Profile

Founded by Kyle DeWoody and Artlog’s Manish Vora, Grey Area defines its carefully curated stock as existing in “the undefined space between art and design where art is made functional and the functional is made art.” As such, it is a showcase for creators who challenge conventional ideas about art and design. The space is filled with an ever-shifting collection of eye-catching and somewhat eccentric objects (mummified Barbies, for example, and sculptures of chairs covered in white, drooping flowers) from both up-and-coming as well as established artists. The showroom tends to the conceptual or somewhat avant-garde, but there are also one-of-a-kind textiles and wearable art for both men and women, such as printed T-shirts, hand-painted neckties, and even vintage lingerie with Swarovski accents. A theme that runs throughout the store is reinterpretation—many of the art pieces incorporate everyday objects, and much of the eye-catching jewelry has been crafted from otherwise ordinary or discarded goods.
