Museum of Modern Art Hong Kong store planned
New York’s Museum of Modern Art will open a Design Store in Hong Kong.
The Museum of Modern Art Hong Kong store will open in the new K11 Musea art mall. It will be the largest in Asia following two locations in Japan.
The 6000sqft retail store, which celebrates innovative design in products from around the world and serves as a platform for emerging artists and designers, will showcase works from leading Hong Kong artists such as Kaws and Yayoi Kusama. Every product at the store is exclusive and undergoes a series of eight criteria filters to ensure a strong fit with Moma’s vision of good design.
K11 Group founder Adrian Cheng, who was recently named the first Council of Fashion Designers of America global ambassador, is a board member of Moma and led the introduction of the store in Hong Kong.
The Museum of Modern Art Hong Kong store will open in August.
