From 17 September until the end of November 2020, the Pop-Up store will be a tribute to the harmonious intersection of music and design as a reflection on 20th-century pop culture, bringing together a robust selection of new LPs, concert posters, and books that explore the interplay between the visual arts and music.
- Andy Warhol- the pop art icon, created a record cover for jazz musician Thelonious Monk. The album’s interplay of handwritten and printed text is in line with the pop legend’s fascination with the relationship between man and machine made objects.
- Yoko Ono- wife and artistic partner of musician John Lennon, used a time-delay camera with Lennon to take nude photographs of themselves for the cover of Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins, the first of the duo’s three experimental albums.
- Raymond Pettibon- a key figure in the ‘70s California punk scene. He engaged a wide spectrum of American iconography pulled from literature, art history, philosophy, religion, politics, sports and alternative youth culture.
- The Brionvega Radiofonografo turntable is particularly well-known – a customised all-white version that belonged to David Bowie was valued at HKD$2M at Sotheby’s after he passed away. This iconic turntable model will be showcased and available for order at The Record Shop Pop-Up, priced at HK$85,800.
- The Brionvega TS217 Wear It powered by British designer Michael Young will also be displayed, as will the Brionvega Radio grattacielo, an original design by Marco Zanuso.
The Record Shop audio gear also includes the GPO Brooklyn Boombox ($2,648), TEAC CD Recorder with Cassette Player and Turntable ($3,800), DENON AH-D9200 Bambooover-ear premium headphones ($10,980), Transparent Speaker- HK exclusive ($4,580) and Cotodama Lyric Speaker Canvas ($14,980).
