Hong Kong’s hippest restaurateur, design guru and art fiend, Alan Lo, lets us in on the news of two new exciting openings
Does alan lo ever sleep? Don’t get us wrong—the spectacled superdad always looks perfectly rested and perky to boot—but between his work with the Press Room Group, Duddell’s, Para Site, the Arts Development Council and the Ambassadors of Design, we’re flabbergasted that he has time to do anything else at all. The past few months have seen him in Venice for the biennale, in New York for the Frieze Art Fair and in Basel for Design Miami/basel. Now that Lo’s back on home turf, he’s hard at work on a new casual dining concept with British celebrity chef Tom Aikens, following the successful relaunch of The Pawn. Lo says it will open at the end of the year. He’s also collaborating with renowned Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto to create a new retail destination for the “contemporary urban male.” Called the Third Street Arcade, Lo suspects it will be launched in November. Phew, we’re exhausted—but excited.
cool, calm and collected Alan Lo always has something to smile about
