Plastik - Designer Toys in Brazil
Vinyl is global. Recently we featured the first vinyl store in Israel. Today we're checking out Plastik -- the only designer toy store + gallery in Brazil. Opened in '06, the store offers the latest vinyl in a stunning environment with atmosphere and personality to spare -- clawfloot bathtubs as toy displays? Yes, please. They are also making waves in terms of promoting designer toys -- their print campaign recently won a silver award at the CLIO 2008 awards.
It's not all toys though... The Plastik gallery hosted Gary Baseman for a Munny art show in '07 and is currently showing the sweet stencil work of French artist Christian Guémy (C215). See more of his work on his Flickr. Click through for more pics. If you're in São Paulo, you now have a new must-see on your to-do list. Even if you can't make it to the store, they've got a nice bilingual blog -- check it out.
