In the fall of 2007, in celebration of the opening of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver and the new Libeskind Building at the Denver Art Museum, the entrepreneurial designers at Double Butter generously installed two of their roadrunner benches in very public locations in front of these cultural institutions. They had not been invited to do so. The benches have since been removed from these spots: the bench at the DAM was inducted into their permanent collection (we’re not sure where it went) and the MCAD bench was re-acquisitioned.
The Roadrunner bench is currently on view in front of the new 400 store at 1535 Platte Street. Double Butter designed and built everything in the 400, floor to ceiling. Across the street you can more of their design work at Disrespectacles as well as the most progressive eyewear to be found in Denver.
If you are interested in checking it out (or maybe doing some shopping), on Thursday December 11th from 6-9 pm the Platte Street businesses will be open late for libations and a sales stroll.
