Space Encounters

Last night, P and I went to Space Encounters, a furniture store in Ortigas Center by interior designer Wilmer Lopez and his partner Thor Balanon, for the launch of its latest collection of furniture. I first encountered Wilmer’s “Danish retro meets pop Asia” design sensibilities when I interviewed him and Thor to feature their home in Real Living magazine (Jan-Feb 2010). And when they opened their store early this year, I’ve been a fan ever since. Under the theme, “Indochine Remixes,” their latest collection has Mona Lisa wearing a cheongsam, floral fabrics and wallpapers, and lots of other whimsical-quirky pieces that mix Asian and European influences. If ever you find yourself in Ortigas Center and want a dose of pretty, artsy and Asian, stop by Space Encounters.

What a happy, pretty entrance

At the counter, Shakespeare watches over everything

Aside from big furniture pieces and home accessories, there are also a lot of cute notebooks, funky wallets and watches, and even K-pop merchandise. (The owners are fans 🙂 )

What time is it? "It is not too late." Hee.

Knick-knacks and K-pop
