Matter Becomes MINKA
Thirteen months ago, Moss + Mineral relocated to an 1,800′ space to co-found a design showroom, called Matter Tacoma. Now, in a move Tacoma Weekly called “the retail equivalent of ice skating’s double-axel, triple-Salchow,” Matter has become a different breed of animal – Minka.
Minka (821 Pacific Ave.) is a design space co-owned by me and my amazing creative partner, Tacoma artist Nicholas Nyland. Our 1,800′ space has a curated point of view and a high-Pop vibe. It’s colorful, and electric. We present select work by Northwest artists and artisans, and specialize in contemporary furnishings, craft and jewelry. Minka also mounts rotating art exhibits by artists from the Northwest and beyond.
Hours: Fridays 2-7, Saturdays, noon-5, and by appointment. Questions? Call 253.961.5220 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Artist and freelance curator, Lisa Kinoshita, expands her interest in mid-century design to period objects and unusual botanicals that transform the rooms we live in. (253.961.5220)
Minka is Japanese for “house of the people”.
