If you haven’t been to Siam Center for a while, perhaps it’s high time you gave the artsy mall a visit. Siam Center teams up with Citibank to host Siam Center Idea Avenue presents Color of Siam created by Craig & Karl, inviting London- and NYC-based art duo Craig Redman and Karl Maier, who's praised for funky and vibrant aesthetics, some of which has been showcased in several prominent institutions such as Musée de la Publicité in Paris and The Museum of the Moving Image in New York, to create a site-specific installation that's exclusive to the mall.

Entirely decking out the mall's one of the main atriums is “Chromatic,” the quirky and colorful installation influenced by geometric reinterpretations of eyes and mouths, all of which are made funkier with cutting-edge design and formation of patterns. The installation is on display from now until 5 January 2020.

The fun experience is not only a feast to the eyes but is also up for grabs. All the designs from the collaboration are also channeled onto an exclusive collection of accessories available only at Siam Center. For every minimum purchase of B3,500 or B3,000 exclusively for Citibank and Viz Cardholders, mall-goers will receive a cosmetic bag bathed with the exclusive pattern designed by Craig and Karl for free. For a minimum of B2,500 or B2,000 exclusively for Citibank and Viz Cardholders, you'll get either an AirPod case or a shopping tote bag for free. The gifts are available only now until 30 September.
