PRODUCT PORCH was a 1 ½ year retail experiment done in collaboration with Brooks Hudson Thomas of Specific Merchandise and the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego. Originally intended to be six-months, PRODUCT PORCH remained on site for over a year and a half. The shop served as a laboratory for what a museum-shop could be. Featuring new design objects, furniture and accessories made by emerging and established artists and designers, it served as a destination for new design and creative retail in San Diego. Continually rotating merchandise along with a series of interactive programs inspired by the exhibition offered a reason for people to continue to return to the Museum.
