STATE x Japan Artisan Series. This titanium frame, made in Japan, features distinctive hand-painted enamel accents to enhance its shape. Designed in Chicago, it combines shapes from different eras to create something completely modern. A round shape and minimalist take on an aviator alchemize to create something more special than the sum of the parts. In this way, we’re reminded of the Aragon Ballroom on Lawrence Avenue. Opened in the 1920s, the Aragon has had to reshape its image over time, going from hosting the big band dances of yesteryear to a beloved rock venue. No matter the times though, it charms whatever crowd passes through, confident in its timeless charm.
