About the project

_

Welcome to the “HarbourChill”, where a few sets of animal furniture located at various spots on the harbourfront space are expecting you. Please join us to discover the traces of this series of creative furniture! Curated by Hong Kong Arts Centre, this pop-up art intervention features the furniture designed by Napp Studio. Inspired by the forms of different animals, the designers used wood strips of various lengths to build this portable furniture series, hoping to add interests to the waterfront facilities and enhance their user experience. A fox, giraffe, monkey, elephant and cat take turns to occupy a favourable position on the lawn to enjoy the sunshine. See what animal will greet you this time? One might as well put down their takeaway coffee, lunchboxes or small objects on the back of these animals and enjoy the leisure at the Wan Chai harbourfront.

About Napp Studio

Design is a minimal yet effective intervention in dialogue with the needs of its users and context. We filter and accentuate the essential in design, and find beauty in simple and clear intentions.

Napp Studio & Architects is a design office that works across scales between space and object – from architecture, interior, exhibition to furniture and product. As architects, we approach design subjects through series and layers of rigorous operations e.g. social, formal, practical, structural and environmental, which are translated in all scales.

Our practice has won several local and international awards including Gold Award in Taipei International Design Award and Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award; and our works have been exhibited in a number of exhibitions e.g. 16th International Venice Architecture Biennale, SPARK The Science and Art of Creativity, Hong Kong/Shen Zhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.

Napp Studio & Architects was founded by Aron TSANG and Wesley HO in 2016.
