Ltd. Store is a series of Universal Works’ pop-ups around the world.
Our plan for the project is to open new retail spaces that are an extension of UW stores where we can directly meet new customers while supporting our local stockists by spreading the word of who we are and what we do.
The first stop for Ltd Store was Tokyo, with two consecutive pop-up stores opening in Shibuya region of the city, stocking a select range of Universal Works’ favourite pieces along with special exclusives like pottery from Leach and collaborations from Barbour, Novesta, John Smedley and Commono Reproducts.
Universal Works designer David K headed over to help set up and work for the opening event but really we just think he went out there for the free fish and chips, Nottingham Brewery Pale Ale, and 200 Degrees coffee that was served in the store. The word David was it was great spending time in the store meeting up with local stockists, friends and customers old and new, so thank you to everyone who made it down and made the experience so special.
Next up for Ltd. Store is a six-week long collaborative pop-up that will take place in Small store, Paris later this month. And then who knows where. Watch this space.
