You guys, there were POP Tables at Flow (and now you can buy them!)

In case you missed all of our boastings about Flow Festival last week, allow us to fill you in: there were POP Tables e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e. And when we say everywhere we mean that they were on the Lämpö terrace across from the main stage...which is kind of like being everywhere, and was definitely a pretty sweet spot!

During the festival, the Lämpö terrace is the ideal spot to take a seat and have a drink while remaining in the mix of all of the mainstage action. Flow Festival gave us free reign to outfit the Lämpö terrace with our tables, with the goal of making the space as colorful as possible. Bold colors are definitely our jam, but we also know the appeal of classic black and white. So, we designed our Flow tables with a mix of all of our bold POP colors, including some classic black and white on a few surfaces and edgebands.

Colorful POP Tables = tons o' fun!

Of course we didn't spend the entire festival ogling those shiny tabletops. Slowdive was at least enough of an attraction to pull us away from the terrace for a bit.

(POP) Art happens in the darndest places

POP Art is not dead, it's just hiding in middle Finland. In Mänttä, Finland to be exact, at the beautifully constructed Serlachius Museum.  Is it a coincidence that this POP exhibition is a mere 15 kilometers from the magical place where POP Tables are made? Absolutely not. That's not even funny. (We like to the think that the Universe supports our penchant for all things POP.)

A collection of work from international and Finnish artists, SUPERPOP! showcases many of the eye-popping, sugary sweet, anti-elite classics from the POP art era that we all know and love (or not). Along Serlachius' vast white walls, you'll find the colorful works of Lichtenstein and Warhol hanging alongside pieces from well-known Finnish POP artists. We were, of course, quite at home with the color scheme and genuinely impressed by this expansive, high-art exhibit--especially in such an out-of-the-way place.

It goes without saying that we were tickled pink to find such a great exhibition quite literally in our own backyard. (Speaking of pink, we've never seen Kim Jong Il look so ravishing.)
