North Pointer, 2021 Design Team: O&O Studio x REhypenation Take an artwork home! The piece North Pointer (aka Siu Kai Fong) was co-created with the residents, organisations and shops of North Point, carrying their unique memories and life histories. We sincerely invite you to bring this small piece of furniture home to share the stories of Hong Kong people with your family. Meanwhile, welcome this small piece of furniture as your new family member and engage with your moments of life.

Story behind the chair - The decades-old comfy rocking chair was donated by a Leung family, resident of the Tung Fat Building in North Point. This chair has been in use since the last generation. Due to relocation, and the Leung family learned about the "Via North Point" and North Pointer project, they took quick action and contacted the design team to donate it, so as to become one of the Siu Kai Fong members Dimensions: 83 x 54 x 100cm One of the artworks of “Via North Point”, a community public art initiative in 2021; now available at the Art Shop of Hong Kong Arts Centre, please reach out to our staff members for more information.
