The Canvas by Querencia has announced a new partnership with Change2, an Italy-based Augmented and Virtual Reality company. The collaboration will focus on creating 3D configurations for products to allow simulated viewing of designs.
Before The Canvas came to Williamsburg, it was a warehouse sitting vacant on Bedford Avenue. A young artist named Danny Cole had recently moved to the area. In his comings and goings he began to notice the warehouse always seemed to be closed. In particular, the big, blank garage door out front called his attention. “Every time I walked past it,” he recalls, “I felt like it was literally asking me to go out in the middle of the night and turn the whole thing into a big mural.”
For this piece, we spoke with Thomas De Mulder from the MADE team on the unique and innovative model the company uses to be more than a real estate business, but a trend setter highlighting and bolstering a variety of cultural and artistic endeavors across Antwerp.
