If you live in Dublin, you probably have noticed the artistic side of the city. Many graffiti, streetarts, but also photographers, poets, designers. Well, a collaborative project of the District Magazine and Ace&Tate decided to show a selection of those people who make Dublin what it is.
The eye-wear brand from Amsterdam Ace&Tate opened a store in Dublin at the end of August of this year. The brand’s trademark is its desire to create glasses for everyone’s style and different sides of them. Their transparency towards their clients is also one of their main characteristics, as you visit their website you’ll be able to see which materials they use, with which company they work with, etc.
Very artistic brand, and innovative in the way of making glasses, they decided to create a collaborative project with the Irish magazine ‘District magazine’ to launch their store in Dublin. Their goal was to give the floor to some of the artists that make Dublin moves. They realized a mini-documentary untitled ‘Heads’.
The work they make is inspired by the city for all of them and they explain it in the video.
Here are the ‘Heads’ of Dublin :
- Restaurateur Joe Macken
- Poet Felispeaks
- Stylist Aisling Farinella and Designer David Wall
- Rapper Mango Dassle
By using a local magazine and interviewing local artists, Ace&Tate earns the sympathy of Dubliners. Their collaborative project illustrates perfectly the artistic aspect of both Ace&Tate and District magazine.
