Already open to customers, Our Favorite Shop (OFS) is a retail/creative space presented by CLAE. In addition to serving as a retail platform for the brand and for an assortment of creative products, the space will also house the brand’s creative studio. The brainchild of CLAE founder and creative director, Sung Choi, Our Favorite Shop’s interior was designed in collaboration with architect Nathan Lentz and Shin Azumi from the furniture design company WAKA with assistance from architect Francis Ireifej.
As soon as the space was discovered in the Mid-City area, the neighborhood Choi has called home for the last 12 years, they knew it was perfect. “Investing in the community and adding to the eclectic mix of shops already here was really important to me,” Choi says. “OFS is a great opportunity to showcase CLAE alongside interesting items from our favorite artisans as well as from our travels.”
