Published:

Bringing together the design motifs of two cultures, Little Italy’s Modmatter, curated by Louise Girling (pictured), will host its first exhibition, Span: From Mexico to Portland, featuring architectural firm Manada and ceramist Lilith Rockett. The show incorporates innovative home décor and furniture pieces from Manada, led by Katerina Alatzia and Alejandro Tapia, including the Wirt, a multi-purpose carry-all, and the award-winning 42 Bed, a solid wood daybed that doubles as a desk. Also on display are Rockett’s minimalist and utilitarian-style porcelain bowls, cups, and plates. The pieces—all of which are for sale—will be on view through the end of May, by appointment. 2064 Kettner Boulevard, Little Italy
