M DOT DESIGN STUDIOBehind The Bend
by Eric Stauble·
At Bend, we love a good Pop-up shop, especially one that incorporates different artisan designers all with different disciplines. It takes a very specific person to bring different makers together and still tell a cohesive story, and M Dot Design Studio founder Michelle Aquino is definitely one of the best.
Michelle curates Pop-up shops all over the country for everyone from big chains like the W Hotels to local hotspots like The Springs in downtown Los Angeles. We were lucky enough to be invited to sell at The Springs for their summer pop-up that goes until September.
Additionally if you haven't been to The Springs, definitely put it on your list. It's a vegan restaurant, yoga studio, pop-up shop and probably one of the most relaxing spots in the big city that is downtown Los Angeles. It's a must visit, especially when you need a zen moment.
