Design loving folks, prepare to get excited; House of TANG, the completely renewed design floor of TANGS’ flagship store on Orchard, has opened its doors on level 4. With a carefully selected mix of international design gems and locally designed gems and creations of regional talent, the House of TANG collection is a double-whammy of pure WOWness.
The spacious environment, steel fixtures and high windows combined with a constantly rotating selection of (interior) design objects, state of the art technology, and contemporary gift ideas make this ‘downtown-loft feel' oasis a new favourite shopping destination for creative cosmopolitans alike.
Besides a dreamy collection, House of TANG reveals the legendary stories behind the making of the brands on display. It’s as much about you going home with a lasting new treasure as it is about celebrating the act of creating. And with the holiday season getting into full swing next month, everyone on the receiving end of your gifts will be thrilled with your visit to House of TANG!
We’ll soon reveal the inspiring stories behind each and every treat in the House of TANG collection here on Style Hawker. For now, we’ll give you five good reasons to come visit and tickle your design fancy.
1. SCENTS THAT TAKE YOU PLACES
Often all that’s needed to lighten up our mood is a little something yummy-smelling in the air. The beautifully designed Glasshouse Fragrances do just that. Their triple scented candles, fragrance diffusers and line of personal care products release flavour combos like pineapple, tangerine and cherry, mimosa and wild apple or jasmine wood and vanilla. It’s the perfect holiday gift. No wrapping skills needed as the packaging is oh so pretty already.
2. INSPIRED BY NATURE, FUELLED BY DESIGN
After a 16 year career in advertising, founder Cath Lim left the grey corporate jungle to break her curse as a serial plant killer. We’re rather pleased that she did as Cath, now a certified horticulturist, and her team bring us busy urbanities closer to nature’s trusty companions without the need to slog under the sun. The Plant Story spreads the green love at House of TANG with a series of exclusively designed urban gardening creations, brightening up our homes and purifying your air!
3. SAVE YOUR MEMORIES IN STYLE
Raise your hand if you’re a known collector of souvenirs, memories and nostalgic bits and bobs. Make History, a Dutch Design studio, creates beautiful products that save your most precious memories in style. They’re the perfect, meaningful gift for yourself or a loved one. Whether you want to keepsake your wedding memories in a TimeCapsule, immortalise the funny, wise, and heartwarming things your kids say with a Little Quote Jar or track your offspring’s growth in style with a Growth Chart!
4. LET YOUR PET WEAR VALUES
Inspired by a fisherman in the family, FOUND MY ANIMAL made their first whipped rope leash for their rescue pups in 2006. The two founders met in Brooklyn while walking their rescue pups, both of whom were coincidentally named Walter. With a shared passion for rescued dogs and a background in design they decided to become partners. Their collection is to drool for, both for dogs as well as for their design loving owners.
5. BE INSPIRED
Oh and while you’re oohing and aahing over our assortment, do enjoy some live craftsmanship while the lovely traditional bookbinders of Bynd Artisan customise your leather notebooks on-site, join showcases and workshops from various designers and makers or simply come to please your peepers!
