We’re delighted to announce our first retail space in Asia has officially opened its doors.
Hong Kong’s Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts is now home to TASCHEN’s 14th flagship store. Located in the courtyard of the former Central Police Station and with a beautiful terrace overlooking Hollywood Road, the store is set to become a hot spot for Hong Kong’s art scene and will contribute to promoting culture and exchange between East and West.
“We’ve always been very drawn to Hong Kong. We’ve had a regional office here since 2005, but finding a permanent space was a fitting choice for us to continue developing our presence and positioning in the region,” explains Marlene Taschen. “Hong Kong’s international spirit and thriving art scene make it an ideal platform for TASCHEN, and this store will give us the chance to present the full extent of our program and to directly engage with the local community.”
Press and VIP guests discovered the smashing new retail space during a preview event on June 20, 2018. Local teas and sparkling wine flowed as they browsed through TASCHEN’s latest releases, in surroundings beautifully appointed with Mogens Koch bookshelves and Gio Ponti furniture. Like its most recent European sisters, this flagship store is designed by Alberto Stampanoni Bassi and Salvatore Licitra, who have opted for elegant wooden floors and a unique outdoor terrace.
The new outpost offers art and culture, pop and fashion, film and photography, sex and glam across 1,300 square feet nestled in the heart of Hong Kong. Here’s to spreading the love for books!
