Indonesian chain Potato Head has opened its first location in Hong Kong’s Sai Ying Pun district. The space was envisioned to be a multi-purpose area, with a retail space, a restaurant and a coffee shop. It was designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto who wanted to evoke a sense of residential belonging. The space features a mix of various patterns on its facade, inspired by the city’s traditional window frames, allowing it to blend in with its surroundings. Its interior boasts a heavy showing of metallic fixtures in the stainless steel planters hung from the ceiling, and Indonesian furniture mixed with Marcel Breuer leather armchairs. Its restaurant component, named Kaum, hosts an impressive 700-hand-painted panels lining its walls and ceiling all created by Indonesian craftsmen. The room also opens up to a secret music space where audiophiles can meet and hang out. Learn more about the space here.
