With the brand new adidas POD-S3.1 releasing next month, the Three Stripes has announced the opening of Factory 55, a temporary creative studio located in the heart of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood.
This new space will offer a communal approach to design by hosting a series of public workshops and open lab sessions led by an alternating roster of local artists, musicians and designers, and will foster an exchange of ideas and perspectives through creative collaboration. Featured creative contributors consist of Fool's Gold, Morning Breath, Joe Freshgoods, A-Trak, Luke Tadashi, Procell and many more, and in addition to workshops, a Pop-up retail space for area creatives to sell their wares will be available, along with a Better Together art exhibition featuring graffiti and street art, as well as a merch customization studio.
Factory 55 will be open to the public from August 2 through August 5, and will also offer seminars in both zine and poster making, a neighborhood photography session, a "how-to" tutorial on silk-screening T-shirts and more.
