Ironlak Art & Design flagship store opens in Sydney
Seminal Australian art supplies brand, Ironlak, has proudly launched a fresh new retail space in the heart of Sydney. Located on the ground floor of Central Park in Chippendale, the Ironlak Art & Design flagship store aims to create an innovative retail experience for artists and designers.
With the brand traditionally catering to graffiti writers with spray paint and markers, the Ironlak Art & Design store marks the launch of Ironlak’s vastly extended product range, providing a wider selection of art tools to allow all artists to express their creativity. New additions to the line include acrylic & oil paints, watercolour paint, colour pencils, technical drawing pens, gel pens, canvas, charcoal, pastels, sketchbooks, pads and easels. Apparel needs a mention too.
The store was designed and built by Blake Ibbotson and the team at Fat Projects.
To kick things off with a bang, Ironlak hosted a private launch party at the store on Thursday night 7 October 2016, inviting a handful of Sydney creatives to enjoy a beer, wine, food and good times with the Ironlak team. Artist Mik Shida was in the building, blessing the feature wall with a fresh lick of paint, while DJ Harry Hunter filled the air with tunes.
The store is open 363 days a year, 10am–8pm. You can find it on the ground floor of Central Park – 28 Broadway, Chippendale, NSW, 2008, Australia.
DOES joined the Ironlak Family in 2008 and has been a proud supporter of the brand ever since. An interview with DOES on the new look ironlak.com will follow shortly.
