As the work week comes to a pleasant end, we begin to plot the weekend. We round up some great events and gatherings to visit this weekend around the world. We have art and design happenings in New York and Berlin, a new shop and fireflies in Tokyo. Enjoy the weekend and get out there!
NEW YORK: Exhibit of Abstract Art – Jayson Musson
Jayson Musson returns to New York’s Salon 94 Bowery with his second solo show entitled: Exhibition of Abstract Art. Musson takes reference from a vintage cartoon strip and is constantly questioning the “value in art, how it is derived, and who connotes value.” Learn more about the show here.

TOKYO: Firefly Evening at Hotel Chinzanso
Remember trying to capture fireflies as a kid? Well, we do. The luxurious Hotel Chinzanso in Tokyo offers a “Firefly Evening” where guests are invited to indulge in cocktails and watch a glowing garden of fireflies. If you’re traveling to Tokyo this summer, this maybe be the spot to stay. Find out more about Hotel Chinzanso here.
LOS ANGELES: ReForm School
Kinfolk gives us an in-depth look into ReForm School, a Los Angeles based home and design shop. What started as a “tiny corner of ideas” has grown into a brilliantly curated shop that stocks original art, antiques, items for the home and other objects of curiosity.

United Kingdom: Levi’s Customization Service
Throughout the summer, Levi’s is offering a customization service at all shop locations. You can take in your worn out 501’s or denim jackets and let Levi’s in-house tailors work some magic. This is right in line with festival season around the corner. See the video above and find your closest Levi’s retailer here.
