Site : Kapo Factory Building(Block A), 30 Playfair Rd, #04-06 Singapore 367998
Type : Retail Pop-up Space
Project Size : 400 sq ft
I met up with co-founder Deon Phua from Death Threads to talk about the space he was looking for his retail pop-up. Chancing upon this old factory building in Tai Seng along Upp Paya Lebar Rd, he quickly got hold of the lease as plans for the next event was projected to kick in soon for the highly motivated crew.
I love all things vintage and retro, and wanted to bring back that classic old-school half-coloured wall in a neutral tone, allowing their heap of quirky and colourful apparel to pop. I hope the huge litted “elevator buttons” on the ceiling can also help a certain imaginative kid pretend being stuck in a retro time machine, with all that old funk. Its a fuzzy feeling to have been a part of this small project and I hope the store brings kids today back into a place in time both Deon and I grew up in – The 90s
