Our store at Hong Kong’s Harbour City houses a new interior design feature – The Vault, which will be an area dedicated to exclusive or limited edition products. This is the first Mulberry ‘Vault’ in the world and has been designed by award winning interior designers Universal Design Studio with a site specific art installation created exclusively for the store. The liquid metal and enamel pieces have been created by Based Upon and feature casts of Mulberry leaves from the original Mulberry tree outside our UK factory.
Based Upon kept the production process as natural and organic as possible, letting nature take control of the design. Ian told us: “We like to begin with a journey or location, so we took a trip to the factory in Somerset.”
“We became captivated by the Mulberry tree in nature. The leaves we took from the original symbolised Mulberry’s rural English roots, which then travelled across the world to Hong Kong, as a reference to Mulberry’s travels and expansion over the world.”
