There’s a lot to look forward to when K11 Musea, a massive 3 million sq ft museum-shopping complex located at Victoria Dockside in Tsim Sha Tsui, opens this August. First, UA Cinemas announced it will be launching a 12-theatre multiplex cinema (which houses 1,711 seats) at the new mall. And just this week news came that MoMA Design Store will be making its way into K11 Musea as well.
An extension of New York’s renowned Museum of Modern Art, the Design Store already has outposts in Tokyo and Kyoto. But the new Hong Kong outlet will boast the title of Asia’s largest branch, and will stock a dizzying selection of design products and gifts inspired by MoMA’s collection, utilising work by some of the most famous artists in the world including Andy Warhol, Picasso and Monet. Past artist collaborations have seen skateboards featuring Yayoi Kusama’s iconic polka dots and exclusive figurines by Kaws. The venue is also known for championing lesser-known but no less innovative designers.
There will be a multitude of exclusive products and limited edition items developed specifically for the Hong Kong store, so have your wallets (and certainly cameras) ready when the shop opens in August.
