Playground opened yesterday to much fanfare. What might have been mistaken outside as lines for a club, the 'inspiration store' features some of the familiar names in fashion, furniture, home design, and with separate sections for books, food, coffee and music. It's quite an ambitious project and i'll write more about it later. It sort of reminds me of Urban Outfitters, but more modern than punk, more prefab than dyi, and definitely more Baht than barter. What might be a interesting development is their allotment of space to fine arts, where yesterday artist Sakarin Krue-on exhibited his new video art installation. more to come on this.
