The Vending Machine
After a trip to Japan in 2016 where Marla was inspired by vending machines lining the streets, she decided that we should build our own and fill it with our jewelry. So we did just that. It launched with an installation at the Brooklyn Museum. It subsequently traveled to a garden in Brooklyn and Soho--each one an entirely unique and wonderful experience to be “stumbled upon.”
We are thrilled that its fourth installation is at Rockefeller Center as a part of our Take a Seat for Restaurants initiative. It is located at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, between 48th and 49th Streets, in an alcove of 1 Rockefeller Plaza. Or, across from the Nintendo Store.
The vending machine's latest residency was at the MZ Wallace store at 93 Crosby Street in New York City's Soho neighborhood from January 24 - May 13. It was a Valentine's Day installation and included this short film, "Love is Everything" in celebration of love.
Fitting into its new manhattan location nicely

Previously the vending machine was installed in the garden at the William Vale Hotel and launched at the Brooklyn Museum. The videos below ran inside the machine at both of those locations.

…we created these videos to explain to you why we thought this was an interesting way for you to buy our jewelry…
This is the video that appeared in our William Vale Park installation.
