Sloomoo Institute brings the joy of slime to Atlanta with the help of strategic counsel from terra alma to find the perfect space in Buckhead. Located in the Buckhead Triangle, the interactive, immersive experience opens on November 19, just before the holidays.
“terra alma creates places where people gather to socialize and be entertained and what better place to find a home for than Sloomoo Institute, where people of all ages discover the joy of multi-sensory play,” said Edie Weintraub, Founder and Chief Community Builder, terra alma.
Sloomoo Institute started as a pop-up in New York City in October 2019. Widely popular, the brand attracted 30,000 visitors per month, including A-list celeb fans like Christina Aguilera, the Bryant family, Drew Barrymore, Maya Hawke and Uma Thurman, Kerry Washington, Connie Britton, Neil Patrick Harris, Robert De Niro, Selena Gomez, Tracy Morgan, Busy Phillips, North and Chicago West, Jessica Alba, Eli Manning and others. Building on the popularity of its first location, Sloomoo is opening this month in Chicago and Atlanta.
“The space we’re in was the first space we saw. We knew it was ‘it’ immediately, and although we went on to look at a handful of others, we always came back to the monumental location Edie showed us first,” said Sloomoo Institute Co-Founder Karen Robinovitz. “She mentioned the potential on a call and had an intuitive sense that it was just right for us. It’s the dream spot. We are so excited to infuse it with Sloomoo.”
Sloomoo is a playful world featuring sophisticated, interactive spaces designed with a world-class architect shop, Method Design, and contemporary artists. The experience is meticulously thoughtful, bringing recreational architecture to new heights that highlight hand-crafted, artisanal slime and other tactile compounds. Dozens of slime textures, the most delicious scents, soothing ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), and wondrous delights live in a glossy setting to delight not just kids, but the kid in all of us.
Co-Founders Karen Robinovitz and Sara Schiller launched Sloomoo Institute to offer the magic of slime and sensory play to the world through in-person experiences and #satisfying slime products, which are sold in-store and online.
Sloomoo was inspired by the happiness Robinovitz experienced when playing with slime with a friend’s child. She and her co-founder, Sara, began brainstorming, and the rest is history. They still make slime every Sunday with Sara’s family. Karen is also an avid art lover, and along with Sara, she is on the Board of Advisors of the Brooklyn Museum.
