TUNG HING GLASS
Yuet Tung China Works was founded in 1928 and is the only decorated porcelain brand in Hong Kong today. Tung Hing Glass was established in Hong Kong in 1936 and has been engaged in designing, manufacturing and sales of glassware, kerosene lamp and metalware.
First time ever, through the ReMIX program, two historical brands (Yuet Tung China Work and Tung Hing Glass) had joined forces with Afterwork industrial designers to forge a new partnership. With comprehensive understanding of different materials and manufacturing processes, Afterwork visualizes designs with simplicity, practical into the environment and created a series of crossover products made of porcelain and glass.
Inspired by nostalgic memory, the Pond Vase depicted and captured the classic exquisite Chinese garden scene, while the Oriental Table Lamp and Oriental Oil Lamp was printed with classic GuangCai fighting rooster patterns. They brought designs synthesizing traditional craftsmanship and brand-new perspectives for their new products and brands.
By displacing water "outside" of the vase, it became the pond uniting every element of the design into a classic Chinese garden scene. The soft shaped glass merges with the transparency of water, as if only air was holding the water that interacts with Yuet Tung classic goldfish prints on the porcelain.
A small bedside lamp to adorn the room with a subtle glow. Surrounded by four energetic roosters, the dish-shaped porcelain base can hold small accessories, at the same time allows the appreciation of fine craftsmanship of Yuet Tung's GuangCai patterns.
