Scene Shang’s raison d’etre is the appreciati­on of Asian culture vis-àvis designs that draw from the once forgotten and yet undiscover­ed. On display today is an interpreta­tion of art deco-heavy 1930’s Shanghai (the birthplace of Scene Shang, circa 2013) which is expressed through traditiona­l handcrafte­d trays and baskets. This Art Deco Cane Tray with Lid ($69), for instance, has been fashioned from natural cane with rattan binding and brass accents. It showcases co-founders Jessica Wong and Pamela Ting’s design aesthetic which has been described as “an ode to the old and a nod to the new”.
