An AmazingGlassworks Demo at DTLA

DTLA has being experienced huge changes in the past several years from new apartment condos, office buildings, luxury hotels, to shopping venues, one-of-the-kind eat-in kitchens, cool restaurants to  booming art scenes and designs. We are just literally amazed by the creative new things everyday by different artists.

For today’s design world, we cherish hand-made, craftsmanship, organic materials and their applications in a noble ways.  It is always so amusing when seeing how a  group of designers, engineers, fabricators and artists  work together to create an amazing project or piece of art.

We were recently invited to a glassworks demo by Neptune Glassworks  All of the glass materials they use are from labs and recyclable. We were just pretty blown away by how they put up such a stylish party in a totally industrial warehouse and offered such an intricate demo. Their creation of piece of sculpture is just more than amazing.

Visiting Clifton Cafeteria

The newly renovated legendary Clifton Cafeteria was just reopened on Oct. 1st in Downtown, Los Angeles.

Entrepreneur (and Conservancy board member) Andrew Meieran spent four years and millions of dollars to restore and reimagine Clifton’s for a new generation.

He updated the building’s infrastructure and restored historic features, keeping the unique redwood forest-themed interior intact.

We were able to visit this fabulous place last Saturday.  The atmosphere is relaxing, family-friendly.  It looks like a fancy social club.  Here are some photos I love to share:
