HomeSquare invites 6 successful guests from all walks of life in Hong Kong to reveal their ideal Igokochi, meaning a comfortable home in Japanese
HomeSquare, Hong Kong's home furnishing shopping destination, launches the "Zzzleeping Exhibition: A Collection of Chairs, Bedding & Lighting" featuring 6 celebrity guests’ ideal home, till November 22 at their showroom in Sha Tin.
Igokochi, the Japanese term for cosiness, represents the intimate space where one feels at ease. Haruki Murakami's interior designer Nakamura Yoshifumi once referred to igokochi as "an essential space every home should have where one can nurture and be indulged in one's own dream in solitude."
Architect Manfred Yuen, winner of Perspective’s 40 under 40, 2011 and one of the 6 guests, describes lighting as crucial for his interpretation of Igokochi. “Lighting turns a room into home,” explains Yuen.
Besides the 6 distinctive igokochi mock-ups, the exhibition will also feature some of the world-class home furnishing brands, including the British Royal Warrant-holding bedding brand Slumberland, NASA-patented bedding brand Tempur, UrbanLiving and BoConcept.
