POP UP HOME
A space for selling unique products and socializing
We supported the implementation of the Pop-up store (October – November 2012), which is an initiative of young Slovenian artists in the field of design, to perform with a common vision and in a common space by offering design and technologically advanced products of their own production. In this way, the products have greater potential and represent to the public a clear overview of the quality of modern domestic design and in the long run mean the establishment of the Slovenian creative industry as an important part of culture and economy.
Following the example of the concept from the 1960s, “Slovenian apartment”, where Slovenian furniture companies cooperated once a year and fully equipped a “prototype” apartment, they also furnished an apartment in a prominent location in the center of Ljubljana. For a period of one month, they set up a space for sales and socializing.
The exhibition was accompanied by culinary events, lectures, screenings, concerts, recitals, etc. Pop-up Dom has always acted as a ‘coworking’ space. Thus, the store became a place for socializing, collaborating, educating and exchanging ideas. During the project, new forms of networking and collaboration began to emerge, as well as the creation of new multidisciplinary groups, such as design and cuisine, organization and creative activities. The project promoted entrepreneurship and self-initiative projects of young people from all fields. Pop-Up Dom was actively created by the Rompom Institute, the Šiška Creative Zone, the Heda Institute, Coworking Slovenia, ZEK and many others.
