Therapeutic shopping cannot be rushed. Take a breather in one of several nooks in the store. 

Experience art, design and culture in the Museum of Modern Art’s (Moma) largest design store in Asia, which opened in August at K11 Musea, Hong Kong. The 6,000 sq ft store is designed in collaboration with Edge Design Institute, and incorporates elements of the city to make it a unique retail space offering global design objects and gifts, as well as Moma-exclusive and limited-edition products.

Paying homage to Hong Kong’s metropolitan city and cultural influences, Edge Design Institute conceived the store with modern interiors, traditional materials such as bamboo and galvanised zinc, as well as furniture, including pieces that parallel traditional dim sum trolleys and dual-function tables resembling mahjong tables.

There are also nooks where shoppers can take a breather and browse through publications.

Design lovers will appreciate that the Hong Kong store carries an extensive collection by Danish furniture brand Hay alongside a well-curated selection of products showcasing the latest in materials, production and design concepts from around the world. These include the iconic Kusama Pumpkins modelled after an artwork by renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, and the Clockclock 24 Golden Hands, a store exclusive.
