Pehache, Buenos Aires
Drawing on both the recent resurgence of homely crafts and projects with a distinctly community-based angle (see the Stylus reports Galleries in Disguise, Music & Retail and Fluxshop, Stockholm) sisters Carolina and Mariana Medina have opened Pehache – a store championing local creativity – in the bohemian neighbourhood of Palermo in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Located in a converted townhouse, the store was envisioned as a place to inspire and presents a holistic space to stimulate the senses. There is a café and gallery space, as well as the store, selling an eclectic mix of vintage and locally designed products including lamps, pottery, furniture and textiles. Pehache also hosts workshops, talks and special courses run by local designers.
