Melbourne’s Pan After held a One Day Shop the library of Hotel Hotel. They hauled up a collection of carefully sourced and curated objects from around the world. Pan After focus on ethically produced goods and consider not only the aesthetic value of an item but also the process by which it is made, who it is made by and the materials used.
For us, architecture is perpetually unfinished, defined by the people who use it rather than by the people who created it. So that is why from time to time we changed our library at Hotel Hotel into a shop. A few times a year we asked friends who run shops that we like to come in and take over the library, transforming it to a one-day shop.
