Sorry Thanks I Love You Westfield

This summer we’ve launched one of our most experimental projects to date: a pop-up made entirely out of foam in the busiest 25 square metres in Westfield Sydney.

Featuring the newest work from one the most influential designers of the century, Issey Miyake, the polystyrene pop-up project is inspired by Miyake’s own signature experimentation with synthetic materials.

Hailed by artists, designers and fashion houses as the grandfather of modern design, Issey Miyake’s fascination with and innovation of man-made materials and production techniques is world-renowned.

The Sorry Thanks I Love You Westfield pop-up has been designed in the same spirit: recontextualising a manufactured material to create a pocket of intrigue in the middle of the CBD.

 

Masquerading as a simple retail pop-up, the installation is custom made from recyclable, high density polystyrene and is the first of its kind in the world. 

The result of weeks of planning, modelling and tweaking in collaboration with architect Michael Flynn and Westfield’s legendary retail design team, the installation is 100% recyclable and will be factory-converted into insulation by a certified EPS recycler upon completion of the project. 

Aside from hosting the hotly anticipated January and February collections from Bao Bao Issey Miyake – much of which has already sold out - the project will also act as a landing pad for the newest work scheduled to arrive from Sorry Thanks I Love You’s existing fashion and design partners in Tokyo over the next six weeks – which means the pop-up will be transformed on a weekly basis.

Part installation, part sculpture and part foam playground, there's no telling how this irresistably tactile pop-up will evolve over the summer.

The pop-up is now open alongside Prada and Miu Miu - and it needs to be touched to be believed.
