Lookout & Wonderland is a creative studio based in Los Angeles, California founded by Niki Livingston and Yusuke Tsukamoto with a focus on design, textile and the art of creation. Their studio is deeply informed by the essence of the Vienna Secession, Wiener Werkstätte, the persistent aspiration to achieve Gesamtkunstwerk and to create beautiful work that will assist in building a life that is the ultimate work of art.
These Days is a gallery and shop in Downtown Los Angeles founded by Jodi and Stephen Zeigler. Longtime residents of Downtown's Historic Core and native Angelenos, they have been operating the space as "118 Winston" since 2009 for events and by appointment.
"We did shows when we wanted and were normally only open for events and by appointment as Jodi and I both worked [in the photography world] a lot; as well as Winston St was pretty gritty and not ready for the kind of gallery we wanted."
In October 2014, with the transition of the neighborhood, the Zeiglers reemerged as These Days. Continuing with back to back gallery shows and adding retail, These Days features emerging artists, collectible and out-of-print photography books and zines, modern and vintage design objects, original art and more.
"Jodi and I always wanted to have a community oriented arts space to promote the artists, makers, and books that we love."
