In an interesting move, everyone’s favorite art toy-makers/villains, MINDstyle, has purchased licensing rights to The Bombay Company, that bamboo beacon of 1990s mall culture. As you can see above, they even mindstyled their SDCC 2011 booth as a respectful and peaceful oasis among all the craziness. “How just like their business practices!” shouted no artist who has ever worked with the formerly LA-based company.
MINDstyle is currently offering a subscription service for monthly shipments of bamboo, ferns and Chinese benches. Don’t let that shoji screen hit you on the way out, guys!
