Minifab, la suite!

Few months ago I told you about this very exciting project : Minifab  (previous post)
In addition of distributing the Seedling and Stuck on You products , Minifab is  organizing birthday parties for kids. I helped them to design few panels in order to decorate the room according different themes.
Here are some pictures of their first events, it’s so nice to see the project going live !

If you are looking for an inspiring place to celebrate your little one’s birthday party, do not hesitate to contact them at info@minifab.com.hk
Thanks again Minifab for sending us these pics, looks like kidos had a lot of fun !

A piece of my home, the entrance

If you live in Hong Kong you will have, in the coming weeks, plenty of time to take care of your indoors. You know it! Rainy season has definitely started.

I took advantage of the bad weather this week-end to redecorate our entrance, a project that has been on the back burner for over two years. In this space, we have been using a set from Ikea’s BESTA collection, which is conveniently modular.  I like the pure lines and the glossy finish of the furniture, which gives it a very smooth look.

With that being said, I still wanted to add to it my own personal touch. And so all of a sudden this long overdue project became in the morning a matter of emergency that had to be finished before the end of the day!

And so a few brush strokes and hammer blows later, we were able to enjoy our new entrance.

Redecorating the space meant adding a splash of color to the walls and the furniture. We first started by painting a large streak on the main wall, a quick and easy task my little assistant helped with.

Then, instead of using regular frames, I attached family photos to a rope and taped some directly to the wall using washi tape. I also hung a large world map canvas from the M&G collection (available here). I like the playfulness this canvas brings to the space.

To add a touch of color both to the walls and the furniture, I used the Gros pois stickers (girl palette). And I customized the furniture doors with stickers from the Plain is boring collection, which will be available soon in our e-shop,  so stay tuned!

An office in Chai Wan (4)

Hi Everyone!
Here is the 4th and final installment of my work for Newsprint Group. And this time, I want to share with you the murals.
In order to match with the industrial spirit of the space while bringing some touches of color, we decided to add large paint streaks on some strategic walls. So instead of working on detailed patterns, we privileged texture and color by creating monumental paintings.

We selected three walls:
- the wall facing the elevators,
- the wall shared by the welcome desk and the finance department,
- and the wall of the meeting room.

Here are some picture of the final result.

I’m very happy to introduce to you the new Hoplababy pop up store hosted by  La boutique Troizenfants.

When Elodie, founder of the Hoplababy e-shop, asked me to help her come up with a concept for a retail space, I was immediately seduced by the project. We decided to work on an animal and party themed design.hoplababy_concept-02hoplababy_concept-04

Here is the before/after pictures:

The Minifab project

logo-minifabP1070281

I have been dying to talk to you about this particular project!
Minifab is the new distributor in Hong Kong of the Australian brands Seedling & Stuck-on-you. I was asked to develop an original design for their entrance hall and playroom/showroom/meeting room, adding fun and functional furniture and wall art.
Minifab is not just a toy store, it is also a creativity laboratory for children. A space where they will be inspired to let their imagination loose. And with that in mind, we decided to adopt the “collage” technique as a graphic base.

The playroom will host different events, from birthdays to handicrafts workshops. We therefore created modular furniture, allowing a variety of configurations according to the number of participants and their ages.

I would like to thank all the members of the Minifab team who have been amazing throughout this process and very welcoming during the setup. Special thanks go to Jenny & Ellen with whom I had worked last year on a few design projects. It was an absolute bliss to collaborate with both of you again.
