Product Inspiration

Inspired by the materials, textures and shapes of the Central Police Station compound, the Tai Kwun Store collection presents an array of everyday basics which are made of carefully chosen materials and which reference the colours of the site’s architectural features.

Playful and minimalist, Tai Kwun products let visitors savour and relive their experience at home.

In Tai Kwun’s bygone days, local civil servants as well as those hailing from the UK and India all shared a love for tea.

DIY Bookbinding X Journal Planner

Motivated by a not-so-distant past when letterpress printing was still popular and books were hand-bound, we invite you to experience the craftsmanship of bookbinding – which mixes old and new – and enjoy making your own hand-bound, unique book. We proudly present the Tai Kwun DIY bookbinding kit – a limited-edition gift item merging bookbinding art and journal design. Sold exclusively in Tai Kwun Store!

Tai Kwun’s Public Art Collection

Tai Kwun Contemporary has commissioned five local and international artists to create public artworks for Tai Kwun. Inspired by these the Tai Kwun store offers some limited collectible items. Bring them home now!

The Japanese artist Izumi Kato (b.1969) depicts human-like creatures that probe real or imagined sources of life. Available for the first time—exclusively for Tai Kwun—as a transparent coloured figurine, this vinyl doll references Kato’s iconic and limited "soft vinyl figurine" series which he began in 2010 and further contributed to his signature soft vinyl sculptures. The figurines refer to Kato’s ongoing experiments with materiality as a volatile element. Their significance lies in their pulsating yet contemplative existence, which subtly evolves beyond process and creation to attain a spirit of their own.
