Charlie Le Mindu at /THE LAB/!

French art collectors Emmanuel Renoird and Nicolas Libert, the two founders of concept store Please Do Not Enter, have created their third space in Los Angeles: /THE LAB/, a creative platform bringing together an exhibition space, featuring exclusive contemporary art and design collections, and a whimsically curated hotel gift shop. 

As an exhibition space, /THE LAB/ will feature a different artist exhibition every month, carefully selected by the founders of Please Do Not Enter. /THE LAB/'s first show, Short Memories, is still on view  until April 8.

The second show at /THE LAB/ will be open from April 11 until May 9. Titled Noir, this show will feature French designer Charlie Le Mindu. Born in France in 1987 Charlie Le Mindu began his career as a hairstylist. After training at the French Hair Academy, he became the resident hairdresser at Berlin clubs where he performed 'live cuts'. Le Mindu diversifed into fashion design, however hair remained the central focus of his designs. 

Alongside each exhibition /THE LAB/ also functions as a hotel gift shop. It features a smart curated retail selection including an electric array of exclusive timeless contemporary pieces, including art, accessories, books, and not your ordinary hotel gift shop needs. Catherine Gaillard, Celeste Mogador, Sebastien Joffrey Monfort, and Tzuri Gueta are among the French brands included in the retail portion of /THE LAB/.
