From their base in Chiang Mai, Thailand, ephemera merchants Den Souvenir sell one-of-a-kind objects from times passed while producing new future artefacts, sure to endure, if only for their weirdness. It’s hard to see this first Den Souvenir delivery to arrive at Double Double as a “collection.” Rather, living up to their name, the items, ranging from hemp knitted hats to glass pipes to a branded mug, appear more like mementos from a souvenir store-meets-headshop. This is no mistake though, but Den Souvenirs mission: exploring the aesthetics and emotional resonances of the superfluous objects borne of tourism.
With no particular event or future in mind, the Den Souvenir Best Wishes Coffee Mug wishes you the best. In the world as it stands, many of us are in need of such well-wishing on a regular basis, why not every morning courtesy of Den Souvenir.
