K11

It’s hard to escape malls in Asia, but Hong Kong’s newly opened K11 seeks to add something extra to retail.

The Overview

It's hard to escape malls in Asia, but Hong Kong's newly opened K11 seeks to add something extra to retail. Scattered throughout the six-story, 31,600-square-meter space is a permanent collection of 13 artworks—ranging from murals to installations—by prominent local artists such as Danny Lee, Kum Chi Keung and Man Yi Fung. Among the most striking is "Diary of Clouds"—a set of 68 panels with a cloud pattern etched on them by shui mo master Tony Ng—and Kum's "Shadow," a flock of pixilated-looking birds carrying handbags in their beaks. In addition to the collection are one-off exhibitions displayed in windows between stores. Up next: a free iPhone app with details on each piece and more K11 "art malls" planned for Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu.
