Some commodes are strictly utilitarian, while others provide elaborate sets for your Broadway-worthy shit show. One such place is the powder room at Culture Kings, a Design District boutique that began calling the area home and selling cool, exclusive street wear way before big names such as Marni and Y-3 caught on to the movement west of the railroad tracks. If the sterility of white walls conjures images of the Lysol-scented room where your gran hung her douche bag, you'll revel in the frenetic aesthetic of the Kings' loo. According to owner Chris Oh, the sticker bonanza "just happened organically," beginning with one panel and resulting in what you see above. It's a work in progress, meaning the next time you visit, the place could look even cooler. A second bathroom boasts a hip-hop theme.
In other Culture Kings art news, a few months ago, Oh transformed his office space into a place where works from local artists are on display. Visit culturekings.com to keep up with the rotating exhibit.
