Reader John Glassie, in reponse to my vitra party report helpfully points out:

one thing on vitra: do you mention where this store is? didn’t see. or am i dumb?[Ed note: John Glassie, not dumb] had to go to the vitra site and scroll through showroom locations around the world.

Um, ahem. Actually I do not. My apologies. The vitra. store in NYC is located in the overcooked Meatpacking District at 29 Ninth Avenue. Phone number: +1.212.463.5700.

In regard to my earlier post about banana packages, reader and
blogger Greg Allen (who, incidentally, has banana post of his own) writes:

Hey Jen,

[blogrolling flattery omitted]

I’d seen the banana juice box you just posted about, maybe at brandpackaging.com (where I can’t find it, btw) or boingboing.net, but I can’t find it anywhere in the Japanese net. The link you posted actually goes to the 404 file not found page on Nikkei Business Press [Ed note: d’oh!]; I couldn’t find any banana juice box info there, either.

Searching for the specific image, though, I found the same pic on Abu log, though, where the guy describes it as an unlikely-to-be-produced design concept. If your BP source has another link or an actual manufacturer, I’d be happy to poke around their site.

Best,

Thank you, fair readers, and good night.
