at Soho House Chicago
Johalla Projects helped to co-produce the opening party for Soho House by assisting Chad Kouri and The Post Family with his installation and overseeing all larger installation works.
This large-scale installation drew inspiration from the Soho House Chicago’s new Green Street home in the West Loop and its historic origin as a factory and warehouse. By revitalizing reclaimed building materials, pallets, doors, and windows, the installation referenced the past while simultaneously employing a keen sense of contemporary design and imagery. For this one-night-only event, the project served as a backdrop for the evening’s performance schedule by quietly announcing musicians’ entrances with subtle lighting cues.
The Post Family also partnered with Rebuilding Exchange (a sustainable deconstruction initiative) to create the art installation with a zero-waste solution.
