    Last Thursday RePopRoom opened their new space collaborating with MAKE / MAKE Skateboards. MAKE x RePopRoom is an exhibition featuring limited edition and one-of-a-kind artist designed skateboards, outsider and contemporary art, vintage pieces, hand crafted bicycles and furniture, and apparel.

    MAKE x RePopRoom is featuring a Damien Hirst print provided by Malcolm Hearn who earned the mystery piece after traveling the world, visiting eleven galleries showing Hirst’s Complete Spot Paintings exhibit.

    RePopRoom, a design house bridging the gap between retail + pop-up shop + showroom, was founded by Megan Mallow and Suzanne Kennedy to offer a fresh alternative to lengthy retail leases, expensive pop-up shops, and isolating showrooms. At its core, RePopRoom is a curated, membership-based community for creative companies and individuals.
