Klomp! Hong Kong

Well there’s plenty of vinyl toys, and customs, there’s even a movie made about them, so here’s a nice change, towards customising other items. Klomp! is a cross-cultural design-for-charity event where Hong Kong and China based artists and designers were invited to design a pair of original Dutch wooden shoes (‘clogs’ in English, ‘klomp’ in Dutch). The Asian creativeness and flair, expressed on to these symbolic objects of the Dutch, produce something completely unique. There will be a charity auction to give these clogs a good home, which will end 28th May, with the proceeds going to Oxfam, Hong Kong. Our good friends Graphic Airlines (read our interview) were also involved in the project, and their piece looks brilliant as usual.
