What’s in a Name?

As a unique collection of the most inspiring merchants, exciting cuisine, and creative companies to come to Los Angeles, the meaning behind the name is a question that continues to come up.

The significance, as it turns out, is two fold. In an article for the LA Times earlier this year, Adam Tschorn wholeheartedly captured the significance and described Platform as a nod to both to the presence of nearby rail lines, as well as the desire to make the four-acre experience a platform for the brands on board.

As a name, Platform is an homage to the historic rail lines that determined the modern-day infrastructure and areas in which we live and work today. It is also an allegiance to the future of Los Angeles and the Expo Line, which is already changing a city we know and love.

Yet Platform is also just that — a platform that we created to bring together the very best in fashion, culinary arts, and design. From Aesop’s one of a kind spa services to luxury British import Linda Farrow and their first US storefront, there is something truly unique and specific about each individual space.

As you’ll come to see, there is always something new to experience at Platform so stay tuned for what’s to come and hope to see you soon.

There’s no surprise or shortage when it comes to love for The Cannibal LA which recently opened its doors at Platform when this pic was posted.

In addition to capturing the magnificent outdoor dining along Washington Boulevard as well as Jen Stark’s show stopping mural, what we love the most about this shot are the shadow boxes that showcase additional pieces of her work.

Be sure to see them while they’re on display and drop by the butcher shop, sandwich counter, and dining room open daily at The Cannibal LA.
