Mint Design take over Designist, George’s St. 24 May – 3 June 2012 to launch furniture range. Designist on George’s Street will host Mint Design’s takeover of the shop from 24 May – 3 June 2012 to launch their inaugural product range.
As one of Designist’s series of ‘Uproar’ pop-up shops, Mint will encourage Cultural Quarter shoppers to take a break on their Tod Stool and enjoy the sensation of the cleverly designed cushion. Mint’s unique style of furniture lends itself perfectly to interaction and conversation.
The giveaway, dubbed Blue Steel for the Blue Stool invites members of the public to upload photos of their best ‘Blue Steel’ pose to Facebook.com/DesignByMint in order to win a one-off, special edition designer stool, which will be on show during the pop-up-shop in Designist.
The stool will be on sale in Designist from the 24th May along with other furniture and gardenware items from Mint Design. The call for ‘Blue Steel’ poses is open now and one lucky person will be announced as the winner of the limited edition stool during the launch party on Thurday, 24th May.
“We wanted to do something fun and interactive to reflect the playful nature of our designs. People love to sit on these stools, so we decided that the event should be centered around that” says Jack Connolly of Mint Design, a new and ambitious young design house based in Dublin.
Mint Design was created in 2011 and this is the first line of their own products. The ethos of the company is to create objects that intrigue and excited. Mint Design was established in 2011 by three young industrial design graduates with the goal of producing inventive, and affordable consumer products that have a unique take on function and are highly desirable. The focus of this range has been using recycled materials and local manufacturing facilities in new and creative ways that result in products that are first and foremost desirable, while also being environmentally sound.
