Launching it’s first pop-up, The Urban Eco Design Co. will be hosted by YSWARA Parkhurst for the month of May during which specially planned events will be taking place to showcase the products and design philosophy behind the brand. Concerned with conscious eco urban living and sustainable societies, founder and creator Joana Peltz wanted to create a space and market that could house a line of products and brands, both local and international, that don’t compromise on aesthetics for ethics and aid in creating these life philosophies. The first of the brands to be featured under Urban’s umbrella are BACSAC, Simple SAM and Brooks England. BACSAC is known for its ingenious plant containers that are suitable to all environments and resistant to the elements. Simple SAM Bicycles and Brooks England (a world leading specialist in bicycle saddles, bags and accessories) are brands that are looking to remind us about the simple and social elements of commuting. The Urban Eco Design Co. pop-up shop is open from 12 May until 31 May 2014 at YSWARA, 57 6th Street, Parkhurst. For more information about the pop-up shop, contact 010-590-1274.
