Industrial Plastics - Closed

309 Canal New York, NY 10013 | Soho | 212-226-2010

Location Description:

Upon entering INDUSTRIAL PLASTICS, one first encounters inexplicable bins of bite-sized synthetic cylinders and amorphous industrial extras just begging for a small child's art project. But one is quickly drawn to the nearby plastic fruit display, which rivals the selection (and waxiness) of the produce at most New York grocery stores. The huge translucent boards of neon plastic, gold-plated domes, rubber tubing, and silver grating have been spotted in more than a few up-and-coming bars in Lower Manhattan. But the most dangerous aisle for the budding postmodern fashion designer or nouveau 3-D pop artist is the last, which buries the unsuspecting shopper in caves of the most elaborate rolls of holographic sheeting known to man.
