Hong Kong is very densely populated, so many people live in high-rise buildings or condominiums. Each apartment is quite compact, averaging 40 square meters. For this reason, home building equipment with "high functionality & extremely efficient storage" have increasingly drawn attention in recent years, especially among the affluent class.
Simple yet refined designs have also become popular, and because downtown Hong Kong is a bustling tourist destination that annually attracts 50 million visitors, the showroom is serving as a communication hub for sharing the latest information with people across the world.
This newly opened showroom is focused on "proposing a refined lifestyle best suited for Hong Kong and becoming a communication hub by providing highly functional home building equipment with extremely efficient storage." Countless visitors have enjoyed a wide range of products on display.
