Linus Karlsson co-found THE STORE in NYC, featuring Tom Dixon May 14

Linus Karlsson, Brian DiLorenzo, Tara DeVeaux and Brad Blondes, Partners of MING Utility and Entertainment Group, announce the grand opening of THE STORE, a design and retail destination located at 25 Peck Slip in lower Manhattan. Rooted in the timeless heritage of the storefront as community connecting point, The Store is a physical space for new and interesting ideas, products, projects, people, art and inventions.

THE STORE’s inaugural event “MING Meets Tom Dixon” will take place on May 14, 2015 and will be attended by the celebrated British designer, with select products from his new accessory collection available for purchase.

“We’ve been fans of Tom and his mind, his eyes and his hands for a long time,” said Karlsson. “Having Tom as the first artist is our way to set the bar for our vision for THE STORE, which is to provide a place where people can discover and purchase incredible work and meet extraordinary makers.”

"As conventional retail auto-destructs and the lines between designers, manufacturers, communicators and merchants blur,” said Dixon, “the modern design entrepreneur finds new spaces and fresh places to demonstrate and explain their work. This is where MING comes in."
