S.F.Z x WOAW - DUCK DEFECT POP UP STORE
Posted on September 23 2016
Lifestyle concept store WOAW has teamed up with local street artists Start From Zero (SFZ) to release a collection of wooden products. This inaugural collection is inspired by Kevin Poon’s passion for home goods and includes original designs that have never been released before. Every piece is handmade by SFZ in limited quantities.
DUCK DEFECT is the theme of this collaboration, with DUCK referring to duck canvas, a material that is traditionally used to make workwear, such as aprons. At the end of a productive day, the workwear of woodworkers is usually stained and covered in wood chips, making them appear like muddy ducks. The theme of DEFECT refers to the imperfections found on a piece of wood. Despite these imperfections, refined works can still be created from the wood. Handmade in Hong Kong, this collection uses different types of wood; as a result, each piece has its own distinct appearance.
WOAW Store has divided the collection into five categories: lamps, stools, tables, small home goods, work aprons, and accessories. SFZ’s street art style combined with excellent craftsmanship exemplifies the creative spirit of our local artists.
To mark the occasion, WOAW Store will host an opening party and two media woodcraft workshops led by Start From Zero founder, Dom. Each two-hour session will cover the basic steps of woodworking: assembly, modification, polishing, shuttering, and waxing.
Stay tuned. Shop online on September 27th, 2016.
