From 1956 by Tai Ping's Design Collective
NEW YORK-Tai Ping's hospitality division, 1956 by Tai Ping, has launched the Design Collective, a visionary collaboration featuring designs by rising artists: Gaelle Villedary of France, PHUNK of Singapore (comprised of Alvin Tan, Melvin Chee, Jackson Tan and William Chan), and an anonymous Australian artist.
Each artist brings a unique aesthetic vision to the collection, from the soft, ethereal flower portraitures in Villedary's Archipelago series to the surrealistic figures in PHUNK'S Empire of Dream.
