New Kid on the Block: Ming Utility and Entertainment

Ming Utility and Entretainment storefrontMing Utility and Entertainment, a creative agency, has opened the small “Store” part of its new office on Peck Slip. The idea is that the merchandise will change every three months; currently, Ming is featuring British designer Tom Dixon—scented candles, barware, desk supplies, some whimsical bookmarks, and more. They’re still working out the details, but the store is likely to follow gallery hours (i.e., closed Sunday and Monday).

Ming Utility and Entertainment is at 25 Peck Slip, 646-517-6600;
