Style and Culture

As the age old stereotype of L.A. 'the City of Angels’ featuring beachwear, Botox and botched peroxide hair is fast subsiding, a growing number of new wave designers, creatives and influential tastemakers are dubbing the Californian capital both their workplace and their home.

Over recent years Los Angeles has become a hub of both physical and creative growth. With the extension of the Metro’s Expo Line, both residents and tourists alike can ride from Downtown all the way to Santa Monica with ease. The additional line expansions are planned that will provide easy access to upcoming areas such as Little Tokyo and the fashion-forward La Brea. This provides easy access to new dining, shopping and art destinations with ease.

Q / Where did we go?

The city has also been graced with three new museums providing a plethora of inspiration. The Broad, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler is located in Downtown LA close to the Moca (Museum of Contemporary Art), plus the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel Gallery which is also in Downtown.

 

In addition, the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale, which encourages learning, expression and curiosity through the preservation,collection and interpretation of neon and electric art. These developments have positioned L.A as a front-runner with regards to emerging design movements and a source of inspiration for our product designs and trend analysis.
