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.
"While we are the largest Axminster manufacturer in the industry, our focus is on creating a crafted, inspired aesthetic in everything we produce," said Ginger Gilbert, global creative director for 1956 by Tai Ping. "We are proud that the Design Collective is the first of its kind to deliver a comprehensive and diverse collection of original designs from three talented international artists."
