Sunday May 26 the bastard store is in the Open House Milano IV Edizione program, closing the Milano Arch Week. Open House Milano is a whole weekend dedicated to public and private buildings with a relevant footprint in architecture, supported by dedicated and volunteer guides.
Recently we re-converted the bastard store’s foyer into a legit ‘skateshop’. A skatewall consisting of larch wooden racks showcases 140 decks on sale.
These racks have been designed by our friends from the milanese architecture studio binocle and are made out of upcycled wood from our previous flooring, the racks are self-illuminating and can be dismantled and folded on the occasion, restoring the original entrances of the old cinema’s gallery.
Seems like it’s true that a good project never ends as the development is continuous.
p.s we are working on adding all the skate stuff to our online store, currently only a small part is visible online, come visit us in via Slataper 19 in Milano for the full set.
On Wednesday January 11th we had a big party in our headquarters to present the new bastard, Electric, Jart, DVS, Lakai, Matix and Makia Fall Winter 2012-13 collections and a brand new DealerZine, that represents a big step forward compared to the previous ones! During the party we also inaugurated the new binocle working space… unfortunately we couldn’t document the opening due to a generalized state of dumbness, partially related to an overall abuse of a freaking awesome unfiltered wine ;)

Friend and architect Lorenzo Bini has a new firm called binocle and we’re looking forward to collaborate on a few very interesting projects…
The firm binocle is launching today an open contest for illustrating the mega chalk board that will camp in his latest project: Spazio 33, wine-bar cafeteria located inside a beautiful park in Oleggio (NO). If you are a writer, illustrator, cartoonist or you simply think you could do a good job send your illustrations as the project seriously deserves it!
P.S. Do they really want to create an innovative skateable path inside the park too?
