Reinventing ladies who lunch
I just had lunch with the partners of the architecture firm Front Studio, who are reinventing the concept of ladies who lunch. Pushing aside the outdated description of women eating their mid-day meal while their husbands worked, Michi Yanagishita and Yen Ha turn their breaks from designing into a side art project. Every work day, they dutifully photograph lunch, whether its leftovers, take-out, or a sit-down meal at a restaurant. Of course, this being 2007, they also blog about it, post the images to Flickr and update their google map. They've been at it for almost a year. By now, they have covered a lot of places to eat around their Soho offices, which has turned the blog into an unexpected guide for Soho lunch places. Hmm... when's lunch?
