Japanese interior design firm Wonderwall recently checked out KAWS' Brooklyn studio, and decided to give the public a glimpse into the workspace of one of this generation's most talked about artists.
Ambiance of a Gallery
The quaint Brooklyn studio rests behind a facade of brick and steel, with the pristine aspects of its exterior reflecting the style and production of the author that calls it home. It only gets cleaner. A stark white interior accented by steel throughout creates the ambiance of a gallery or museum rather than a workspace.
The additional work hung on the walls throughout the space, by both Kaws and other artists, adds to the gallery feel as well. Were it not for the tables in the center and rack of paints and other varying supplies hung on the walls, you'd almost forget that this is were a place of production rather than exhibition.
Spacious and Bright
The studio occupies a vast space, and Kaws could easily get caught up just checking out his own work. However, he and Wonderwall made sure there was still space reserved to handle the not so glamorous side of things.
Check out what Wonderwall had to say about what went into the design of the space for KAWS:
This project is the atelier of a Brooklyn-based artist, KAWS. Unlike the solid, brick facade that blends well into the neighborhood, the interior is a vastly open space. This bright, extensive openness illuminated with toplight is a result of the artist’s request to create large paintings under natural light. The appearance is more of a gallery than an atelier, with a simple composition that reduces detail and amplifies openness.
Pretty ill digs if you ask us, which only seems fitting if you know how KAWS rolls. Hit up the good folks at Wonderwall to check out some more pictures of KAWS' studio. We didn't even mention the view he's got from his balcony though.
