, Ngay Bây Giờ. You can see these, and S P A C E | Sài Gòn, Street Museums (a fun collaboration with Ilyas Kassam) at: http://gumroad.com/designkompany.
It is embedded in a bigger international conversation, as Atelier S P A C E is a popup, roving international workshop to make something new and original out of stories discovered on the spot, with the creative people whom our team meets while observing and note-taking to write stories that as authentic as we can find.
Atelier S P A C E is currently based since February in Vietnam.
About Atelier S P A C E // Hồ Chí Minh City..
Design, poetry, writing, and co-creation. These are the elements of Atelier S P A C E. Atelier S P A C E is a popup, roving international workshop to make zines, on the spot, with the creative people whom our team discovers when we just… show up to see what happens. Sometimes, it’s fascinating and we stay put for a while. That’s what’s happening in HCMC.
It’s emerging what will become of this, like all projects in S P A C E, but when you donate, you’re directly contributing to what’s coming into shape right here, on the ground, where we are. Support our efforts to bring out all-new styles of: conversation salons, popup art installations, and co-created issues of S P A C E with creative talents in Hồ Chí Minh. It’s already starting, with small early prototypes. (Ask me for the one-pager). So far, so good. More about Atelier S P A C E and what we have been making since 2017 is at our crowdfunding page….
