The New York-based iconic brand has opened its largest Asian es­tab­lish­ment.

Ex­pe­ri­ence art, de­sign and cul­ture in the Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art’s (Moma) largest de­sign store in Asia, which opened in Au­gust at K11 Musea, Hong Kong. The 6,000 sq ft store is de­signed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Edge De­sign In­sti­tute, and in­cor­po­rates el­e­ments of the city to make it a unique re­tail space of­fer­ing global de­sign ob­jects and gifts, as well as Moma-ex­clu­sive and lim­ited-edi­tion prod­ucts.

Pay­ing homage to Hong Kong’s metropoli­tan city and cul­tural in­flu­ences, Edge De­sign In­sti­tute con­ceived the store with mod­ern in­te­ri­ors, tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als such as bam­boo and gal­vanised zinc, as well as fur­ni­ture, in­clud­ing pieces that par­al­lel tra­di­tional dim sum trol­leys and du­al­func­tion ta­bles re­sem­bling mahjong ta­bles.

There are also nooks where shop­pers can take a breather and browse through pub­li­ca­tions.

De­sign lovers will ap­pre­ci­ate that the Hong Kong store car­ries an ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion by Dan­ish fur­ni­ture brand Hay along­side a well­cu­rated se­lec­tion of prod­ucts show­cas­ing the lat­est in ma­te­ri­als, pro­duc­tion and de­sign con­cepts from around the world. These in­clude the iconic Kusama Pump­kins mod­elled af­ter an art­work by renowned Ja­panese artist Yayoi Kusama, and the Clock­clock 24 Golden Hands, a store ex­clu­sive.

Ther­a­peu­tic shop­ping can­not be rushed. Take a breather in one of sev­eral nooks in the store.
