Located just inside the main entrance of the brand new Xintiandi Plaza on Huaihai Zhong Lu is a pop-up store featuring a series of eye-catching colored walls.
This dreamy space by Kimmik, the home furniture label by Berlin-based visual artist Kim Ye, features a range of cushions, small sofas, chairs, coffee tables, carpets, tissue boxes and more. Much like the flashy interior design courtesy of ‘EXIT by Swimming Pool Studio,’ Ye’s products all feature eclectic animal prints and bold hues that make them stand out from everything else on the same floor.

Gender neutrality is a central theme for Kimmik. From the brand name (a mirror image of the artist’s first name, which can be used for both men and women) to the playful designs, these home décor products are a good match for anyone with a larger than life personality. In addition to the animal-centric main line, Ye has also recently collaborated with Shanghai Grand Theatre to release a special limited collection featuring theatrical prints, which are also available at the pop-up store. Running until the end of February, fans of the brand will also be able to find their products on Kimmik’s WeChat store (search for Kimmik on WeChat).
