For one day only, Pure's Shanghai studio received an overhaul under the apparent curatorship of none other than Andy Warhol. Friends who flocked over were treated to an array of quirky goings on around the office, including a flavour tripping installation where they could try pills of Synsepalum Dulcificum, a naturally-occurring fruit that makes sour things taste sweet!
Other gastronomic pleasures included three different bottled cocktails inspired by Warhol Superstars, most notably the Ultraviolet Vodka Tonic which takes advantage of the quinine in tonic water that glows under ultraviolet light. This went alongside a buffet of fresh barbecue goodies, salads from Sproutworks and a few ethnic specialities thrown in for good measure.
When they weren't lounging in our studio garden, guests were encouraged to steal a t-shirt from the pop-up T-shirt gallery or spill the beans in the Confession Room. Spanning from the afternoon to late into the night, it was about as close as you could get to The Factory or Studio 54 this far away from New York!
Here, the minds behind Pure collate their impromptu musings, random inspirations and epiphanies borne of the deepest meditation.
