psst psst

if you haven't heard, the box jelly neighbors are expanding their co-working space a tad further beyond our shared "door". it's something like a homecoming, after box jelly first opened as a popup in the back of fishcake in 2011.
The Box Jelly will be divided by Fishcake, a home furnishings store and gallery for designers, nestled right in the middle of Box Jelly’s offices. But the relationship between the two companies (Fishcake is owned by Fujihira’s mother Maura Fujihara) will allow for shared access to the space.
“You can freely flow between Fishcake and Box Jelly. It’s like a sister company, and they’re kind of like the yin to our yang. They provide that balance to what we’ve got going on here,” DiCarlo said. 

lots of changes underway!

let there be light [+furniture]!

fish friends! we are happy to share with you our next art exhibit akari + kagu: let there be light [+furniture]. the show features akari (luminaries) and kagu (furniture) of 12 hawaii artists.

in previous years, akari + kagu developed as a close collaboration with the university of hawaii manoa through programs teaching furniture design and construction. in this year, we reach out to independent artists throughout hawaii with the same support to foster good quality craftsmanship.

it's going to be a good one (as always!)
