Goods of Desire (G.O.D.)

For the quintessential Hong Kong products that remind you of the city’s distinct east-meets-west cultural mix, G.O.D. is the city’s sardonic lifestyle brand for fresh fashion, home décor, lifestyle, and gift designs inspired by the very craziness that occupies Hong Kong. City inside jokes, sardonic takes on expatry, and parodies on Cantonese culture can be seen on clothing and homeware, using age-old traditions to stylise and create products memorable in our homes and on our bodies. Founded in 1996, it has sustained a long life due to its pull with locals and expats to fill their homes with a quintessential take on Hong Kong.

MoMA Design Store

The Hong Kong branch of the MoMA Design Store in K11 MUSEA follows the principles of New York’s Museum of Modern Art to establish the importance of design’s role in our culture and personal lives splitting into our homes. With a catalogue of daring, modern, and innovative products inspired by the MoMA’s curatorial identity with design, the museum gift shop has an edge to other Hong Kong lifestyle stores. Find products like portable iPhone-linked sticker printers, hand-sized Polaroid photo books, Bauhaus-style nesting tables, bamboo skateboards, and stylish, stackable egg carts. Form and function are stressed with the selection of new products, assessed against a set of eight criteria to ensure a good fit in the 7,000-square-foot K11 store.
