Voyager, San Fran: The Makeshift Mentality
New San Francisco art gallery-cum-clothing boutique Voyager – overflowing with witty interior touches – has been designed with the kind of makeshift mentality that has become increasingly popular with recessionary era, cash-strapped retailers (such as Henry Vibskov, New York and Alternative Apparel, LA).
The store, owned by US entrepreneur Robert Patterson, is divided into two sections: clothing and products from local retailers Revolver fashion and Mollusk surf shop sit on one side, while art exhibitions run by local gallery Michael Rosenthal Art Gallery sit on the other.
The Revolver section of the store, designed by photographer Adam Lam, has been constructed using wood from an old farmhouse, while Mollusk’s offerings are housed in a patchwork submarine structure designed by artists John McCambridge and Jay Nelson.
