Hi Thanks Bye ‘Collection O’ inspired by Canadian Landscapes and Chinese Gardens

Toronto-based studio Hi Thanks Bye debuts their first collection at London Design Week 2018 with the ‘Collection O’ which was inspired by both Canadian landscapes and Chinese gardens. The studio’s co-founders, Stein Wang and Topher Kong, immigrated from China to Canada, where they started their new practice.

The entire collection is constructed using contemporary cold-rolled steel sheets and tubings juxtaposed by traditional, handmade textile pieces. With its timeless simplicity, Collection O is a tribute to the studio’s cross-cultural roots, celebrating our adoptive country, Canada, and their country of origin, China, in equal terms, while exuding an aesthetic of tactile charm and visually superior craftsmanship.
